A "Moosey" Christmas

The Santa & Co Designer Paper is simply adorable.  I especially love those dressed-up moose.  Of course fussy-cutting one of them out isn't all that much fun.  But I seem to be hung-up on fussy-cutting.

I decided to make a card for the Paper Plunge Challenge.  It had to have a tag on it and so I decided to keep it simple.  My base cardstock is Naturals White and then I added a layer of Soft Suede.  My next layer is Soft Sky which I first embossed with the On Point embossing folder before attaching.

My tag is Whisper White with the trees from White Christmas stamped on it in Memento black ink.  Then I cut the top with my Scalloped Tag Topper punch before stamping the top with the banner "Merry Christmas" stamp from the same stamp set.  I used Soft Suede ink for that to compliment the Soft Suede layer as well as the brown of the moose.  I also added a bit of red to each banner just to make it stand out better.

As I said, I fussy cut the moose.  That took a while since there are so many tiny little pieces to cut around.  I used Tombo glue to attach the moose to the tag because it's one of our strongest glues.  Then I added a red ribbon to the top of the tag before attaching it to the card using Dimensionals.

For more cards with tags, check out the Paper Plunge Challenge.
