Hi Stampers. We made it! It’s FRIDAY! This card is a bit of a flashback Friday. It uses some older plaid DSP and some retired Bakers Twine, BUT it can easily be re-created using current products. I’ve listed those current products in my links below. Now is the time to be working on our Christmas cards. The holidays will be here before we know it!
This year promises to to be different that all other years with more people shopping online and more people getting depressed. I’d like to help you with both of these issues. You can shop online with me and I can help you find just the right gift (I even offer gift certificates). Handmade Christmas cards are sure to bring a smile to someone who needs it! Every year, I get less and less cards in the mail and it’s sad. Let’s make this a year that Christmas cards come back in style!
This Merry Moose card has a standard card base in Shaded Spruce, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The background is a layer of plaid Designer Series Paper cut to 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″. Before adhering this layer to the card front, a piece of bakers twine was wrapped around this layer three times and tied off with a bow. A piece of Gold Foil, approx. 3″ x 1-3/4″ is adhered over the bakers twine.
The focal point of this card is a stitched circle cut using Cherry Cobbler CS and the Stitched Shapes Dies. Next up is a tree punched out of Shaded Spruce CS using the Pine Tree Punch and a moose punched out of Soft Suede CS using the Moose Punch. (Note: you can save 10% by buying the Merry Moose bundle, which includes the Merry Moose stamp set and the Moose Punch). The moose and tree were attached to the circle using a bit of Stampin’ Seal and the circle is adhered to the card front, over the gold foil, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS with the sentiment, from the Merry Moose stamp set, stamped in Shaded Spruce ink. Before adhering it to the inside of the card, a tree punched out of Shaded Spruce CS (with the Pine Tree Punch) and a moose punched out of the same DSP as the card front (using the Moose Punch). These were adhered to the layer, using liquid glue, with a bit hanging off of each side. A pair of paper snips were used to trim off the excess from the back side (it’s easier to see). The layer is then adhered to the inside using Stampin’ Seal.
