Shake Your Moose for Friday Mashup

It's my turn to host the challenge over at The Friday Mashup and I'm all about shaker cards and animals!

Anyone who knows me knows I love winter and I anxiously await the first snowfall here in southcentral Alaska. This time of year shaker cards are on my mind because I want snow so badly! Of course not all shaker cards are about snow, you can use them for whatever theme you want. I also love animals and so I decided to combine those 2 loves for this challenge!

For my card I took the moose image (which I love!) from Walk in the Wild and stamped it on some Whisper White. I used brown for the grass the moose is nibbling on and then took my white gel pen and streaked it with white to make it look like fresh snow. It's really hard to see in the photo though I know but trust me, its there.

To make my shaker frame I cut out a piece of Early Espresso card stock with the On Film Framelits and used a row cut from my dimensionals as the backing for the shaker. The main card base is also Early Espresso with DSP from the Trim the Tree paper stack. I love this plaid paper and I'm so glad that SU brought it back. And yes, this is going to be a Christmas card I send out this year :)

I hope you'll come by The Friday Mashup and play along with the challenge!
