OWH Midweek Throwdown

This week's Midweek Throwdown is to make cards using Kraft paper, plus 1 or 2 other colors.  I also got a challenge from a friend to make cards with this moose.  She sent me 2 moose made from kraft corrugated cardboard.

I hand cut the mountains from designer paper and adhered them to cloud paper and then onto kraft cardbase.  The trees were die cut from textured paper with a Sizzix die.  I added the moose in front of the trees.  These cards were lined with tan cardstock to make them sturdier and easier to write a message inside.  I didn't use a sentiment.  That makes them more versatile.


  1. Hello, my friend.....all your cards are great....recycling tea!!....cutting out mountains.....hard on the hands but so good looking.....that craft card moose/deer is great looking too. Take care.

  2. The corrugated moose are great Velda! Smart too that you left them sentiment free since these could easily be used for so many occasions. Nice job putting these cut outs to work!

  3. I love your corrugated moose Velda, this is a great card!

    Thanks for playing in our Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge!

  4. I also am loving that corrugated moose! The texture just "pops" and makes you want to feel it! Whatever paper that is you used for the mountains is perfect~~~love the look of it.
