it's time to Celebrate by Mel Connell

Welcome Back Everyone. 
 Wow I can not believe it is May already. This year is sure passing quickly. Might be because of all the exciting projects I have been working on lately.
So My Brother-in-Laws Birthday was recently, and I created this card to give to him. We always have a strong moustache theme when it comes to him as he truly is a modern day Dapper, with a handlebar moustache, although it has recently been trimmed to a more modern version of that. 

So you will need some white card stock, some JAC paper (double sided sticky paper adhesive) some black Core'dinations cardstock with a white core, Couture Creations embossing folder, Couture Creations Nesting Dies, Victorian Square to get you started. 

Cut yourself a card blank from your white cardstock and a rectangle piece of your black Core'dinations cardstock. Run your Core'dinations cardstock through your embossing machine with your favourite Couture Creations embossing folder. Using your Couture Creations sanding block, gently rub back the embossed surface to expose the white core inside. Distress the edges of this pieces and adhere to the centre of your card blank. 

Using another piece of white card stock cut some JAC paper large enough to fit your largest of two sizes of your nested dies. Stick this directly to the cardstock. Run through your machine and cut both sizes of nested shapes at the same time. One will be cut from just cardstock, the other will have the sticky JAC paper on one side. 

Peel back the protective paper of the JAC paper piece and stick he smaller nested shape right in the middle. Sprinkle the edges (sticky JAC edges) with glitter and press down with your finger to make sure you get a good adhesion.(if you don't have Jac paper you could use Red Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue)

Stamp a greeting onto the centre of the nested shapes and add an embellishment as I have with this resin moustache.
Mount this onto the front of your card with your High Tack Foam Tape 

As a final touch add some small gemstones using your LED Tweezers to areas of your embossed design.
