It's the Moose Wonderful Time of the Year ((#christmasinjuly2017))

Summer is a wonderful time of the year but then again so is Christmas so I am doing a Christmas in July series. My goal is to make at least 20 cards this month but I am not going to stress over the goal. The point is to get a jump start on my Christmas cards while enjoying the process. See below on how to participate too.

Today's card represents my first Christmas card of 2017. After stamping the moose and two trees from the Reverse Confetti Merry Christmoose stamp set I cut them out with the matching dies and colored with Copic markers. I cut a circle frame by nesting together two dies from the Lil Inker Designs Stitched Mat Circles. After stamping the bird image from the Hero Arts Winter Time Fun set it was cut out with the matching die and colored with Copics. I stamped the snowflakes from the same Merry Christmoose set inside the frame using pool party ink and more on the card front. After stamping the sentiment with vermillion ink I attached the images using foam tape. A few enamel dots finished it up.

Products: Reverse Confetti stamps and dies, Hero Arts stamp and die, PTI and SU cs, Doodlebug enamel dots, SU, MFT and Ranger Archival ink
Copics: Moose-W00, E81, R01, W1, W2, W5; Trees-G000, G000, G02

I am submitting this for this week's Merry Monday #254 challenge.
