I was talking with my friend Lena the other day and she reminded me she had this Tim Holtz Moustache set. I just had to borrow it so I could make a card for tonight's Waltzing Mouse PJ Party, because I knew how well it would go with the Waltzing Mouse Stamps set My Kind of Guy.
I know what you're thinking - is that moustache straight? Well that's because it's possible to twiddle it. There's a category in this month's PJ Party called "Surprise Him", and I thought what's the point in having such an oversized moustache if you can't play with it !!!
There were a few design problems to overcome but this was how I made my twiddling moustache. Firstly I cut the moustache from black chipboard (this was actually some IKEA packing) and two from normal black card. I punched a large hole in the middle of the chipboard moustache with my cropodile (large enough for the head of a brad to sit in) and and a small hole in the backing one, which I ended up trimming down. The last mo was glued onto the top so you couldn't see the hole.

After assembling the Moustache on a brad I liberally coated it twice with versa mark and black embossing powder. Here is the completed card.
