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…
Thanks for stopping by.
May you have a beautiful day.

For my cards today I have chosen to play with the Merry Moose stamp set and the coordinating Moose Punch. Lots of clever sayings and stamps in this set. Let’s take a look at what I created – two different cards, same layout, DSP is simply turned over to use the other side for the background.
For card 1 I used the Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP adhered to seaside Spray cs, stamped & punched the moose from Whisper White card stock and mounted it with dimensionals then stamped the sentiment directly on the DSP. I also stamped the scarf, fussy cut it, added the glamorous Wink of Stella, some Iridescent Pearls and the card front was done.
For card 2 I began with the same Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP but turned it over to use the other side! I adhered it to Seaside Spray cs, then cut a banner for the bottom out of Seaside Spray & Whisper White. I stamped the sentiment in Seaside Spray ink on the Whisper White panel then adhered it to the Seaside Spray strip and adhered this to the card front with liquid glue. I then punched the moose from Basic Black cs & Whisper White cs (to create a shadow effect for the moose), adhered them together with liquid glue and attached this to the banner. He needed a scarf too and that was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink, fussy cut and adhered with liquid glue. And oh yes, that scarf got Wink of Stella as well. A small Rhinestone Basic Jewel was added for his eye.
Two completely different cards – similar by using the same basic colors, just changing it up a bit. Love how easy this was to do…
Now for the insides of these two cards. Remember there are so many stamps in this Merry Moose stamp set to allow you to be creative.
For card 1 inside, I first stamped the tree in Pretty Peacock ink then stamped the cute packages in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored them with Stampin Blends: Poppy Parade and Just Jade.
For card 2 inside I again stamped the tree in Pretty Peacock ink then stamped this cute raccoon on a log in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored it with Stampin Blends: Crumb Cake combo pack and the log with light Crumb Cake and ______. For an added touch I added a fun Star Element to the tree top, which the raccoon is watching with awe. The sentiment was stamped in Seaside Spray ink.
For the envelopes…
Stamp the tree in Pretty Peacock ink then the cute Santa hat in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Color the hat with Poppy Parade Stampin Blends.
For this set I stamped the moose in Crumb Cake ink then the Santa hat in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored it with the Poppy Parade Stampin Blends. I used the same DSP to cover the envelope flap.
Both cards completed in likidy split time using mostly the same colors and layouts… love how these turned out. If you have this set I encourage you to pull it out and play.
