Stashing Through the Snow Card for MOvember

Stashing Through the Snow Card

 

For the several years now my sons have decided not to shave in the month of November.

Honestly, I’m not entirely sure why they do it but I do know that there are two (maybe more) groups who promote NOT shaving as a way to draw attention to mens health. One is Movember and the other No Shave November.

When Jen Good of 100 Directions asked me to participate in a blog hop she was planning to launch her new Rollograph stamp wheels with Clearsnap she said I could choose between a pink ribbon for an October breast cancer awareness post or mustaches for a November mens health awareness post. I knew that I wanted to create something with the mustache stamp in honor of my three sons.

 

 

Stashing Through the Snow Card

 

I had fun playing around with the mustache stamp and created a couple of fun, super simple, holiday cards for the guys on my list.

So now I’m wondering…

Do you like a guy with facial hair or no?

 

Supplies:

  • Mustache Rollergraph Stamp
  • Color Box Ink in Wicked Black
  • Color Box Pigment Brush Pad in Platinum
  • Aleene’s True Snow – Optional
  • Tape Runner
  • Snowflake min tree ornament
  • Adhesive dots
  • Card blanks – kraft paper color
  • Corrugated cardboard scrapbook paper
  • Tan cardstock
  • Printer paper

 

Directions:

1 Cut the corrugated paper to a size just slightly smaller than the card blank and adhere to the card blank. If you wish to add snow, spread it on lightly with a palette knife or the side of an unusuable gift card or credit card. Let dry.

2. Ink the mustache stamp and stamp on white cardstock. Cut the strip to the desired length.

3.  On your computer type “Stashing through the snow” and print it out on tan colored cardstock. Cut to size.

4. Adhere the white mustache stamped cardstock to the corrugated cardstock – use the tape runner on the BACK of the white cardstock and adhere to the corrugated cardstock.

5. Adhere “Stashing through the snow” to the mustache stamped cardstock

6. Cut the hanger portion off a mini tree snowflake ornament and adhere it to the face of the card with a glue dot adhesive.

    How fun is this? Great card. I like a clean shaven man myself, but I find Movember to be pretty amusing! Nice to find a fellow creative/papercrafter on NaBloPoMo! If you’d like to connect, you can find me at http://www.useitscrapbooking.com.

      Hi Kelli,
      Great to meet you. I’ve already blown NaBloPoMo as I missed yesterday. Deadlines got me. :)

    My husband has a mustache and grows the rest out anytime he’s off for a long weekend or longer …. I love it! I’m not sure I’d be into the real “Santa” type beard tho…

    Yep I like a man with facial hair.
