SUO107 Truly Grateful to be "Out in the Woods"

Hi Stampers! 

I hope that you will visit us at SUO-Challenges to check out the rest of the Design Team projects and join in on in on the fun with your Stampin’ Up! Only creations as well as visit the CCMC site and check out all of their fantastic designs and gallery!

To create this project:
Ink the moose image from Walk in the Wild using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. 
Create a mask for the moose using a sticky note and also create a mask for the moon with the 1 ¼” Circle Punch.
Mask the moose and moon image and using a Sponge Dauber with Marina Mist Classic Ink, sponge the ink onto the sky in a horizontal pattern to mimic woodgrain.
Color the moose using Stampin’ Blendabilities- Light and Medium Crumb Cake and the grassy area with the Light and Medium Old Olive markers.
Cut the image out using the Big Shot™ with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ (also cut an oval of the same size from Early Espresso cardstock).  Hand-cut the Early Espresso oval in half horizontally and mount behind the focal image.
Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink to the edges and use the retired Color Spritzer Tool with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker to add a bit more distressing..
Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  Trim and mount onto a panel of Early Espresso cardstock, trim again and mount onto another panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, trim once more and mount onto the Early Espresso card base.
Cut the angled piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Trim the Tree DSP Paper Stack, mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and adhere this panel to the card front per the card sketch.
Ink the woodgrain background stamp from Truly Grateful using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.   Trim a piece to use as one of the vertical banners, cut the banner points by hand using the image as a guide, use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges and use a Sponge Dauber with Early Espresso Classic Ink to add a bit more distressing and definition along the edges.
Trim a piece of Early Espresso cardstock (I had a piece already embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder in my stash)- cut the banner points with the Hexagon Punch and distress the edges using the Distressing Tool. 
Adhere both banners to the card front, add the strands of Burlap Ribbon and mount the moose oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto another portion of the previously stamped woodgrain background (in the step above) and hand cut the banner points on both ends using the image as a guide.  Mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock (cutting the banner points by hand as well).
Adhere to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the retired Bronze Button with the Burlap Ribbon tied in the center to finish off the card.
