The Most Adorable Moose!

Hello there you jolly little moose! I love all of the stamps in this set but I think this moose is my favorite. I reserve the right to change my mind on that tomorrow, but, for today this guy is my fave! I wanted to make a simple Christmas card that I could easily reproduce but that still had some fun elements to it and this is what I came up with.

I stamped the moose in Basic Black Archival ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, fussy cut it out, and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I popped the moose up with dimensionals on top of some Gold Metallic Thread and a Real Red star that I embossed with the Festive embossing folder. 


The background is stamped in Versamark on Sahara Sand to create a subtle starry background behind our star of the show (the moose of course!). I finished the card off by layering Crumb Cake cardstock on a Basic Black card base. 


Easy peasy! I'm planning to make a set of these for a craft fair I'll be participating in at the beginning of December. Hopefully someone will take them home.

  3. Love this card. Trying something similar for my overseas relatives (I'm in Canada). Wondering if you reinforced the antlers - mine are very floppy once fussy cut. ALso, what set is the great in from? Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Hi Lynda! I believe I did add some dimensionals behind the antlers. The greeting is from Snow Place (with the cute penguins). Have fun making your cards! Share them when you're done!
