12 Days of Christmas

Description:For the next holiday card prompt, we're making a card that features a numeral (like 25) or that features one of the elements from the song The 12 Days of Christmas, so break out those...

  • Twelve Drummers Drumming
  • Eleven Pipers Piping
  • Ten Lords a Leaping
  • Nine Ladies Dancing
  • Eight Maids a Milking
  • Seven Swans a Swimming
  • Six Geese a Laying
  • Five Golden Rings
  • Four Calling Birds
  • Three French Hens
  • Two Turtle Doves
  • and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Here is how we were inspired this week:

Stephanie says, "I found this vintage illustration of the 12 Days of Christmas in a Christmas Ideals book, so I scanned it and resized the first six days for the front of my card ... I just love those drawings.  All I added was a sticker sentiment and a wrap of neutral ribbon on a teal card base."

Lauren says, "I opted for the "feature numerals" version of the prompt, and I incorporated them via a fun little December calendar journaling card from Simple Stories. The calendar wound up being more covered up than I had imagined because I got very involved in framing up pretty bits of patterned paper with these ancient chipboard circle frames I found buried deeeeeeeeeeeeep in my holiday stash! I really love them, though, so I guess I'm ok with the limited view of the calendar. (Let's face it December always winds up being a bit of a blur anyway, right?)"

And we'll pick one lucky participant to win this fun little holiday giveaway (the stamp set includes the matching dies).
