Thanksgiving placecards

Last week, I made some Thanksgiving cupcake toppers. They went over pretty well here, so I decided to continue on with that theme for the Thanksgiving dinner that I'm hosting this year.

I used the exact same Create a Critter 2 cuts in the exact same colors.  I'm a little obsessive about things matching.

I made placecards out of dark brown cardstock and adhered a little bit of patterned paper with a brown, orange, yellow, and green polka dots.  Then I stamped our names in white ink using Lawn Fawn's "Harold's ABCs" set.  I'm still trying to get the hang of white ink, so it's not perfect and I ended up with white ink all over my hands.

I only made two for now, because I want to show them to my husband tonight when he gets home from work and see what he thinks before I mass produce them.  I'm trying to decide whether to add in the Create a Critter turkey as well or whether to just stick with the mammals.  Good thing I have a week to decide...

I'll be entering these placecards in the following challenges:
