Let Your Hair Down

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Linda Aarhus posted a sample using her Fringe Scissors to make a card using the appropriate sentiment from the "Let Your Hair Down" Hostess Set.  Thank you Linda for your creativity.  Here is my version of a card using brown hair to make it suitable to my birthday recipient. 
First I rounded the edges of my Whisper White Card Stock base (4 1/4" x 11").  I then cut my hair pieces - one at 4" x 1 1/2"  for the top bangs (use the corner punch on this piece also), two side panels measuring 5" x 1" and two smaller side panels measuring 3" x 1".    The reason I used two side panels of two different lengths is to make it easier when cutting with your Fringe Scissors.  As you start cutting your 5" piece it gets harder to keep cutting to the top, therefore, I added the smaller layer to cover where the 5" piece is not cut. 
I also used Sticky Strip at the top of each layer to keep me from cutting all the way through and to get a good hold.  I used Candy Dots to make blue eyes, and added my sentiment to the middle.  A fun card that you can change to suite the hair and eye color of the person you are sending it too.

The following were used:
