  1. Adhere the 4" x 4" autumn leaves paper to the front of the placard. 1.5" from the bottom, adhere the .5" x 4" green strip across the front. Cut out the 3" circle scallop from the 3.25" x 3.25" piece of green cardstock. Adhere this partway off the top edge of the placard so that from the top of that scallop to the bottom, the height measures 5.5".


  2.  Distress the edges of the oval with all four colors of the Palette inks. Put the name on each placard when you know who will be coming to your dinner and then adhere it with foam mounting adhesive to the placard as shown.


  3. Stamp the image on the 2.5" x 2.5" off white cardstock. Color the image. Cut out the image with the 2 3/8" circle die. Distress the edges as you did with the oval. Cut out the red 2 5/8" circle scallop from the 2.75" x 2.75" piece of real red cardstock. Adhere the image to the red scallop. Adhere the image and the red scallop with foam mounting adhesive to the green scallop as shown.
