The Twelve Days of Christmas

Hi, everyone! Happy Friday, Happy Weekend!

I'm here tonight with a card inspired by Jingle Belle's Hark the Herald Angels Sing Challenge, which is to make a card inspired by a Christmas carol. For my card, I remembered some generic musical dp and a paper  with a Twelve Days of Christmas theme.

Once I decided to go with these papers, I wondered how I could build my card around the current Mojo sketch.

KaiserCraft merry & bright collection; stash musical dp; Core'dinations chocolate lovers cardstock
gold elements: heat embossed using Inkadinkado powder and a Versamark pen
Spellbinders Nestabilities scallop die; Paper Smooches wave die
Stampin' Up linen thread; circles created using various SU dies
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Ranger multi medium matte; Recollections foam adhesives

The gold accents were all done by heat embossing the brown cardstock with Inkadinkado gold powder and a Versamark pen. The circle embellishments were embossed twice. And, the circular dp element was punched out of one of the KaiserCraft tags. If you look closely, you can see it ties into the Twelve Days theme.

Parting Thoughts

Have a great weekend! I'll be back tomorrow with a W2CB mid-challenge mini project. Until then, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
