Merry Christmoose with Jolly Friends

I think most of you know I live on Great Moose Drive on Great Moose Lake ... and this year I needed some holiday cards for my friends at the Great Moose Lake Association who work so hard to protect and enhance our lake. 

These were fun to make.  Jolly Friends has been a favorite set this season (I'm sad it's retiring... get it before it goes and away and now it's on sale along with the hat punch).

The cards are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 so I made the white fronts 3 3/4 x 5 and used the softly falling embossing folder for snow.  Then stamped and cut out the moose and put a hat on him.

I used the Labeler Alphabet set for the greeting. I've not used this set that much and it was fun to use.  I like the wonky look of the lettering (you can get it perfectly straight but I was embracing my wonky Angel self!)   The merry is from the Christmas greeting dies. 

You'll see in the ingredient photo, I have the flosser (which acts as a big easy needle to thread the twine) but I changed my mind at the end and used mini glue dots to add the jingle bells.  

I added a little sparkle on the hat brim... after all it's only Dec 19 and we've had how much snow in Maine already!? 

Love the hat punch!  So fast to punch the hat and the hat brim.  

Happy crafting, MaryKate
