Moose Christmas card Nos. 48 and 49

Good morning everyone, It's feeling a tad Autumnal this morning and I am loving it. I hope all is well in your world, hugs.

I have two cards to share with you today both featuring a digi image merged with one of my photographs. I do so enjoy making this kind of card because it combines my two favourite pastimes, cardmaking and photography :o)

Unfortunately I hade to attache the greeting to cover up the fact I had stamped it upside down straight onto the card LOL.
Both photographs are ones I took in 2009 at Elvaston Castle Country Park.
I opened the pics up in Paint Shop Pro and then added the Moose digi from Karen's Doodles.
I merge them then printed onto white linen card from Papermill Direct.
Coloured with Copics and Sakura pens.
Base card is the same linen card folded and cut to 7x5.
Gold mat is textured card from ?
Red mat is Papermania textured card.
Un-named sentiments stampd on and a smidgin' of Glamour Dust added and Bob's yer Uncle, job done :o)

These look great Jackie, the Moose in the forground is such a clever idea against the wonderfully snowy backdrops.

Did I say Moose in the background ? If so I of course meant the foreground.

I never would have notice if you hadn't mentioned it about the first card. Love Love Love. You have me really inspired to do something fun and different like this.

What a great idea to add the digi on top of the photo - NEVER would have thought of doing that - and I really love how it looks. Oh, I have trouble with stamping sentiments - sentiments don't seem to like me very much LOL! Always seem to stamp them a bit crooked or it won't stamp cleanly - esp. when it's on the card inside.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful artwork with us Jackie - I am always so inspired by everything that I see :-)
