Masculine thank you card made using the Artiste cartridge

 Hello, friends!

As promised, I have a new card that I made using Free To Be Me paper pack, Stamp of the Month, and the Artiste cartridge

I really wanted my background paper to mimic the stamp set, so I cut out some little mustaches and glued them to white cardstock to make it look like patterned paper. This isn't a go to technique for me, but it is one I do from time to time. Just keep this little trick in your box of crafting ideas when you need something a little customized.

Typically, I have a lot of trouble making masculine cards, but this one came together so quickly. I really really love this stamp set!

That is a great card, Melanie! I like the use of the stamp with the coordinating paper. It is all just too cute!!! Love the moustache theme and have used it for boy baby showers and Little Man birthdays, too.

I mustache you a question: is there anyway to get this cart as a discount w/o being a consultant? I'm part of another company that CTMH considers "competition", but I don't want to resign from that company.
