Walter the Moose

Hello everyone, today I have a card to show you using a mix of new Magnolia stamps and older ones! I am entering this card into the following challenges; this week's Simon Says Challenge has a theme of animal antics, Just Magnolia & Hanglar & Stanglar Challenge 167 has a theme of pearls and swirls, Cute Card Thursday Challenge 229 has a theme of tags, and Secret Crafter Challenge 198 has a theme of gold, silver or bronze.

For my card I used Walter the Moose from the new Magnolia Turning Leaves Collection 2012 and he is coloured with distress inks. The DP is from MME and although it isn't christmas DP I think it works quite well, being red and green!! The sentiment is the post vintage merry christmas stamp from the Magnolia So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe Collection 2009 and it is stamped in memento rich cocoa ink. I used doohickey dies to cut out the tags and swirls and I added some ribbon and gold bells to the tags.

Finally, a close up of the tags. They have been distressed with vintage photo distress ink and one is stamped with Love Holly and the other with sweet snowflakes from the Magnolia Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011.

Card/Paper: Kraft and ivory card. MME - Wild Asparagus
Stamps: Magnolia - listed above
Colouring: Distress inks - vintage photo, antique linen, weathered wood, black soot, victorian velvet, broken china.
Embellishments: Bells, ribbon, twine, pearls
Tools: Trouvaille, sewing machine, doohickeys, nesties
