Ho HoHo Santa's Mustache Christmas Card for Colour Me...!

by Joanne James5. November 2014 10:00

It's Wednesday and time for this week's challenge over at Colour Me...! where we have a monochromatic palette for you to work with this week:

I decided to go with something CAS and festive with this week's feature colour of Real Red - here's my card:

I used Real Read as my card base, then used some of the red chevron pattern paper from the Brights DSP stack down the centre of my card, which I then overlaid with another panel of Real Red, mounted on dimensionals. I cut a white Santa mustache using the Mustache Framelit and my Big Shot and adhered this using dimensionals and stamped my 'Ho, ho, ho!' sentiment from the 'Good Greetings' Stamp set in Versamark and heat embossed in White embossing powder to finish. Simple, yet effective, I think - I am surprised at just how much I love my Mustache framelit!

So what do you think? Feel free to leave a comment on today's card, before hopping over to check out the amazing cards by the rest of the Colour Me...! team:

And our talented guest designer for November - Anita Bowden
We look forward to seeing your creative creations - will you go festive or choose something completely different? 
I have another busy day today, with a trip to the hairdressers and Parent's Evening at school amongst other things. Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Hi Joanna, I have to say that this is the simplest use of the moustache framelit I've seen but it's so effective.  What a great idea!
