Last month, I had the pleasure of seeing my favorite Aussie, Peter Brewer, when he flew to San Francisco to speak at a real estate conference we both attended!

If I had time, I would create a special card for every friend of mine, but that’s just not feasible. So, when I knew I was going to see him and his famous mustache, I wanted to make him a card.Hey, man... nice 'stache.The pictures look dark to me, but I any filter I put on the photo changed the colors drastically, so I left all the photos untouched without a filter.

Mustache cardI am often inspired by popular songs and pop culture, so I probably got the phrase, “Hey man, nice ‘stache” from the Filter song “Hey Man, Nice Shot.” It was easy to pull this card together because I’d designed it in my head first. Using paper from DCWV “The Guy Stack” cardstock and my Cricut Explore, I cut the mustache and had the machine write my phrase with a pen.

Hey, man... nice 'stache!When my husband and I got into town, we discovered Peter and Tara were having dinner near our hotel, so we stopped in and surprised them. It was nice to hand The Mustached One his card before the fast-paced conference week began.

Peter loved his card!Hurray for friends!
