Little tutorial for the 12 Days of Krafty Handmade Giving!

Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 11 of The 12 Days of Krafty Handmade Giving! As you may know, each day from December 1st-12th the DT are sharing lots of handmade goodies on the KKS blog featuring Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! We know that you're always looking for fun things to create besides cards but especially at this time of year! So we've got lots of amazing and creative things to share from tags, to notepads, to holiday decor!

I decided to make a few place cards for the dinner table for guests, nice on a table and which can be kept as little souvenirs. Here is what I used for mine:

Black Cardstock
Scoring Board
Gold paint marker
Letter Stickers
Some of your favourite Kraftin' Kimmie stamps
Colouring Medium

Step 1

Select some of your favourite stamps, bearing in mind that you want to use mostly the heads of the characters, which will need to fill some of the space on the side of the card. You can also choose stamps to match the personality of your guests :)
The 3 stamps I have chosen are Snow Days, Oh, Snap! and Lana.

Step 2

In your black cardstock, cut three 3.5 x 3.5" squares to make your three place cards. Please note, I first measured the heads of my characters and thought about where it would be nice to cut them/ chop off their heads before deciding on the size of my cards. 

Step 3

Score your squares at 1.75" to create the base of the place cards.

Step 4

Colour your images - I used Copics for mine - cut the bottom of the images with your paper trimmer and fussy cut the rest of the images. 

Step 5

With a gold paint pen, create a frame you like to add interest to your place cards. 

Step 6

Stick your image to one side of the card and add names using stickers as I have done - or in your own handwriting if you feel confident enough - not my case ;)

Copics used for "Anne":

Clothes: C5, R35, 37, 39, 81, 83, 85, W1, 3

Here is the second place card I have created:

Hair: E25, 31, 59
Clothes: V09, 15, 17

And the third one - my favourite :P - for the KKS boss lady ;)...

Skin: E000, 00, 11, 71, R20

And the three of them together!

Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,
