Day 1 – and a ….

Double D Challenges – Twelve Days of Christmas Part 1 Challenge

Partridge in a Pear Tree….but wait where’s the tree! For my card for the Double D Challenge of Twelve Days of Christmas, I chose Day 1 “Partridge in a Pear Tree” but only after searching through some stamp sets for what I believe is a partridge. My partridge and the sentiment were both from a 2008 The Cat’s Pajamas clearly swanky stamp set. The frame stamped in GKD’s Christmas Pine ink is also a GKD stamp from Christmas Wishes. In lieu of an actual tree, even though you cannot make it out clearly, I did emboss the checked layer of patterned paper with a Darice tree embossing folder and the “golden” pears were found online and fussy cut. The sprig of leaves is a Tim Holtz Sizzix thinlits die that I trimmed down to fit.

Thanks for looking and happy to play along in another fun challenge from Double “D”.

  1. This is wonderful Gayle. You did a beautiful job of finding and putting together the various elements. I don’t see the tree, but I’m sure it is there. Your pears look so real.

  2. I really like the clean and simple look of this card. The modern style dove with a sprig leaf and the dainty circle is a great design. Thanks so much for joining in the fun at Double D Twelve Days of Christmas 1-6. I hope you will join in for days 7-12. Merry Christmas!
