I'm very limited as to stamp sets to use for men or for Father's Day, so I really had to put my thinking cap on. I had to hearken back to the days that I bought gifts for the men in my life and most often a tie was in the picture. So I though why not a tie card....or a card shaped like a tie. So I created my own pattern about 4 x 9" so it would fit in a #10 business envelope, cut it out and glued paper on my pattern from the new Just Add Cake Designers Series Paper from the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog. I designed my tie with swirls and flourishes from Baroque Motif (one of my favorite swirl stamps)...stamped it in VersaMark and heat set with Black Embossing Powder. Maybe I should be a fabulous designer of men's ties cause I think my tie is F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!!!!!! I hope you will all join me over at the Hand Stamped Sentiments Father's Day Challenge. If you need any of the supplies I used in this card or if you would like to have one of the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogs, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
