I 'Mustache' You a Question...

mustache you a question card

Confession, I'm a little a lot  tech-challenged. Case in point:

This particular pun-riddled card is one that I made a 'print and cut card kit' for, in the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software, but when I got my new computer my custom files and my custom patterns wouldn't transfer with the new updates to the software (only the ones I bought in the Silhouette store).

So... long story short, as soon as I have access to my PC again I'll be sure to share my chevron cut file from last week and this card kit - in case anyone wants to throw together a quick and unforgivably punny card. (That should be in just a few days). And one of these days I'll figure out how to transfer all the other files.

Here's the inside of the card:

mustache you INSIDE

The mustachio'ed  smiley face was cut out of white cardstock (it cuts the mustache out of the circle): To add colour to him I just used Mustard Seed Distress Ink. That was backed with another circle with the mustache detail in Pumice Stone Distress Ink & doodled lines of black Sharpie marker. His eyes were added with the sharpie too:

You might remember this mustache paper (and overlay) from earlier days. It's one of my free printable paper sets and is available here in zip flies, if you like it:

Fabulous! Mel, can I just ask a quick question... Is that a typeface you've used or an alphabet stamp??? Jo x

Hi Dotty Jo, it's a typeface. I tried to find the name for you, but unfortunately i don't have all my old fonts transferred over yet. As soon as I get my old PC fired up (in a few days) I'll let you know the specific font if you like. <3

I also "moustache" you what font you used. Love it! Thanks for all your sharing.

this is sweetly-funny but also has a great message/sentiment!

Gosh Mel, we just got you back and now you are gone again! I know I'm not the only one who misses you.

Hi Mel,

Darling card as usual. Haven't seen you in awhile. Hope all is well. :)

Open the files you created, then save them as a studio file. You can then transfer the files onto your new computer - I'd suggest in a specific folder - and open them using file,open. Once open on your new computer you should be able to save them to your library for easy access by using the save as feature :-) Hope that helps.
