You would have to be living under a rock if you didn't know that mustaches are [still] the rage. :-) Among the younger set (like our DD), mustaches appear in unexpected places--on a squirrel, a clock, whatever! You name it and she's probably got a doo-dad, t-shirt or locker accessory with a mustache on it! My husband mumbles, "I just don't get what it is with mustaches...". Well, I don't profess to "get" it either but I do think they are cute and couldn't wait to use the oh-so-reasonably-priced Mustache Framelits die ($7.95!!) on my card today:
Isn't it cute? My husband says, "yeah, it's cute but I don't get it"--lol. I had a male co-worker in mind when making this card. His birthday is coming up and he is a HUGE Florida Gator fan. While the cool colors in the Confetti Celebration DSP I chose didn't include Gator blue, I decided to highlight Gator orange--AKA Tangelo Twist. Really loved this week's sketch from the talented gals at Freshly Made Sketches. Love how their sketches are always right in time for designing my Paper Players card!
The plain cardstock mustache looked a little...well, plain! So I stamped the line image from Gorgeous Grunge across it multiple times in Tangelo Twist and I really like the results. Almost gives it a textured look, doesn't it? You can also see, in the background, that I popped up the panel of hexagon DSP for some extra dimension.
My Six-Sided Sampler stamp set hadn't seen any ink in a long time so I brought it out to play off the hexagons on the DSP. This [retired] stamp from Happiest Birthday Wishes coordinated perfectly with the Hooray sentiment from the current Remember This stamp set.
I hope you will remember to pop over to The Paper Players and check out the other eye candy from the rest of the Design Team. You're sure to find loads of inspiration for masculine Clean-and-Simple cards! Maybe you'll play along with us before our challenge ends on Friday, September 26th at Noon (PST).
