Lucky Friend St. Patrick’s Day Card

   It is time to spread the luck of the Irish with this easy to make greeting card.

   Finding a four-leaf clover is considered lucky yet they are hard to find.

    Finding a good friend is even harder and much more fortunate.

    Definitely a thought you need to share with every good friend as they are as precious as a pot of gold. They will find a four-leafed clover among the shamrocks on this card.

Foxy Peek-a-Boo Valentine’s Day Greeting Card

Update: Foxy template is available in our library.

      The front of this foxy card is hand stamped with a fun and simple heart designed to complement the Valentine’s day theme. Patterned cardstock would be another great option. The front also features a peek-a-boo heart shaped window with the word “You” visible.

     Opening the card reveals the full inside sentiment “You are a Fox!”. Under the greeting, you will find a cute little fox made from adhered shape layers. The fox design is based on hearts.



While the card was designed for Valentine’s day it is easily adapted for a birthday or any time. Check out

Simply Heart Valentine’s Day Card

     Sweet and simple Valentine’s Day card is all heart. You do not need to have a special paper punch nor an expensive cutting machine to make this greeting card. Just check out our Heart Template

     The card base was embellished with rubber stamps and then embossed. ❤️ Alternately you could use printed card stock instead of plain card stock or use stickers.
     The sentiment on the sash could be printed on a printer if you do not have a sentiment you like.
     Another heart themed stamped design finished off the inside of my card yet you can use any of the ideas suggested above for the outside.

Fun Greetings from Chris Moose

Inquiring minds want to know what Chris has to say. Don’t you?

Chris Moose wishes you a Merry Christmas in his very own special way with these two holiday greeting cards. The overall card design is the same for both cards however the change in the sentiments makes them quite different. The first card is designed to warm the heart of the recipient. A change of the eyes gives a more fun appeal as Chris peers out to make sure no one catches him peeking. See what he has to say when he catches you!

Two Chris Moose designs are available in our Library in both svg and pdf file formats.
