Merry Christ-moose

Hi there! I hope you all had a good Christmas, different as it was for so many of us! I’m going to try to blog as many Christmas cards that I can in the next couple days, seeing as I finally have time, and most of them have made it to their recipients. When I saw this handsome guy in the latest release at Power Poppy, I knew I had to have him!! I colored up Maximo Moose, from the Forest Fellas collection, with my Copics, then cut him out to hang off the square focal piece.

I wanted to do a rustic, masculine card, as this was for my son. What better prints to use than woodgrain and buffalo plaid?!?! I layered the pieces, wrapping the printed papers with a piece of twine, before attaching the image. I spattered some white paint, to give a feeling of snow, then cut the sentiment (from the same set as the image) with a fishtail banner die. To finish this card, I attached some wooden snowflakes…perfect compliments to the rustic look!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
