Twelve Days of Christmas

This week's Jingle Belles Prompt has multiple options. As the song the Twelve Days of Christmas suggests, you can create a holiday card for your *True Love* or for any other extra-special person in your life.  

An alternative is to create a holiday card with a heart (or hearts) on it.  

And your final choice is to create a holiday card that references any aspect of the song *The Twelve Days of Christmas*. Just make sure you let us know which option (or options) you're choosing for your design.

Here's how we were inspired:

Stephanie says, "I combined the first amd second option to make a true love card & include some hearts.  I started with a Red Metallic Shimmer Gel Press Print that I then embossed with a heart embossing folder.  I applied direct-to-paper red ink to bring out the heart pattern.  Next I stamped, colored, and detail cut two adorable skating polar bears from Impression Obsession Cool Yule.  I die cut a stitched landscape & stamped the sentiment and die cut with a Spellbinders Tag That! Die.  The design & colors of my card were inspired by the Inspiration Photo at Just Us Girls Challenge."

Lauren says, "I also employed two out of three, by putting "Four Calling Birds" inside a heart! My "calling birds" are Eyelet Outlet CardinalCardinal Profile and Female Cardinal Brads. Now, I'm not sure exactly what type of birds were intended by the carol, but Cardinals are not really known for their song... unless you count some serious squawking when another bird gets too close to something they consider theirs lol; but they look pretty cute, don't they? I've added some diecut greens and placed my heart frame on a background of vintage sheet music set off with a bit of Wide Brick Washi and a scattering of tiny red Star Sequins."


And one lucky participant will receive the Impression Obsession Christmas Words Stamp Set.
