Today’s card is just so sweet – and yet it is also masculine. It would be perfect for a man for just about any occasion, but I have chosen it to be a Christmas card. The Merry Moose stamp set and coordinating Moose Punch are a carryover from last years catalog – and I love the sentiments and images in this set.
The finished size of the notecards is 3 1/2 x 5 – a perfect size for a quick note. For this particular card I hav e adhered Merry Merlot card stock – a nice masculine color – that is cut 3 1/4 x 4 3/4. Adhered to that on dimensionals is a panel of Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP. For some added strength to the DSP I did adhere with liquid glue a piece of Whisper White slightly smaller in size.
Next I added a length of the Black/ White Bakers Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack, and tied it in a bow, placed a glue dot just beneath the knot to keep it in place. Then come these cute moose marching across… one in Basic Black card stock and one in Whisper White card stock. They were punched with the Moose Punch – so quick and easy! They are mounted on dimensionals as well. For a final touch I added three white elements from the All The Trimmings Embellishments and the card front was complete. I love the simplicity of this notecard.
For the inside… and the envelope…
I choose to stamp the larger tree from the Merry Moose stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink and the added grass in Garden Green ink (hard to tell that). The sentiment, also from the Merry Moose stamp set is stamped in Merry Merlot ink. For the envelope, I used the same design from the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap. Done, done, done.
Here’s a last look at the completed project – and as I said b efore, I love the simplicity of this card.
The product list may be found below. I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Tomorrow I hope to show you an card or two made with another of the stamp sets that will be in the Jan-Jun 20212 Mini Catalog. Until then…
