Hello, and welcome to the We Create Bloggers Hop for December 2016! (Did I confuse you by having another blog hop already today- you see I’m in a few design groups, and when the first of the month falls on a Thursday, well then they will both occur on the same day). Hope you enjoy all the fun projects!
Today I wanted to share with you two fun cards featuring the adorable moose from the Jolly Friends Bundle in the Holiday Catalog. I was thinking of using this guy for my own Christmas cards this year, what do you think?
This first card is the simple version, where I was inspired by Diana Gibbs, I water-colored the moose on our awesome shimmer white paper, don’t you just love the new Emerald Envy paired with Real Red for Christmas? The greeting is from the Tin of Tags stamp set, which is adorable (and NOT just for tags at all!)
In the stepped up version, I used the new embossing powder on the wreath, it was a little tricky to get it placed strategically. I also fussy cut this moose and colored in his antlers for a different look. And the finishing touch is a real mini jingle bell, love how it looks, what do you think? (this would not go through the US mail very well, it will need a padded envelope for sure).
Are you ready to go see what Kimberley created for us? (Just click the icon below that says “Next blog”).
Thank you for visiting today, I would love to hear from you. Let me know which card you like best, and have a great day.
