A Moosey Christmas


Today launches a brand new challenge over at the Cutie Pies Challenge Blog and our theme is ‘Cute Christmas in September’.  So if you haven’t started your Christmas cards yet this is the perfect excuse to take up that glitter and snowflake punch and get started.  Don’t forget to join in with us you have to make your cards cute, cute, cute, and with so many adorable images out there it should be easy!

We are sponsored this fortnight by Crafty Ribbons who aim to offer ribbon lovers and crafters a wide and varied range of some of the world’s best ribbons, at affordable prices. They design and manufacture their own range of ribboncraft kits, including ribbon embroidery, weaving, mitred patchwork, teddy bears, and cushions.  Crafty Ribbons are generously offering a £10 gift voucher to one lucky winner of our challenge to spend in their fabulous online store here, p&p not included.  So how could you not want to join in?!

Check out all the amazing DT inspiration from my team mates here, they will blow you away!

So what did I do?  Well I decided to use one of my Mullberry Wood stamps called ‘Giving’ (soooooo cute).  I think my two little guys are moose (is there a plural of moose?  Is it mooses or is it mice, no clue) as the antlers are too big for reindeer.  I have therefore concluded that they must be moose(s) and I coloured them with my Pro/Flexmarkers and a touch of Stickles. 

I kept my colour scheme simple by using mainly blue and white (nice and cool and Christmassy I think). My snowflakes are made from layering white card and glitter card cut using a Spellbinders Snowflake Pendant die and a Martha Stewart punch.  And my sentiment was stamped, embossed and cut using a SB Ribbon Banner.

Awwwwwwwww! Bless!

Gems, satin ribbon and an envelope charm finish the design.

And there you go, another Christmas card under my belt.  I’m feeling a bit smug now!

See ya!

Smiling always (only 20 to go)!
