LSS Christmas Placecards

Yeah, this is my first DT post for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, so please be gentle with me! I'm so grateful to Lindsay for chosing me to be a part of her team. Well for my first make I have used the 'Christmas Cupcake Wrapper Set', but I have done my own take on these images...............just click on the link to purchase your own LSS Digital images. Please also check out Lindsay's own blog, where you will find some fab freebies.

I have used the Cupcake Wrapper to make some Christmas Name Placecards. I have used all of the five different images for our Christmas table.............but I do have another five to make for our large family. My mum is cooking Christmas dinner on Boxing Day this year and her colour scheme is Black & Silver, so these little makes will be winging their way to my mum shortly.

I altered the PNG files in Adobe Photoshop to a Black background and also changed the round images to insert my family names. Once they were printed out onto White card, I then filled in parts of the white images with a Silver Marker pen.

There were lots of circles to these makes.........I cut a zigzag silver card edge around the Cupcake Wrappers to give them some bling. Then I used some Kebab wooden sticks and coloured them with my black marker pen. I matt and layered the name circles and again edged them with silver card and my zigzag scissors. A bit of RicRac Silver ribbon and done!!
Why not give them a go for your Christmas table or maybe you want to use them for their intended purpose.............Cupcake Wrappers. For more information please visit Lindsay's Store to check out her digital images.
Take care and please feel free to ask any questions. Toodles Nettie.xx

  5. well done you, they look fab & will go with all my other accessories that I have bought or borrowed over the last week. Can't wait to lay the dining table especially as I have discovered it is easier 7 cheaper to you a black bed sheet instead of buying an expensive tablecloth.
