Mr. Moose said it was time to create another Christmas card, and the first day of December seemed like a good day.
Before seeing the details of his requests, I want to congratulate the winner of my November Drawing…..Yay, Sheila G! You will receive the Stampin’ Up! Notebook and the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots, plus the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. All of my customers who ordered a minimum of $50.00 will receive the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, plus one of my handmade cards, as soon as I receive my order from Stampin’ Up!
You can see my December gift offering below Mr. Moose and his card.
Now for Mr. Moose, who was cut with the Moose Punch from Early Espresso Cardstock. He wanted to be placed on Dimensionals, so I gave him three layers of cardstock for sturdiness. Do you see the cute, Real Red Cardstock, bow, tied on his antler? We found it in the Special Day Dies, along with the bubble to show that he was speaking.
Mr. Moose felt that “Ho Ho Ho” would be easy for him to say, and appropriate for the season. We found it in the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, and stamped it in Early Espresso Ink.
Things were going quite well, up to this point. Then, Mr. Moose decided he wanted a “fancy fold” card, and told me to chop an inch off the front of the Thick Whisper White card base that was 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. I wasn’t sure what he had in mind, but this was his card, so I proceeded.
First, he wanted to walk on Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, 3 3/4″ X 2 1/4″. I liked this idea, so my customers could see how pretty the snowflakes were on the embossing folder they’d be receiving.
Next, Mr. Moose wanted red to match his bow, so I cut a piece of Real Red Cardstock, 3 1/4″ X 5″, and topped it with Heartwarming Hugs gingham paper, 3 1/4″ X 4 3/4″. But, that wasn’t sufficient, because he wanted a detailed edge, and found an Ornate Border Die for the top and bottom of the red layer.
We used that same die for the inside, Whisper White Cardstock layer, 3 1/4″ X 4 1/4″, and lined it up with the snowflake piece on the card front.
To complete the inside, he said Santa Claus always says, “Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas,” so we wrote “Merry Christmas” using Real Red Cardstock and two Word Wishes Dies.
Mr. Moose is proud of his card, and wanted to enter it in two challenges:
Fusion, for the sketch and “ho ho ho.”
TGIF, because Mr. Moose says his card is a magical Christmas card, and hopes you agree.
