Merry ChristMOOSE Mini Slimline Card

The design for this mini slimline card came from Call Me Craft Al's September 2022 Sheet Load of Cards design. She includes the dimensions if you want to make a single card rather than a full sheet load, which was handy for me this time as I just wanted to make a single card. 

I started by making a top-fold card base using kraft card stock that's 3.25X4.25. I embossed a piece of green card stock using a Richard Gary Lumberjack Days EF called "Knitted Pattern." I followed Crafy Al's design for the sizing of the card stock pieces on the front of the card and then used my Silhouette Cameo to do a print and cut of the adorable Polkadoodles "Elvis Wesley Christmas Moose Hot Chocolate" digi (pre-colored version). Isn't he darling?! I used a Spellbinders oval die to die cut the frame around him and another Spellbinders die for the holly. I die cut two holly die cuts: one in green and one in burgundy using the same papers I had used for the other elements of the card. I cut the burgundy berries off the leaves and adhered them to the green leaves using foam tape to make them pop up a little. 

For the sentiment, I used my Silhouette Design Studio software to design the sentiment and then did a print and cut of it.
