A Moose and a Wedding...

What a fun topic this is!! All sorts of things come to mind, right? But, alas, it's just two cards I've made featuring a moose for Christmas and a wedding card! Yes, I know I said I was Christmas carded out, but the Moose had to be used! So let's see what I've created!

I think this card is one of my prettiest yet! Of course, the image I had to work with helped a lot! This beautiful rose is another digistamp by Fred, She Said. As I said yesterday, I recently discovered her drawings and fell in love with them. I immediately ordered a bunch and they are so easy to color! Just print and go! For the roses, she has them arranged so that they are singly or like my card above! I printed them on Whisper White cardstock, then rounded the corners with a corner rounder punch.

As soon as I saw the roses in this frame setting, I knew it had to be for a wedding card! I wanted white roses, so I used my lightest blue Copic marker to "enhance" the white, and used a mixtures of greens for the greenery. Of course, Seashell glitter had to be added with a glue pen to the roses for a beautiful sparkle! Once my roses were finished, I cut out two hearts with my Nestabilities, then dusted a bit of Memento Summer Sky on my heart with the sentiment (Studio G) which was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added a sparkly peel off sticker around the hearts where they connected, pretty pearls, and finished the card off with a satin/organdy gold and white ribbon and bow. Card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches

This Christmas Moose is a delightful drawing by Nina May over at "There's Magic in the Air" and it's such a perfect image for a holiday card! This card also fits her "Magical Monday Sketch" which is below! I printed the digistamp on Whisper White cardstock then colored with Copic markers and cut him out with the long rectangles Nestabilities. I mounted my designer paper (Die Cuts with a View) onto an olive green card, then added sparkly peel off stickers to cover the seams of my papers. I stamped my sentiment (Studio G) on a small scrap of matching olive cardstock and tucked it behind my image piece. I added a satin ribbon, rhinestone flowers, and photo corners with brads to fit the sketch. Lastly, I just had to add the red rhinestone for his nose! Card size: 5 3/4 x 4 3/4
