Father's Day Tie Card

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my husband for Father's day. I had a cartridge or two with ties on them, but I didn't like the shape or style of them. So I created my own tie design using my Gypsy and Cricut Art Philosophy to weld one together from other shapes. I heat embossed the first sentiment that says "You're the best" with some Close To My Heart "cocoa" brown colored embossing powder (one of the only places I've been able to find brown embossing powder). The second sentiment is just stamped with Olive Close To My Heart ink. The sentiment is too big for the space...I really should have left it off and stamped the inside of the card with that sentiment. But I still think the card looks cute and most importantly--masculine.

Here is my card:

I will enter into these challenges:
1. Penny's Paper Craft Challenge - #81 Father's Day
2. Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Father's Day
3. Stuck on U Sketches - All about fathers
4. The Pink Elephant - Masculine
