The Twelve Days of Christmas


What are the 12 Twelve Days of Christmas?

The 12 days of Christmas is the period that in Christian theology marks the span between the birth of Christ and the coming of the Magi, the three wise men. It begins on December 25 (Christmas) and runs through January 6 (the Epiphany, sometimes also called Three Kings' Day). 

In any case, the song most of us are familiar with today comes from an English composer named Frederic Austin; in 1909, he set the melody and lyrics and added as his own flourish the drawn-out cadence of "five go-old rings."

This is an ATC Display Tray from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. It measures 11.5 inches by 11.75 inches.  Displays 12 cards.  Precision laser cut from .10 Chipboard.

This is the finished tray - I've used it to display Graphic 45's ATC Policy Envelopes embellished with the Twelve Days of Christmas.

This project uses a Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts two-piece tray.

One is a solid piece of chipboard and the other is this:

The top piece has the blocks cut out, and uses Distress Ink "Fired Brick".

This line of paper is beautiful! The two cut-out papers are layered with Stampin" Up Dimensionals to pop up each layer. Each Policy Envelope has a combination of Graphic 45 stickers and/or chipboard pieces.
