Christmas table setting

Hello everyone, and a very warm welcome to Kristen of a Simply Enchanted Life, who is a new recent follower. Kristen is a stay at home Mum to 6 girls and her blog includes recipe ideas and book reviews. This busy lady also makes jewelry and handmade bath and body items to sell in her online shops.

Well today it is time for the final challenge of the year over at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

and this time it is a month long challenge with 2 themes, firstly - an anything goes Christmas card, and secondly - anything but a card. This week I am sharing my anything but a card. I chose to use a pretty Christmas candle image from Fitztown called Winter 2 and made my Christmas table place settings.



I reduced the size of the image to make my placecards and cut them out with a Papertrey Ink placecard die and stamped the matching border image on it. I finished them off by stamping the names on the cards with the AveryElle Lovely Letters alphabet stamp set, and a little holly stamp.



For the napkin holders, I simply coloured the candle images, cut them with a circle punch, and added a backing layer with a scallop punch. I made a tube of thin card to push the napkin through and adhered the focal image.



And finally, I cut out a gable favour box on my Silhouette Cameo, and added another circle focal image with a couple of background layers on the front.



I know we are all really busy at this time of year but I really enjoyed playing with these simple ideas that are easy to make multiples of, and I hope they will look good on my Christmas table.

Thanks for stopping by, and while you are here, why not pop over to the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and see what my talented Team mates have for your inspiration.
