Good Morning Everyone, at least it is morning here in the Heartland, though it may not be where you live. I forget sometimes that this platform is global and anyone, anywhere might see it. So, I hope it is a good day, whatever time of day you see this.
I began with a card base in Sahara Sand, with a front cut the same size as the base from a piece of the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper. Over this I adhered, with Liquid Glue, a panel of Mossy Meadow dry embossed with the Evergreen Forest Embossing folder.
The tree on the left is actually 2 die cuts, from the Pine Woods dies, glued one on top of the other to provide dimension. It is adhered to the front with Liquid Glue.
I used the smallest Stitched Rectangle die to cut the sentiment panel which I had stamped in Early Espresso. The stamp is found in the Dragonfly Garden stamp set, which will be available to everyone in the January-June Mini Catalog. I didn’t use the complete stamp, only the words Thank You. I think this font looks good with the moose and trees. To do this, I used my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to ‘paint’ the words, then huffed on them to re-moisten and stamped them on Sahara Sand. Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to affix it to the card front.
The moose is punched from Soft Suede using the punch in the Merry Moose Bundle. It is also attached to the front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I was going to use Early Espresso but decided it was too dark.
On the inside the wood grain paper from Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper is cut similarly to the Mossy Meadow on the front and Liquid Glued into the card base. This provided a mat for the Sahara Sand liner which is stamped with the moose, tree and stars from the Merry Moose Bundle using Early Espresso and Mossy Meadow. Using a Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker, I added some ‘ground’ beneath the moose. I just didn’t want him walking on air! Liquid Glue again was the adhesive used to adhere the liner to the inside of the card. I chose to not add a sentiment to leave room for a personal note.
The envelope flap was finished with another piece of the wood grain Poinsettia Place DSP, while the front has a solid moose in Early Espresso.
I think this is a fitting card for a man who did a good turn that was very much appreciated. It was a quick and easy card to do. I love the Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder and have other cards in mind that will feature it as well. Stay tuned!
