Mustache Thank You Card

Mustache Thank You Card

Handmade Mustache Card

Here is a great masculine card that any man would be excited to get. I used the fit to length button to get all this mustaches to look the same size. I cut all three mustaches at 3″ fit to length. I cut them all in black and then shadowed them in Bazzill bitter chocolate. For the designer paper, I choose a piece of Argyle Card stock from Me and My Big Idea Renee Argyle Green. I thought this design looked circus-esq and fit well with the mustaches. Layered the designer paper onto a piece of dark red paper and then attached cooper eyelets in each corner. I adhered all the mustaches down. Then I stamped Thank You on a little banner I cut out. I attached the banner with a brad. For the last step, I adhered the layers to a blue A2 card. Hope you like this playful masculine card.

I have been wanting the Billionaire Cartridge for a long time. I’ve been holding out since it was mostly a font cartridge, and cost so much. At my Walmart, the price went to $20, so a snatched this cartridge up. I love the mustaches, tops hats, monocle, and Victrola. My husband said I had to make an owl card with a monocle, and here he is.  I cut the owl from Create a Critter at 3.” I used three different shades of blue for owl. I used the darkest color for the base, the lightest color for the middle layer, and the middle color for the top layer. The monocle and hat both were cut out from the Billionare Cartridge at 2.” For the first layer, I used dark red that I inked up with Victoria Velvet. Then I layered on a piece of designer paper at an angle. The ribbon is white ribbon that I inked up with tea dye and vintage photo, and then taped it to the card. After adhering my owl, I tied a bow with my left over ribbon. The card base was adhered to a kraft card base that I inked up some distress ink in tea dye and vintage photo. In the inside of the card I wrote, “Hello Dear Friend.” Hope you like this new card, and it inspires you to use your cartridges together to make one image.

DCWV The Mod-Retro Stack found at Marshalls for $5.99


I love watching haul videos on youtube, to see what supplies and deals other crafters are getting. I’ve seen some great deals on designer paper stacks from Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Ross in some haul videos. I didn’t immediately go out and check, because I assumed these people were just lucky. This weekend while I was out, I decided to check out the TJ Maxx for designer card stock. Much to my surprise, there were a couple different designer card stock options. I found this super cute Me and My Big Idea Renee Argyle Green stack. It was only $6.99, and I love this paper stack. It has a vintage feel, beautiful flourishes, foil accents, and even some pages with flocking. After my success at the TJ Maxx, I decided to check out the Marshalls down the street from my house that I’ve never been to. The selection there was much better, and i picked up a couple super cute cheap items. My first find was the DCWV The Mod-Retro stack for $5.99, which is adorable. It has retro images, lots of grids, beautiful flowers, and an awesome color palette. Among all the paper stacks, I found one more loved. Also by DCWV, this stack is called Street Lace. It features a lot of black lace like images on bright colors with foil and glitter accents. Then I found a super cute cupcake punch by ek success. The punches were only $2.99 for both, and I already made a cute ice cream cone card with the top to the cupcake. I hope you like seeing my finds. Check your local Mashalls, TJ Maxx, or Ross for great deals on paper crafting supplies.
