Pilin' On the Thanks

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Thankful / Thank You. I tried my hand at a Twist & Pop card.

The sentiment is from Doodle Pantry's "So Mustache" set. I printed it on white paper and then made a background with a mustache stamp in Antique Linen distress ink. I used another mustache from the same set (Recollections) to stamp the "brackets" around the sentiment. I added black flocking with a ZIG glue pen. 

The bottom portion of the card is decorated with strips of mustache-patterned washi tape, and an orange die-cut border.

I made the bellyband with scrap kraft paper & orange burlap ribbon. The mustache cut file is from Bea Original. I actually found it under my table LOL, it fell out of my stash box at some point. I inked it black, drew lines on it with a glue pen, and covered it with black flocking.

I was inspired by cute photos of our toddler nephews with little mustaches drawn on their cute faces. Sorry those photos aren't included online for privacy reasons, but this design calls for 4 panels on the inside, so I added photos of myself with a fake mustache (part of a Ravens football fan thing some years ago) and my husband with his natural beauty! I made this card as a thank-you to the boys' parents. Also, November is Movember, a time to raise awareness for men's health issues, so this theme seemed timely!
