I used the Stampin’ Up! Jolly Friends stamp set to create my Jolly Moose Christmas card for our hop for today. This week, we have a color challenge using these rich holiday colors:
I also used the sketch over at Fab Friday to give some creation inspiration
I stamped my moose image from Jolly Friends in Early Expresso, and fussy cut him with my Paper Snips. Next, I stamped the cap parts in Cherry Cobbler ink and punched them with the Jolly Hat Builder Punch. The scarf was also stamped in Cherry Cobbler, but I fussy cut it. The sentiment is from Tin of Tags. It was stamped in Garden Green, then die cut with a Layering Ovals Framelit Die. I framed that oval with another scalloped oval in Cherry Cobbler.
My card base is Crumb Cake. First, I stamped the snow flake images from Christmas Pines several times in Garden Green ink onto my Garden Green card stock panel. The banners were cut from the Warmth & Cheer DSP. Then, I swirled some Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Baker’s Twine onto the front before adding the sentiment ovals with dimensionals.
For the inside, I stamped Merry Christmas, from Better Together, and die cut another oval. Then, I die cut some “mistletoe” from the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies and tied them together with more of the Baker’s Twine.
Card stock cuts and products used are listed at the end of the post.
