Father's Day!

Over at Cut It Up, we're celebrating fathers with tie die cuts ----not to be confused with tie dye cuts!  hahahaha  Of course, you could make a tie dye tie die cut!  Ok, let's get away from my bad puns on homonyms and homographs and get back to the matter at hand.

I found this card on Cricut Design Space; it is called Father's Day Card -- Sunday's Best.

This is one simple card to make and it's really quite versatile!  I'm actually planning to use this card for a masculine congratulations card and not a Father's Day card.  (My dad isn't really the suit and tie kind of guy anymore.)  I think this card would be perfect for groomsmen, graduates, new jobs, etc as well as Father's Day.

This is an ideal last minute card; all you need to do is cut it and line it.  I did add the black triangles over the folded edge to make the shirt collar points black.

I chose CTMH fundamentals cardstock;  I used the same on the inside but changed the color by rubbing some black archival ink over it.  The pattern resists and the effect is really fun!  My congratulations stamp is from CTMH The Happy Couple.

I hope you'll join us in our tie challenge celebrating fathers and other important men in our lives.  Remember to include a die cut tie on your project for the opportunity to win a prize form May Art Ribbons!  Check out Cut It Up for all the details!

Thanks for coming by today!

I'm sending this card off to the following challenge:
