TCP Sneaky Peek Week! Day 5: "The Mustache Set"


Hi there! We are on Day 5 of Sneaky Peek week at The Cat's Pajamas! When I first got my package of stamps and dies, I was the most intrigued by this set "The Mustache Set," and it was the first one I took out and used. In the past, I haven't been able to wrap my head around this mustache trend that's been going around, but when I saw these stamps, I couldn't wait to use them!! I LOVE anything "punny" and there's some really cute sentiments in this set, and I now get the versatility factor as well, this card could be for Father's Day, Dad's birthday, encouragement for anyone, so fun! 

My idea was that it would be fun, to create a mustache that could be taken out and used for photos, or just for being silly! Here's my unwilling model. can you see the pout behind that big mustache? ;) Here's a closeup on how I made this removable. A piece of foam core board was sandwiched between that front panel and the main card. See the hole where the skewer was pushed through? 

I made a faux frame, by die-cutting some card stock with the Circus Border CutUp, and adhering it behind and around the edges of the white panel that had both stamping and die-cuts on the front.

I used both the mustache CutUps set and the mustache border die on this card, too fun! 



Well, I hope you like my "fun{tache}tic" card! Make sure and check out what Alma and the Cat Pack did with these fun new goodies! :)

big hugs! Noelle
