Thank You Very Moose Card

This darling digi is from Polkadoodles, and I used him on another card recently that had the pun "Merry ChristMOOSE." I'm back with another pun: Thank you very MOOSE! I always need thank you cards to thank friends and family for their Christmas gifts, so I thought I'd start early and create some thank you cards before Christmas. 

I made the tree background yesterday using a tree stencil and some green glitter paste. I have discovered that I really love working with glitter paste! I let the background dry for awhile and then placed it under some heavy plates from my embossing machine to help flatten out the panel overnight. Then today I did a print and cut of Elvis Wesley Moose Christmas Hot Chocolate (I added an offset to the digi before printing and cutting it) and popped him on a Spellbinders die cut using the red snowflake paper I used to mat behind the trees. I created the sentiment using Happy Popcorn font in my Silhouette Design Studio software and did a print and cut of it. I added a mat behind it using the same red snowflake paper.
