Dad & Retrosketches #56

Heevnin me luvvies!
Hope you all had a fab weekend! I was busy finishing off a commission for Crafts Beautiful, so I didn't get to spend much time in the garden, but it was lovely sitting in my craft room with the window wide open, listening to the birdies :o)
In this post I'd like to show you the card I did for Simon's dad. He doesn't have a tache, but I love taches and I refuse to do an old fuddy duddy card. So here it is....

What you need...

Stamps: He Said Clear Stamps - Teresa Collins
Patterned paper: Quotes 12 x 12; Mustache 12 x 12 He Said She Said - Teresa Collins
Dies: Mustaches -  QuicKutz Lifestyle Crafts; Framelits Circles - Sizzix
Punch: corner rounder
Card stock: dark brown, white 
Ink pad: Wheat - VersaMagic
Alphabet stickers: dark brown
Hemp cord: cream, tan
Buttons: dark brown, blue, tan

What you do...

Round the bottom right corner of a 13cm x 15cm top fold blank. Attach a strip of the Mustache paper down the left side. Cut a banner in circles paper from the reverse side of the Quotes sheet. Attach to the top left with a dark brown button tied with tan hemp.

Stamp the speech mark and lines onto white card in wheat ink. Die cut into a circle and mount onto a larger one cut from the circles paper. Die cut a mustache in brown card and mount onto the circles. Adhere to the lower right of the blank. Finish with blue and tan buttons tied with cream hemp and letters to spell 'Dad'.

Cool eh??? I used the Retrosketches #56 sketch for the layout.

You can find this layout and many more at

This blog is full of inspiration and ideas and some fantastic works of creativity. It's brill if you are stuck on a layout for your card. Don't forget, you can also adapt it slightly to suit.

Well, I'll go for now. I'll be back soon with the card I did for my dad. Enjoy your evening. Toodle-pip! xxx
