Moose Be Your Day


This card is very special to me because it's my husband's birthday card. He's crazy about moose and always teases me that he wants a moose head to hang on the wall. Well, this is about as close as he's going to get to that dream. The image and sentiment are from the Moose set from Doodle Pantry. As soon as I saw this set, I had to have it. It comes with a full moose as well as just the moose head. I printed the moose on white card stock and colored him with Copic markers (E33, E35, E57, E59) and cut him out. I then mounted him on the trophy board which was cut on my Silhouette Cameo. The sentiment was printed on vanilla card stock and distressed with Close to Cocoa ink from Stampin' Up! The designer paper is also from Doodle Pantry, from the Wood Pile set. I mounted everything on a vanilla card base and then added some masculine bling.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  8. Oh, love this moose card. And, also that butterfly one you had as well. Sorry I haven't commented much but have been having a leg problem and need to elevate it a lot and also hubby was in the hospital. All are on the mend now but still too many other summer activities such as garden to work with. But I sure love your work.

  10. What a marvelous, masculine card, Susan! My FIL had a moose head in his den which he bought when he lived in Alaska. After he passed, my MIL sold it -- for over $1,500 and that was 20 years ago! We all laughed about it because she hated it all the years it hung on the wall but profited from it in the end. He would have appreciated that more if she'd kept it. :-D
