These DIY Thanksgiving place cards are so easy to make. They feature shimmery copper trim and will add a rustic touch to your Thanksgiving table decor.
I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. My family is all together and there is plenty of yummy food. We always go around the table and say what we are thankful for.
Thanksgiving decorations can be hard to find in the store. They seem to skip right from Halloween into Christmas. So I tend to make a lot of Thanksgiving crafts to fill in for what I can’t find in the store.
Today’s craft is a pretty DIY Thanksgiving place card. It features shimmery copper ribbon and uses the baby wipe stamping technique.

DIY Thanksgiving Place Setting Cards Instructions
Cut the paper:
- Cut the card base to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. (Use Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, or Old Olive to match stamping.) Place the long edge at the top of a scoring board and score at 2-3/4″.
- Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to 4″ x 2-1/2″.
- Cut a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to 4″ x 3/4″.
- Adhere the Wood Textures strip to the bottom of the Very Vanilla piece. This will help you line up the stamping in the next step.
- Using Soft Suede ink pad, stamp the I am Thankful for You stamp (from the Painted Harvest stamp set) just above the Wood Textures strip on the right side.
- Using the Crumb Cake ink pad, stamp the detailed maple leaf stamp (from the Colorful Seasons stamp set) onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock
- Fold a baby wipe in half and then in half again. Place it on a piece of cardboard or something thick that will protect your work surface from ink stains.
- Add 3-6 drops each of Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive ink. Place the drops close together. The ink spot needs to be big enough to ink up the maple leaf stamp. This will act as your ink pad.
- Press the solid maple leaf stamp (from the Colorful Seasons stamp set) into the inked baby wipe and then stamp it over top of the maple leaf you already stamped.
Use the larger maple leaf die from the Seasonal Layers die set to cut out the stamped leaf image.
- Cut a 6″ length of copper trim. Center it on the Wood Textures layer. Use mini glue dots to adhere the ends to the back of the card.
- Tie a small bow in the copper trim and use a glue dot to adhere it to the left side of the copper trim.
- Stick Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the Very Vanilla card and adhere it to the card base.
- Add Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the maple leaf die cut and adhere it to the card, sticking the stem under the ribbon.
