White Christmoose

My card today was inspired by dreams of a winter wonderland… not something I’ve had at Christmas since moving south! I love this Merry Moose die by Tim Holtz and decided to start by cutting him from white watercolor card stock. I had plenty of ideas for this dude, but keeping it white (mostly) was the hard part! Hopefully you like what I ended up with!

Merry Christmoose/ White Christmas card

Using white on white can be a bit tricky, so I wanted to play with textures. I combined the roughness of the moose die with some smooth pearlescent white cardstock as my base. I layered another piece of the same cardstock over it. This one has some snowflakes stamped in pale blue and the addition of Nuvo Glimmer Paste stenciled over Simon Hurley’s Backsplash stencil. Such a pretty combo!

I created a bit of a scene on my card by adding the layers of trees by Memory Box & Poppy Stamps. The card needed something else, so I cut an ornament from Tim Holtz’s Christmas Circle Words die set. The top layer is from Silver Alcohol Ink card stock and the base is a piece I had inked up with Distress Oxide Sprays. I had this little die cut branch sitting on my desk as the perfect spot to hang the ornament!

Next on the hop…

Time to hop along over to see what White Christmas inspiration you’ll find from our team! Next up is Nancy E, who is taking a break from DT work right now, but still is joining us and has a great card to share! Here’s the full list- happy hopping!
