Stache Tastic Christmas

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Joanne Grzelak our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Apparently today is No Beard Day .... so for our challenge this week Joanne has asked us to create masculine cards that include mustaches, but no beards.

As you can see I have created another Double Slider Surprise card for this week's challenge. I recently purchased the Lawn Fawn Thanks a Latte stamp set which contains a mustache in the stamp set, so that was the starting point for my card.

I also had a moustache background stamp which I had purchased sometime this year and waiting to be used, so I knew I also wanted to use that. 

While looking for "moustache" sentiments to use on this card, I found a sentiment from a Stampin' Up stamp set which was Christmas related .... so I decided to create a Male Coffee /Cocoa themed Christmas card.

Here is a quick video to show my card in action.

When you pull the tabs on either side of the card, it reveals two sentiment panels. The one of the right has the sentiment I found in the SU stamp set. The sentiment on the left is one I created using the "Stache Tastic" word from an old There She Goes Stamp set and parts of sentiments from a couple of Lawn Fawn stamp sets.

I layered my card onto a fold card which was stamped using the moustache background stamp which I also used on the front of the Double Slider Surprise card.

For the inside of the card I used the background stamp at the bottom portion of the card and another of the mugs which features the moustache. I created the "I Moustache (Must Ask) You Have A Very Merry Christmas), using the "I" and moustache from the There She Goes stamp set and a Lawn Fawn stamp set.
