Merry Christmas--PP272

November 22, 2015

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  The lovely, Laurie is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous sketch for us to use.  We can't wait to see what you create.

I was in a hurry to make a card before I left for Indiana.  My Mom was going to have a heart procedure and my mind was else where.  After I finished my card, I realized that I put my sentiment in the wrong place.  I apologize for that.  I just didn't have time to make another card. 

My base card is white.  (5 1/2 X 4 1/4).  The next layer is a piece of the Doddlebug Designs SugarPlum Collections.  The candy layer is from the same paper pack and cut with the Simon Says Stamps Rectangle stitched dies.  I used a strip of Garden Green card stock and cut a banner.  I embossed it with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.  I cut a small rectangle in a striped paper from the SugarPlum paper pack using the stitched rectangle dies.  

The Lawn Fawn Winter Gifts Tags stamp set and Tag You're It dies were used to make the tag.  I heat embossed the sentiment in Zing Rouge embossing powder.  I also cut a Garden Green tag to use under the stamped tag.  I added two Jingle Bells and red and white Baker's Twine for fun.  I stamped the cute moose from My Favorite Things-BB Merry ChristMoose in Momento Rich Cocoa ink.  I colored him with a variety of Copic Markers.  My Favorite Things-BB Christmoose Dies were used to cut the moose out.  I adhered him with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added Wink of Stella on the moose for added shine.  A few red enamel dots were added for fun.

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!

  1. This is adorable, Claire! I love that moose, and the way you arranged your sentiment!!

  2. That is too cute Claire! Love your little moose with his cocoa and your background paper is perfect! :)

  3. Hi Claire! Your card is so sweet. I adore that cute moose, and the patterned paper background.I love the colors and tiny snowflakes and candy in it! The sentiment looks perfect right where it is!

  4. Well - I think it is ADORABLE and we are very flexible at The Paper Players - don't you think?! :) As long as we are being creative and having fun! I hope all went well with your Mom!! Hugs!

  5. What an adorable moose, Claire ... love the sentiment on the double tags ... especially with that brilliant bow and fabulous jingle bells! Anita :)

  6. Awww, he's a sweet little fella! Love the cute candy paper and your layered tags. They DO make a great place for the sentiment ~ haha!!

  7. Claire this card is just adorable! I love the funny moose, and the layered tag with the jingle bells! So festive!

  8. Oh my gosh, he is so the papers you used, and the coloring is awesome! I think I need some hot chocolate right now!

  9. Sketches are all about the interpretation - I'm sure Laurie would agree the positioning of the sentiment is suggested rather than a 'must do' Claire :-) Besides, it is perfect with that adorable little moose - I just love his sweater and hat! A fab way to incorporate a busy patterned paper - and jingle bells too!!!
