Julia is a sucker for stunning place settings, and particularly ones with an element of surprise. That’s why she’s especially excited about her September 2021 stencil release, aptly call Thanksgiving Place Card, which will allow you to make a plethora of edible message or name cards to grace your holiday table. (The surprise is that the cards taste as good as they look!) Use the readymade inscriptions from the message and frame set, or leave the frames empty and personalize your cookies by writing, piping, or stenciling guests’ names inside instead. Julia also recommends using her Denver Plaque cutter (last two photos in the gallery), which is specifically designed to work with these stencils. It’s long and slender, perfect for place cards, and its ends and center are purposely flared to accommodate the many cute graphic elements in this release’s background set.
Remember, all of Julia’s Dynamic Duos™ sets are designed in pairs: one set with the graphic elements (in this case, the ears of wheat background, mum wreath and swag, and mini turkey, pumpkins, Pilgrim’s hat, pine cones, and Indian corn) and another set with the complementary messages and frames. As you can see in the gallery images, both sets can be used alone or together; they can also be purchased bundled or separately. The bundled price is listed here.
