Mr. Moose

I have three boys (well four, if you count my husband) and I always find it hard to make "boy" stuff when in the craft room.  I always want to grab the glitter and pretty paper.  Well this time I grabbed the awesome paper stack of "real" pictures.  I fell in love with the birch bark look but just couldn't get things right.  I had the cardstock, dsp, and the desire to create a manly card.

Well, then I saw Mr. Moose!  I knew he was my guy.  Inked in VersaMark I stamped him and heat embossed in black (might have a little dazzling diamonds in it but not too much).

And look how lovely he looks!  The Bermuda Bay cardstock makes the black look sharp.  Next it was time to find some coordinating accessories.  That wasn't very hard to do.

Some silver metal buttons and ribbon are all I needed.   Then comes assembly.  I added the Petite Pairs stamp set for the greeting and saying on the inside.

As you can see, this was a great card and extremely versatile.  Birthday, sympathy, thanks, and anything else you can think of works perfectly.  These cards were easy to make and look great!
