12 Days of Crafting with TCP - Christmas Placecards

Hello friends! Today I'm back for another day of The Cat’s Pajamas 12 Days of Crafting!  I thought it would be fun and festive to create place cards for our Christmas table.  For us, Christmas Eve after Church is all about our extended family, but Christmas Day is our family of 5, plus significant others if they are around.

So, I created a set of place cards that will match our dinnerware and the ever cute and retro set Give A Little from the November Release.  

I began by printing the whole digi set on Copic XPress it paper, and colouring the images up with Copics in colours that would coordinate with what we had.  Then I trimmed out each image, die cut some sparkly snowflakes from a retired TCP die, and started to assemble simple folded place cards (2”x 3 1/4”) from cardstock. I ink-blended the edges of the cardstock to get a little more depth of colour.  

I tried to pick the image that matched something about the person, so since my husband is my honey, he gets our favourite bear PJ.  

Next up, for our son who grew up milling through the presents to see how many he had, it’s Poochie the pup.  On each place card I have some mirrored holeless sequins and their name written in white gel pen.  

Now for our other son it’s Poochie surrounded by presents and stuffies.  

Next, for our daughter, it’s Sprinkles the Cat on a candy cane. 

And finally, one for me.  And since I’m the shortest in the family, I get the ornament holding penguin.  

They make a sweet little set ready for Christmas Day!  Hope you’ve enjoyed the tour!
