Less than 2 months until Christmas! Yes, I know it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet, but when I saw this Mustache Rollagraph Wheel Stamp designed by Jen Goode, one of those mustaches reminded me of Santa. I couldn’t resist making a Santa Christmas card and candy gift tag with the stamping wheel. (Also, you may remember Jen as the designer of the stamp in last month’s Pink Ribbon Treat Bag Toppers.)
Jen sent me a box of supplies to use for my project, including the Mustache stamping wheel. From the box, I used the wheel, along with the sparkly white cardstock and the sticky-back silver gems.
From my own craft stash (or ‘stache, if you enjoy bad puns!) I added red and kraft cardstock, white pigment ink, red chalk ink,white embossing powder, stamp, bakers’ twine and dimensional alphabet letters.
I started the card by rolling the Mustache stamp and white ink across the red cardstock, and heat embossing the images using white embossing powder. I cut 2 additional “Santa-style” mustaches as well, and glued them to tags cut from kraft cardstock. A stripe of the white glitter cardstock, one of the mustache tags, and the “ho ho ho” letters completed my Santa Christmas card.
For the Santa mustache gift tag, I used a tall vertical tag cut from white cardstock, and added a 1″ strip of red cardstock along the left side. I filled a plastic test tube-type container with m&m’s, wrapped it with red and white bakers’ twine and attached it over the red strip. A small gift stamped in red, and the last mustache-stamped kraft tag tied with twine completed the tag.
