Gloria Stengel 12 Days of Christmas Graphic 45 holiday card tutorial

I admit that this card is my second favorite of the series! I love the goose and the banners! Plus, the blue print on the reverse of the Ladies Dancing sheet is beautiful.


I created a fancy banner by cutting bits of paper with a banner die cut template. I added some sparkly ribbon and a few blue roses to really spice it up. (You could use the Cardstock Banners instead of die cut shapes.)


I fussy cut the goose from the Golden Rings paper and used foam adhesive to pop her off the page.


I decorated the inside of the card with another banner and a strip from the Joyeux Noel paper. I added a bit of pop by adding a sticker button.

"This is an easy project that you can keep simple for kids, or really doll them up for yourself or your crafty friends. All you need is a 12 Days of Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad, some adhesive and your choice of embellishments! If you want to make a tree topper like in my tree, you just need to flip a cone over and embellish upside down." -Denise Hahn
