I am in love with Close to My Heart's newer Cricut cartridge, Artiste...and this mustache cut is just darling! I cut both the mustache and the thank you from CTMH black cardstock from the Artiste cartridge and layer that with CTMH New England Ivy cardstock that was embossed with a Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder. Because of the texture of the cardstock, it didn't emboss that well, but I was able to mask the flaws by lightly dabbing some White Daisy ink on the raised images to give it a distressed look. I cut the piece of wood veneer with Spellbinders dies because it was apparently to thick for my Cricut (I need deeper blades), but I like how it turned out...hopefully my mother-in-law will get a kick out of it too :)
Thanks for stopping in!
