Jolly Friends Merriest Moose Cards

That Moose!  He's so ding-dang cute with his winter cap!  Today's card is one that I'm featuring at my "Last Thursdays" card class tomorrow…Wednesday!  Not only will participants be able to dress up their moose, but they can also try out the brand new Stitched Shapes Framelits!   

Merriest Moose - blues with red circle 1

Background Basics—Emboss a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock with the Sparkle Texture Impressions Folder, then mount on a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Pool Party card base folded to 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  I decorated the background with two strips of patterned paper from the Designer Series Paper Stacks: 1" x 5" Emerald Envy dots from the 2016-2018 In Color Stack, and 3/4" x 4" Bermuda Bay stripes from the Brights Stack.

►►NEW Stitched Circle—I tried out the brand-new Stitched Shapes Framelits to create the Real Red circle foundation for the moose!  That faux stitching around the edge is a subtle detail, but really adds something to the overall feel of the card!

Merry MooseStamp the Jolly Friends moose image in Memento Black ink onto Crumb Cake card stock, then hand-cut with super-sharp Paper Snips.  Pop him up with with Dimensionals.

Two Cool—I created an alternate version with a little different color combo.  The card base is Whisper White and the background is embossed with the Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Instead of the striped DSP on the background, I added a strip of the Real Red 3/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon with a little Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Moose Changes—This time I created a Pool Party stitched circle foundation for my moose.  His hat and scarf are both stamped in Real Red.
