{Spotlight Project} Monika Goes Festive With the Vignette: Eat Drink Be Merry Set

Hello, everybody! It's Monika back again with another spotlight feature for you. Today I'm getting into the festive spirit by looking at quick and easy table decorations using the new VIGNETTE: Eat Drink Be Merry set.

When I first saw this set I knew it was perfect for adding that finishing touch to any festive table; hence, we are making place cards and napkin rings -- a couple of projects you can quite easily mass produce even for larger parties. It should only take you a couple of hours.

Here they are:

First up is the place card which I made from a die cut label (approx. 9 cm x 5.5 cm) and a little tab for the back (6.5 cm x 5 cm with a scored line at 4.5 cm measured on the longer side).

I stamped the sentiment along the lower edge of my label and the place setting above using Pool Party ink. I then added my diecut letters centrally to be in line with the lower edge of my stamped place settings before attaching my little folded tab at the back of my label to make my card stand.

Next, I used a strip of thin cardstock 15 cm x 4.5 cm and punched a decorative border alongside one length. I then simply stamped my place setting using Pool Party ink, softened my card somewhat using my fingers and attached both sides to form a ring before finishing off with a punched snowflake and matching pearl.
I made a little craft along video with the usual pointers as I go along.

Before I go, just a quick reminder about our DT call. If you're interested in joining this amazingly creative team, check out the details here.

That's it from me for today. I'll be back soon with more festive projects. Until then...Happy Crafting :-)
