The Ninth Day of Christmas

Sunday, December 9, 2012

I recently participated in a fun project organized by the neat folks at Alpha Stamps. They invited a number of guest designers to join their team to create ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) using the 12 Days of Christmas themes. You can see the entire gallery on their site, here.

I was assigned Day 9 (9 Ladies Dancing) and received a whole stack of images from them to work with. They said that we use creative license so I decided to take a different spin on dancing ladies.

For this card, I made 9 Prancing Pachyderms! The little ellies are attached with small brads so they can really prance around.

This 9 Ladies Lucking Out card was inspired by an image of a roulette wheel that I received! I like the idea of 9 feisty ladies gambling with their Christmas money and winning big! I used a small green LED light in the middle of the wheel to make it feel more loud and casino-like. I also used green felt under the words since it made me think of poker tables.

Now that I've done Day 9, I want to create silly cards for the other days! Fortunately all of the participating designers came up with great ideas that we can use for inspiration. Definitely check out the gallery to admire the awesome work! Special thanks to my friend Kristin from Junk & Stuff (also known as rackycoo to fellow Craftster members) for inviting me to join this project.

Happy Ninth Day of Christmas! Happy Second Night of Hanukkah! Happy Everything!!
