OCC Challenge - 12 Days of Christmas Inspiration

Saturday, December 5, 2009

Hello there! Today is Saturday and that means a new challenge is up at Our Creative Corner. This week, Jenny Gropp challenged us to be inspired by the song, The 12 Days of Christmas. For this challenge, I took the line "...and a partridge in a pear tree" or more specifically, just the word "pear". I took out my Basic Grey Nook & Pantry Collection for the paper used on the card. The pears are on one side, and the green cross-hatch design is on the flip-side.
The words "simply the" are printed on my computer and then cut into individual letters. I've seen this done all over the place, but this is the first time I've tried it. It was very easy and a great way to say exactly what you want.

I hope you enjoy this week's challenge. Head on over to Our Creative Corner and see what parts of "The 12 Days of Christmas" the DT was inspired by. We would love you to play along! Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Dana, this is lovely - your pear paper was perfect! I haven't done that trick of cutting letters apart much myself but you're right, it's a hot trend and it looks great. Love the big green letters on the twill, too!

Very fresh twist on the challenge, Dana! It's so great to see the different ways of interpreting the challenge. Love that paper and the chunky letters look fabulous on the twill!
