Week 150 One Layer Card

How quickly the One Layer Card challenge 
seems to come around!
This time the subject we have chosen is

The 12 days of Christmas
Feel free to interpret this how you wish... but we would like to see some connection!

Tomorrow is my 40th Wedding Anniversary. How quickly that time has gone too!
Maybe that will give you the clue as to the inspiration for my first card this week!
Here we have Two Turtle Doves!
The images are from InkyDoodles Warm Winter Wishes set and I love the quirky look of them!
The sentiment is from Penny Black.

I had the same idea as Jen for my second card with the wonderful Penny Black set. Tonight I will be singing all about the Geese a-laying and the Lords a-leaping and the rest of them in my choir's annual Christmas Concert. That should be fun!

This week I decided to take the theme literally and use the fabulous Penny Black 12 Days of Christmas set.  Here are 3 of the cards of a set of 12 to show you.
I heat embossed the images in black onto crumbcake card stock and then coloured them with prisma pencils.  I finished the edges with either a corner chomper or a little bit of piercing.

We hope that you are enjoying your preparations for Christmas, but still find time to play along with us this week.


  1. Beautiful and fun cards you both made; great inspiration again. Chrissie I wish you a fine Wedding Anniversary day tomorrow! The carol isn´t known that well here, so I learned something new... Inky greetings, Gerrina

  2. Wishing you a very Happy 40th Anniversary, Chrissie and Mr Chrissie!
