Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek #5!

I was on the fence about the new stamp set Jolly Friends from the upcoming Holiday Catalog, but once I spied the moose image, I had to have it! Living in Maine, it is quite common to spy a huge moose in our travels. I've been filling in full-time at our local University for someone that had knee surgery (my old job) and a few days ago, I spied one on my way to work. He was in a field to my right, casually working his way towards the main road. It is also common that these animals are the cause of very serious accidents, sometimes deadly. Their fur is so dark that it blends in with night time darkness and you don't see them until it's too late.

So I started out with Tip Top Taupe Cardstock and repeatedly stamped the moose image using Tip Top Taupe Ink over the background. I then stamped one more moose on Whisper White Cardstock, hand-cut him and place him over a moose on my card base using Stampin' Dimensionals:

Next I stamped the hat in Real Red Ink on Whisper White Cardstock and the brim of the hat on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock using Pear Pizzazz Ink. The Jolly Hat Builder Punch made it easy to cut both pieces out and glue them to my moose. Did yo notice the cute bling at the tip of my hat? I used Glue Dots to glue the Mini Jingle Bell in place:

For the sentiment, I stamped the Merry Christmas in Pear Pizzazz Ink on Whisper White Cardstock from the Greetings From Santa stamp set and glued the layer to the bottom of my card base. I added some Cherry Cobbler Metallic Thread above the sentiment to add color!
