{TCPTUES210} Fan{TACHE}tic Day!

Today we have a fun sketch designed by the Lovely Leigh. Leigh is on a little stamping break, so Amy Sheffer is taking over this week as our hostess.
I used the fun new Mustache Cutup die and the coordinating The Mustache Set for the sentiment on the inside of my card.
I've seen tons of pics on Pinterest and all over the web lately of photos taken with these little stick mustaches and thought that would be a fun idea for my little boys birthday thats coming up soon! He is a little card and is always dressing up and preforming for everyone, so I know he'll like the playing with this mustache! And I made the mustache removeable from the card so he can do just that!

Here is a close-up of the rosette embellie, using the Easy Rosette Cutup and diecut number six and a wooden button tied with a fun Cherry Divine Twine bow.

And here is the card front, with the mustache stick removed! Seriously, FUN!

Alright, here is a quick step-by-step photo tutorial to show you my process. Although it really isn't rocket science;)
I used a Wilton lollipop stick that I had in my baking supplies, divine twine, double sided tape and adhesive sheets, felt, black CS and of course the Mustache die and my bigshot.

Cut a piece of black felt with the largest of the Mustaches, then cut another from a piece of black CS that has been adhered to one side of a double sided adhesive sheet (I use the Sookwang brand). Next, adhere two lengths of double sided tape up both sides of a lollipop stick. Remove the paper backing a bit at a time and wrap with the Divine Twine.

Now place the finished stick on the backside of the felt. Remove the paper backing from the adhesive sheet/CS mustache and sandwich the lollipop stick in between.

Now you can add the velcro dot (put the soft side on the mustache and the scratchy side on the cardfront). Self explanatory- who wants an actual whisker rub on their upper lip? I attached them to the mustache together and then I knew where to position the dot on the cardfront. Just lay down the mustache where you want it, and when you pull away, the scratchy side is left on the card.
Note: You will need to use a fairly strong adhesive on the portion of the card that the velcro is attached to (again, I find the sookwang tape is the strongest)

Here is the finished front again, as well as the inside.

 And here is my youngest son, Hayes, being my slightly uncooperative model;) Let's just say Baby Gap won't be calling us anytime soon with this kids posing skills! But you get the idea how fun this could be for kids (and maybe some adults alike;)!!

Alrighty...link up your sketch challenge creations to the Dancing in PJ's blog for your chance at Fame and Fortune!
