We "Mustache" You to Join!

This week our challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is MUSTACHES!!!  It's one of the latest trends going on right now and we decided it would be fun to challenge ourselves (and YOU) to see what we could come up with.

Here are my cards:

I cut the mustache using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge.  You can find the image on page 67 of the booklet.  I cut it at 1" to coordinate with our Perfect Fit - Dad stamp set.  They were stamped with Black ink.

For the first card, I used black cardstock for the A2 size card base and then cut a piece of Ruby cardstock for the first layer.  For the second card, I used paper from our For Always paper pack as well as Black and Ruby cardstock.  The sentiment "YOU'RE AMAZING" is a sentiment from one of the stamp sets that comes with the Artiste cartridge and was stamped with Ruby ink..  The shaped mats that I layered also were cut using the Artiste and can be found on page 66.

They were cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" and 2 1/2" x 3 3/4".
