Fan-tashe-tic Inspiration.

Hello and welcome to the first of the new Design Team inspiration posts.  For my post I decided to use something from Sarah's range that I think is fan-tashe-tic, yip you guessed it - moustaches! I mean what is not to love about them? And the fact that they are so on-trend at the minute is only feeding my addiction.

I thought I would demonstrate how well Sarah's products work together to compliment each other and that you don't just need to stamp or use digi kits to create a great card. I know some people, including me, get nervous using hybrid crafting so here is an ideal way to have a play with your printer, stamps and if you have one, an electronic cutting machine.

I saw the moustaches in the Silhouette Store and thought I would make a card with a bookmark that can be kept and reused. I used the Moustache Paper Clips, using only the rectangular one and made it larger so it can be noticed in a book.  Whilst I was browsing I saw the Gentleman's Accessories and thought they would be great toppers for the card.  For my main background paper I used the Steampunk Kit as there are amazing digi papers and toppers in the kit, that's where my sentiment came from too. I printed it onto glossy photo paper and it looks even better in real life. I also used the brand new Moustache Background Stamp and I know I will be using it a lot more too.

 I wanted to show you the bookmard off the card, to illustrate that the card can still look awesome and the bookmark can be used as a wee gift for the card recipient to keep.

I really hope you have liked my post and it inspires you to dabble in hybrid crafting with Sarah's range of digital kits, stamps, papers, embellishments and Silhoutte files. And remember to join us tomorrow for Nicole's post. Bye.
