Mustache Knows Best

Here's a shaker card using a set of Mustache stamps by husband picked out for me:



I stamped the 'stache in rows, using different colors and various amounts
of blue inks to create a "wavy" pattern. I've got to do this again! I used the same stamp to create a border on the inside. I cut out another and covered it with blue Sparkly Fluff (top right corner). I hand-cut the frame from a Pebbles DP, cut the bottom with the Die-namics Notebook Edge die by MFT, and heat-embossed the sentiment (Fiskars) in shiny blue (Stampendous).

I couldn't resist making this a shaker card. I enclosed it with some scrap plastic (from old packaging), and mounted it with a double layer of 3M foam tape onto a DP by Little Yellow Bicycle. It's filled with glass microbeads (Martha Stewart). I finished the card with some Denim baker's twine from The Twinery (bought at CYDI?).

It certainly has character, like the best dads I know!
