I was so excited to see the Merry Moose stamp set and coordinating Moose punch in the Holiday catalog. Punches are so easy to use. I was really happy to see so many punch offerings in the Holiday catalog. Here is my card for today.
I also love the new Basic Pattern Decorative Masks on page 35 of the catalog. You could miss these since they are in a small picture in the lower left of the page.
The card base is Soft Suede 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Using the tree trunk masks color with a sponge dauber around the outside of the base about 1/2 inch. The rest of the front will be covered. Sponge with Soft Suede.
The Early Espresso layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. The Seaside Spray layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. Use the masks and the dauber to color in the trees over all of this layer. Use Soft Suede.
Tear is piece of 1 x 4 3/4 Whisper White across the top and add to the bottom of the Seaside Spray layer. Stamp the saying from Animal Outing in Early Espresso to the right of the card.
Stamp the moose on Whisper White in Early Espresso. Color with the Light and Dark Crumb Cake blends. Punch out the moose. Glue to the card. Add footprints in Soft Suede. Stamp the raccoon on Whisper White again in Early Espresso. Use Light and Dark Soft Suede and Light and Dark Smoky Slate blends to color. This image will need to be fussy cut and glued to the card front.
For the inside, the saying is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set. Add another moose.
I wanted to show that the Merry Moose stamp set is not just for Christmas. It makes a great birthday card, too. We did make this card in one of my classes. Some did want to change the sentiments so that it was a Christmas card. That's fine, too!
Here is a video to show how to make this card. Please share if you find it helpful and feel free to subscribe to my Youtube channel. I would love that!
