Create this simple but fun Moose Card using your cutting machine and card stock for someone this holiday season. I love the simplicity of this card with the plaid background.
The Moose Card can be given to someone for a holiday, a birthday and even Father’s Day.
You can add any wording to the greeting square on the front of the card.
Homemade cards are always great to send to someone during the holiday season and throughout the year.

I used the BFC Flannel Shirt font in Design Space for the card I created.

The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the cream Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
