Merry ChristMoose

The Card Concept blog is challenging us to make rustic holiday cards. I think a moose says country and rustic. Here is my clean and layered rustic card cased from one found on Pintrest

I used SU Real Red for the card base and added a strip of Old Olive. Then ran some Kraft paper through the corrugated roller. The tree is an old SU die cut. After cutting it I put it through a Sixxiz E/F to add some texture. The moose is an SU retired punch done with a scrap of red/green plaid. Adding more rustic is the raffia tied around the Kraft paper. The tag and sentiment are also SU

This is the inspiration photo from The Card Concept

I used the colors and achieved the rustic. But the horses in the picture got changed to a moose.

Also entering at Cardz 4 Guyz with the prompt to use gingham, checks, or plaid. My plaid is on the moose.


  1. You nailed the "rustic" concept, Donna. I love your card, especially that plaid moose. So glad you used your paper crimper for this card. It reminded me that I should use mine on a card soon, too!

  2. Love your plaid moose!! And the addition of texture to your card is fantastic!! Thanks for playing along with our "gingham, checks, or plaids" challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz!!

  3. I love the patterns and textures you used - with the moose and the tree it is wonderfully "rustic"! Thank you for playing along with us at The Card Concept.

  4. This is fun. I love the moose. Thanks for joining us at Cardz4guyz. Love Dawn x
