Stampin’ Up! has this fabulous kit in the Holiday Mini Catalog that is super cute for any Thanksgiving Tablescape! But if your family is anything like mine there is so much food and chaos going on that there is no room for cute decorations! So why not think outside the box??? Check out these fabulous cards that I created with all of the supplies inside the kit (minus the card bases which are crumb cake cardstock). I was able to create over 30 cards and 10 treat bags! Come back again tomorrow to see how I created treat bags with the napkin pouches!
The card that I did above was created using half of the menu card (the yellow striped piece) and a small piece of the Designer Series Paper from the strips (the orange piece). The package comes with these amazing chalkboard pieces which I thought were totally just black cardstock. Whoa, was I wrong! It is this crazy slick, textured, plastic-like piece and it so looks and feels amazing! I used the fabulous Chalk Marker for the greeting! This is the greatest white marker I have ever used! It writes very clear and amazing! The little notches on the chalkboard piece make it easy to wrap the twine around and the kit comes with die-cut leaves!
This card uses the the hounds-tooth printed paper (in the package to be used as food tent cards) as your background piece. You need to cut off about a 1/2″ piece which I then added to the inside for a little POP of color/decoration on the inside! The Chocolate Chip patterned piece comes from the roll of paper in the kit! That roll seems never endings! I added a little twine and another one of the die-cut leaves! The kit also comes with a roll of this birch paper which is super cool because it is textured and not actual cardstock (sort of plastic feeling too). I stamped the Magnificent Maple leaf on there in Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango and then used my Label Framelits to cut it out! Love it! Post in the comments if you have any other outside the box ideas that you have for this fabulous kit! And be sure to come back again tomorrow for the Technique Tuesday – Treat Bag!
