The Fun of Three!

Today, I had sooooo much fun --- playing with mustaches!  I also came up with a new color combo that I really, really like:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, and Basic Gray ---
     --- perfect for this card.
The mustaches are from the cute little a la carte stamp:  Many Mustaches.  The text is from Creative Elements.  I stamped everything with VersaMark ink and embossed with black EP.  A little twist of dotted Cherry Cobbler ribbon adds a cute touch to the corner of the card.

I used a lot of punches:  Modern Label, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, and the Lace Ribbon Border Punch.
I popped up the mustaches and the punched pieces under the text with dimensionals, to create a lot of texture and interest.  My most favorite part of all (besides the adorable mustaches, of course) was adding some random diagonal lines across the black base of the card and across the white layer.  It gives a lot of sophistication to the card and was so much fun to do.  These were created with the new diagonal scoring plate that fits into our Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

These are the two sketches that inspired my work today:

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.  I'd love to hear from you!
Now, go stamp something ... and do it THREE times:)
