Stampin' Up!

…And a Partridge in a Pear Tree!

We are now officially in the Twelve Days of Christmas which begins December 25th, Christmas Day and ends on January 6th – Three Kings Day.  so I’m a little late with my Partridge in a Pear Tree.   But I thought this would be the perfect time for a Thank You card.  After all if you are following good etiquette, then it’s time to write thank you cards for all the gifts you received on Christmas Day.  So here’s a little inspiration for you.


This card uses the Feathers & Frost stamp set from the 2018 Holiday catalog that will be officially retiring December 31st, so if you want this stamp set, you need to place your order pronto!


And the “Thank You” sentiment comes from this stamp set – Humming Along, that is one of the new stamp sets that will be in the 2019 Occasions Catalog during Sale-A-Bration which starts January 2 and runs through March 31st…so a little sneak peak for you!


Since today is actually the 3rd Day of Christmas which is Three French Hens….maybe we could pretend that this bird is a French Hen and that the other two are hiding in the leaves???


If you’d like to make this card, this is what you’ll need:

  • Feathers & Frost Stamp Set
  • Humming Along Stamp Set (or your favorite “Thank You” stamp)
  • Granny Apple Green Cardstock – Cut 5 1/2” x 8 1/2”; scored at 4 1/4”
  • Whisper White Cardstock – Cut two pieces 5 1/4” x 4” (one for outside of card, one for the inside) and a piece 3 1/2” x 3 1/2”
  • Mango Melody Cardstock – Cut 3 5/8” x 3 5/8”
  • Stampin’ Blends – Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Real Red
  • Ink: Mango Melody (for sentiment) and Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Snail Adhesive

Although if you follow along on the song lyrics of the Twelve Days of Christmas, “On the Third Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:  Three French Hens, Two Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear Tree”

Hope you’ll be using your best manners and writing those “Thank You” cards today!

Happy Stamping!
