Happy Movember!

Are you familiar with the Movember Foundation? They promote Men's Health, and every November they fund-raise by having volunteers grow their mustache! Well, they ask the men to grow their mustaches...women can participate as well. Because I support Women's Health organizations, I'm happy to help out my brothers obtain the same kind of specialized care.

This year, a H.S. friend has set up a group with some of her girlfriends, and her photo on their Movember page inspired this card:

The notch swing card was designed in Sure Cut A Lot (SCAL) and cut with my Silhouette electronic die-cutting machine. All of my Notch Swing Cards are archived here

If you'd like to try it yourself, this card design is now available for purchase as SVG files in my Etsy Shop.

The Mustache Silhouette SVG is from BeaOriginal, and I used foam tape to adhere it to the polka-dot-embossed paper (Jo-Ann's) . The opposite side of the central swing piece was heat-embossed with a stamp from TPC Studio's Retro Technology set. The ribbon is from American Crafts, the flowers are Prima, the mini brass brad is from Burlin & Co., the white cardstock is from Recollections Metallics line, and the whimsical DP is by .

Be sure to check out my friend's Movember group, the Edgar Allen Mos. You will will a big kick out of my color inspiration!
