My table cards were made of the same wood veneer as out invitations.
originally we were going to slice corks to use as stands, but our venue was outside and I feared they would blow away! Our venue had an old door with string that they suggested we could slip out cards on.
I used leftover wood veneer from our invitations, which I cut to size (sissors worked just fine!)
After trying a few different writing options, I was going to have to make these darker for the Metallic Pen to show up, and everything else seemed to bleed into the wood grain.
Cute, relatively easy, and cost effective for us!!
