Cookie & Card Challenge - Thanksgiving Place Cards

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Time for the Cookie & Card challenge with Georganne and I.   I decided to get ahead of the game, for me, and make our Thanksgiving place cards.  Georganne made these so cute cookie place cards and I decided to go off her design for them.  This is her project:

To see how she made her cookies go HERE.  Here is my project that I made off those cookies:

The place card size is 3.5" x 2.5".  The white cardstock is 3.25" x 2.25".  The pumpkins I cut with my Silhouette and they are about 2.25" tall.  To make it more designed for the person on the card I embossed the pumpkin with a folder that reminded me of them.  The fancy swirls for my mom, funky polka dots for my nephew, and the grid for my brother.

Here is a pic of the side of the place card:
Here is a pic of the back of the place card:
I glued down a strip of green paper that is 3.25" x 2.25" and folded it in half to create the ledge for it to lean on.

Oh my goodness! I love, love, LOVE the texture on those pumpkins!!! And also, I think you are a complete genius for you card-standing-up-method. I always just use a top fold and it's entirely unstable because my papers are always too big. This is perfect!!
