Sizzix - A happy birthday masculine card with hat and moustache

With this card I join a challenge on Simon Says Stamp blog: Make it masculine!

This will be the birthday card of my hubby :-)

To make this card I combined  two Sizzix step-up cards by Stephanie Barnard. 

First I cut out the basic with Sizzix Happy Birthday Step-Up Framelits Die:

I used the other side of the printed cardstock to cut out the "happy birthday" saying.

I used another cardstock to cut out the hat twice with Sizzix Top Hats and Moustaches Thinlits Die by Jen Long (659063). After I cut out the hat from a simple brown cardstock and with scissors I cut out a piece for the band. 

I cut out the moustache twice from a plain black cardstock.

I used a very thin but strong wire and I placed and glued it to the middle of the hat and the moustache. 

What I also used:

Sizzix Framelits Die, Basic by Stephanie Barnard (660023)

Basic Crate Paper double sided cardstock (680170)

Authentique Paper, double sided cardstock, Natural Collection "Beaming"

Ranger Distress Ink Pads (tea dye, scattered straw, frayed burlap) - for the edges of the elements

Pritt Stift Stick, 3D adhesive, Aleene's Tacky Glue (fast grab)
