Here’s what you will need to make hand-lettered fun fall foliage place cards:

Step One:

Let’s create a color palette!  I started out with the bright traditional colors of Fall and added the deep jewel tones to give my place cards a modern twist.  Mix and match and don’t be afraid to be BOLD!

Step Two:

Trim tan cardstock to 3″ by 6″ rectangles and fold each one in half.  Create rectangles of color on white cardstock with Dual Brush Pens 565, 636, 528 and 757.
