Make the Moose Out of Life with Newton’s Nook Designs

Have you seen last week’s November release by Newton’s Nook Designs?  Did you take advantage of the Black Friday sales?  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  Since hubby and I are currently in Abu Dhabi, we didn’t get to roast our own turkey which made me a bit sad.  However, the most important thing is that we’re together and that’s all that matters!

For my project today, I am showcasing the Moose Mountain stamp set and coordinating dies with the Forest Scene Builder dies and the sky borders die.

I stamped my image on Neenah solar white card stock and colored him in with my Copic markers.  I used the coordinating die to cut the image.  I used the birch tree from the Forest Scene builder dies and the sky border dies to die cut my trees and the clouds.  I also cut an A2-size card base, and trimmed the front flap so that I can layer my clouds and snowbanks with vellum.   I wanted the patterned paper inside to show through but not overwhelm my design.

To finish my design I adhered the image on my foreground and also added some berries.  Here’s what it looks like:


This is an old card design of mine but I keep going back to this because it is such a great design.  When you open the card, you can see through what’s inside.


I really love how this card turned out!  Here’s another look:


I hope you like my project today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Happy crafting!
