Merry Moosemas!

This is officially my first Christmas card I have made for this year .... one down ??? to go haha!

Ok some of you are probably thinking how can this be your first Christmas card cause we saw your Thomas Kinkade one you made on Saturday ... simple!!!!!! I made this card BEFORE I made the other card/cards ... I have since made more cards similar to the one I posted on Saturday. This card however was made last Wednesday when the SC came out on SCS .... it was made as a sample for the Pajama party that was held on the Hanna Stamps member forums f SCS last Friday.

After doing the SCS sketch challenge from last week I remembered I had this little scene all stamped out waiting to be made into a card and decided that it would work perfectly with that sketch so set to work making my card.

I used the snowflakes cuttlebug embossing folder to add texture to the red base card. The snowflakes were die cut using a cuttlebug snowflake die, using white glitter card I found at a recent papercrafts show. The sentiment is from the new "words Riley would say" these are fun sentiments that work well with all the Riley Moose images.

Recipe:
Stamps: Tree Riley, Snowman Riley & Words Riley Would Say - Hanna Stamps
Paper: White; Black; Real Red, Tempting Turquoise & Garden Green - SU
Other: Black Ink; Red Grosgrain Ribbon; Red Brads; Snowflake Die; Snowflake Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Clear Glitter Glue; Foam Tape

I recently discovered your blog, and I love it. The inspiration is never-ending. However, my husband doesn't like it very much...since I have discovered many, many more stamps through your blog! Pink Cat Studio...Gina K.....Hanna Stamps...and all the rest! :)

Oh, and I absolutely LOVE ALL the Riley cards!!! I'm getting some of those!
