Over here at our home, Christmas is a really simple celebration. My mum has donated our old tree to a church together with all the ornaments a few years ago, and we've never had a tree since. I guess a miniature tree does not count ;) The family is always together for Christmas and we'd go out to a local restaurant for Christmas dinner. I'd probably bake a cake and some shortbread cookies, but that's it. So, I've never had to make any place cards for the dinner table...well... maybe someday.
For this week's Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge, I made little cards measuring 3.75x4" which could be used as a place card or a note card. I've not put any sentiment on the cards so I could decide later how to use them, maybe on the presents.
Here's a close up pic:
I really love the Nordic Winter designs and how great the patterns look when stamped on a plain cardstock. I stamped the background with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink and the patterned paper is from Echo Park Christmas Dots & Stripes. The Gingerbread man is from the set Candy Jar Christmas, another favourite set of mine. The cards were based on this sketch:
