SF 2020 - November - Happy Holidays - Blog Hop


Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration!
 It is a Happy Holidays kind of month!  
 So I wanted to just have a little fun this month.  Was working on split shape cards and had some Jolly Ranchers and the Trimming the Town DSP sitting on my desk when I noticed similar colors.  So I went with it - grabbed my Merry Moose set and coordinating punch and came up with this fun ensemble.
 The card uses that split shape technique with our stitched circles in Misty Moonlight, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Whisper White.   The colors were just bright and kind of crazy - so I thought, why not add a green moose - right!?!
And I liked it!  So then I had to do something with those matching Jolly Rancher candies, and our 3x3" acetate boxes did the trick.  Filled up that little box and put a strip of Whisper White around it vertically to form a band.
Then attached some layers of matching colors to secure it.
Added some circles and a strip of DSP with a Holiday sentiment; and of course another green moose!  Who could resist that - but I'm hoping those circles don't look too much like a target!  I like my moose alive.
I hope you liked my Holiday projects and that maybe they brought a smile to your face.

I haven't seen that technique. Love it! I have a moose head hanging in my living room, but I still haven't bought that stamp set. It's on my wish list!
