Hardwood - Walk in the Wild - Stampin' Up!

When the new Hardwood background stamp came out in the new Celebrate the everyday (available January 3 - June 1, 2014) catalogue I knew I would get it right away.  I think it pairs well with the Walk in the Wild stamp set.  We live in northwestern Ontario and moose are a common sight.  Any outdoorsy image would be perfect…such as the Horse Frontier horse image!  But I don't have that one, so a moose it is!

Credits:  This card is a CASE of one by Glenda Calkins.  She used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set on an A2 card.  So LOVELY!  

Masculine cards are not the easiest to design which is why I jumped on Glenda's idea for today's card.  Seems I can't resist the temptation to feminize it with the little bow I made with one of the strands of the burlap ribbon.

The moose was heat embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder.

Hope your New Year is starting off on a creative note!  Happy Stamping!
