Father’s Day Ties Card

I remember the only choices for Father’s Day cards (at least at the pharmacy where I shopped before age 10!) in my youth were decorated with neckties or fishing images. My Dad did wear a necktie to work, he had no interest in fishing. He no longer wears a necktie that often, he still isn’t interested in fishing.

I used my MISTI to create this pattern. Easy peasy. (one necktie stamp, stamped 15 times)

Supplies: Stamps – Lawn Fawn, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Blue (retired), Real Red, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.
