Moose Be Another Birthday

Hi Everyone! Welcome back to another look at Doodle Pantry's February 2014 release. This time, I'm showcasing a card made with a set illustrated by Laurie Wilson and previously sold at CDS. I am so happy she has all of these sets back.


I made this card using Moose Friends. My husband is a huge fan of moose, so whenever I see moose stamps, I go a little nuts. For this card, I actually combined two of the images from the set and copied a little extra grass from the baby moose image. I used Fireworks to do this. Although it's not hard to copy a piece of an image, sometimes you have to erase things around it to use it. That's what I did here. The moose were printed on white card stock and colored with Spectrum Noir markers (bird - TB4, GB5; grass - CG4, DG3, DG4; moose - TN1, EB3, EB6, EB8). The card frame is a cut file from Silhouette. I also cut a branch from another cut file and added it to the tree to fill up the blank space above the moose. I distressed the card with close to cocoa ink from Stampin' Up! The designer paper is from another Doodle Pantry set called Handy Birdie. The sentiment is from Moose Friends. Last, I added brown candy buttons from Stampin' Up!

Don't forget the HUGE sale going on until February 8th.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  2. I love moose too...use to kiss the nose of one when I was little as we entered the moose lodge...very cool as a child I thought. You are so much better than me picking out fun silhouette files and envisioning them.
