Thanksglitter Place Cards

I am in love with Core’dinations glitter cardstock. It’s what I used in my “All That Glitters” wreath, and as I mentioned in that post, I couldn’t resist buying several other colors. Psssst….it’s on sale this week at JoAnn’s…5 sheets for $.95. That’s a lot of bling for under a buck!

I decided it was time for new place cards this year and a color called Copper Shimmer went perfectly with the project I shared over at A Glimpse Inside today.

I cut my place cards from copper cardstock (4x6, so they’ll be 4x3 when folded), then panels from K and Company’s Fall Wheat Scroll paper, edged them with coordinating (and glittered) scrapbook borders  from KandCo.

Ran Memory Box’s Fall Leaf Trio die through my die cut machine and cut the leaves from the Copper Shimmer paper. Cut everyone’s initials on my Expression (Jasmine cart) from the same great metallic vinyl I used on my Autumn Lantern, and finished with more of the glittered turkeys I used on my wreath. Is that enough glitter for you? lol .

Love these, Carol! The bling is fantastic. So warm for fall! I agree with Jenny, you should open an Etsy shop!
