Jolly Friends

ccmc433Happy Thursday!  Oh my…say it ain’t so.  NEXT WEEK IS THANKSGIVING!  Can you believe it?  I know I can’t.  The best part about that…then school will be ALMOST OVER for this term and then 3 whole weeks off! COOL!

Okay…I LOVE this week’s sketch challenge.  No…I mean it…I LOVE this sketch!  I’m going to need to make this a ‘go to’ sketch when I need a fast card…it really is so easy to use!

Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Real Red – 4 x 5 1/4, run through the Cable Embossing Folder and add to the card front
  • Crumb Cake/Multicolor print (Candy Cane dsp) – 4 x 1 1/2, cut into a banner and add to the card front
  • Whisper White – 2 3/4 x 3 1/2, add print – 7/8 x 2 3/4 to the bottom and a strip of Silver Glimmer 1/8 x 2 3/4, then stamp greeting using Real Red and ‘snow flakes’ using Crumb Cake.  Add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp moose in Momento Black on Crumb Cake, cut out, sponge some Crumb Cake around the edges.
  • Stamp striped hat in Real Red and punch out.  Stamp the trim and pom pom using Momento Black on Whisper White, punch out, layer onto hat and then add to Moose.  Stamp scarf in Real Red, cut out, add to moose.  Add moose to card front.

  1. Mary, Love this Christmas card. Have used this stamp set, paper and punch for so many cards and projects. Maureen

  2. What a fun and whimsical card Mary! I especially like the nice touch of sponging a little on the moose. Will have to give it a try as it makes him look more life-like! Great job this week!

  3. Ha ha what a cutie. Love the moose – he looks quizzical with that hat on. How funny! Great card!

  4. I love this jolly Christ-moose! He looks so cozy with his stocking cap nestled between his horns and it ties in so nicely with the cable knit sweater background!
