Good morning! Fridays roll around pretty quickly. Being retired, it doesn't make a lot of difference to me now. I do remember waiting on Fridays though. This week we are going to have a card using the Merry Moose stamp set. This set was around last year. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to come up with anything fresh. I think I have done it. So this week the card is designed by me.
This might look hard, but just follow the steps. There is some coloring, but simple coloring. Here are all the details.

Scraps of Basic Black and Whisper White
On the Whisper White layer, stamp the tree from Merry Moose in Garden Green ink across the paper. Stamp off before stamping some of them. Start about 1/3 up from the bottom of the paper.
Stamp four moose in Early Espresso on Whisper White card stock. Color the moose with a Light Crumb Cake blend for the antlers and a Dark Crumb Cake Blend for the body of each moose. Punch out with the Moose Punch.
On a 1 inch strip of Basic Black card stock, add a 1 inch strip of Foam Adhesive Sheets. You will need more than one strip of foam adhesive. Cut out the letters MOOSE CROSSING using the Playful Alphabet dies.
Adhere the letters. The letters for Moose are placed about 1 inch from the top. Place the white layer on Grid Paper so that it is straight. Lay a straight edge across the paper. I taped my straight edge on the ends so it would not slip. Place the letters so they are centered and then peal off the backs and add to the layer.
The word CROSSING will take up the whole row. It’s added about 2 inches from the top. Add the letters until you get to the I. Glue one of the moose so that the antlers will be under the letters N and G. Add those letters.
Glue ½ moose to the right of the layer so that it looks like it is walking past.
Add the other 2 moose with dimensionals. Cut some thin strips of the foam adhesive for the legs.
Stamp three scarves in Real Red on white scrap. Fussy cut and glue to the moose. Stamp the Santa hat in Real Red. Color in the hat with a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker (Regals). Add with a little of the foam adhesive.
Stamp the saying on Whisper White in Real Red. Cut out with the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes dies. Add with dimensionals.
Finish by adding a bow of Linen Thread with a rolled up glue dot.
If you wish to finish the inside of the card, stamp the saying in Real Red. Stamp trees in Garden Green stamping off one of them.
Stamp, color, and punch out a moose as on the front of the card. Stamp and cut out a scarf for the moose.
