I created a piece of mottled gray cardstock using the Hickory Smoke Distress Ink pad to use with the Aspen Forest frame die. I was going for more of a white birch tree look and I was very satisfied with the results.
The adorable moose is really easy to assemble. You cut the different pieces in the colors of your choice and then glue them together. Easy peasy. I went over the eyes, ear and mouth lines with a thin black marker to make them stand out a bit more.
I cut the sentiment twice and stacked it for a bit of extra thickness and dimension.
I adhered the grass strip to the bottom and tucked two legs behind and left two on top for a little more of a feeling of depth in the scene.

I was going for a white birch tree look for the trees in the Aspen Forest A2 Frame die, so I created some paper using my hickory smoke Distress Ink pad for the trees. The background hills were just fussy cut curved pieces of white cardstock that I edged with some light blue ink. I created the road with a strip of grey cardstock.
I cut the car and tree with metallic blue cardstock and some green Distress Ink paper I had left from another project and I also cut some details out in red, black, silver and yellow paper and pieced them in to the appropriate area. Season’s Greetings was stamped below on the white cardstock.
I added a layer of red cardstock leaving a small border and then added white mulberry paper beneath that before adhering to my card base.

My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The center of the bow is topped off with a pretty 12mm Silver Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.
