Artiste Napkin Ring Placecards

I used our new Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut these simple, yet cute, place cards that double as napkin rings.  The tag is cut from the Pear and Partridge paper pack and the oval is New England Ivy cardstock.  I used our new silver metallics marker to write in each person's name.  What a simple way to add a festive touch to your place setting during the holidays!
