Walter - Joy to the World



Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a great week so far! Today I have some early Christmas greetings for you from 'Walter the Moose'. It's a Magnolia stamp from this years fall collection if I'm not mistaken. He is just too adorable and I couldn't resist on getting this cutie.

I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-press it card. Of course he was colored with Copic's (E30's, E70's and W-grays) like always. The outline was done with pencils and OMS. The designer papers are from an older Basic Grey collection called 'Jovial' I love these papers. The snow under his feet is 'Shaved Ice' from Stampendous. The snow on the fence and trees is made with  Snow-Tex (DecoArt) and Aleene's True Snow. Pearl swirls are from Want to Scrap.
The dies I've used on the outside of the card are Marianne Design Creatables LR0136 Christmas Tree and LR0205 Fence and Magnolia Heart Swirl and Star Tag. You can get them all at Dutch Paper Crafts. Darlene doesn't have the Magnolias in stock but she can order them for you and you know she always has good prices! Just drop her an email and she will be happy to answer your questions and help you!










The flowers are from WOC , ribbon is from Whimsy Stamps and lace from my stash


I also decoratd the inside. Acutally all four sides of this card are decorated! Sentiment is one of the Whimsy freebies Denise sends out with orders. Dies on the inside are again the tree from Marianne Design and Snowflake and Poinsettia from Spellbinders (Darlene can also get the Spellbinders for you!)


 The back side of the card


And because this card is pretty bulky and wont fit in an envelope I made a matching box decorated with the same DP, ribbon and string as I used on the card. And as a finishing touch I've added a glittery snowflake ornament and a Christmas tree charm.


This card is available for sale in my Etsy Boutique 'Delightful Card Design'
Card has been sold to Heike F., thanks so much hun!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Hugs,
