Moose Birthday Card by Karen

Hello it’s Karen here again and thank you for stopping by! I’ve got a simple, one layer, masculine birthday card to share with you today. 

I love this Moose Love stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs.  The expression on that moose is just priceless! 

I started this card by stamping the moose in a copic friendly ink in roughly the center of my card.  I flicked the grasses on with copic markers (listed below), and just tried to leave a few areas around the moose’s legs to fill in later. I used quite a few shades of yellow-green to add some variation to the grass.  Next, I coloured in the moose and lightly flicked some lighter brown shades down into the grass to help give the image that he was standing in the grass.  I then added some more flicks up around his legs in the grassy colours to finish colouring him in.  I added a few red dots around the grass to look like wildflowers, and used a copic multiliner pen to draw in the fly.  After masking off the moose, I stencilled in the cloudy sky using the Cloud Edger stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. Finally, I stamped and clear heat embossed the sentiment which is in the Moose Love stamp set, before adhering my card front to a card base.  This was a super quick and simple card to make and I think it’s great for a masculine card, so bonus!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do hope you’re having a great day! 

Copic markers used:

Moose: E79, E59, E57, E53, E51, E33, R20, R00

Grasses: YG97, YG95, YG63, YG00, R29, R24

To create this card I started with a white cardstock base which I masked off an oval shape and inked up using Distress oxide ink Prize ribbon. I then removed the mask and stamped a bunch of the flower images!
