Happy Days! This card was chosen as a
SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS FAVORITE OF
WEEK ENDING - DECEMBER 29, 2013
Two of my husband's brothers celebrate their birthdays on the same day...January 5th! I had been wanting to make a masculine card featuring a moustache, and as brother, Joe, has had a moustache regularly for going on ten or more years, his birthday was the perfect excuse! I had seen several cards over the last few years featuring Stampin' Up's Mocha Morning designer paper using postage stamp squares (the inchie style) and loved the look of it. I wanted a larger card (big surprise) than an A2 size that is usually used by most SU designers. I also like more layering than is typically used with most inchie cards, so came up with the idea of combining inchies and banners together. Here is the result of inchies, banners, and Mr. Moustache! I hope Joe enjoys his card.
Below is the inside of the Mr. Moustache card showing the design to coordinate with the style of the card.
