Father's Bow Ties



I can't believe that Father's Day is almost here!  Where has the year gone?  It's a good thing that I saw THIS adorable card over on Stampin' Connection (website for Stampin Up demonstrators) by the talented, Artisan Award winning Heather Klump, to get me going.  I liked this idea of creating bow ties and tried a couple different combinations.  With my husband's suggestion that it was a little more masculine, we made the gray and yellow one for club this month. 



The bow ties were created using the Pennant Punch, and the 3/4" circle punch.  I used the paper piercing tool and mat pack to go around the edge of the white layer.  For the banners I stamped, (from the set Delightful Dozen) colored in with the coordinating color using the very fine end of my markers, and then hand cut the shape. 

The buttons are from the Brights Designer Buttons collection, and both of the cards use a combination of papers from both the Twitterpated DSP set and the Summer Smooches DSP set (Daffodil Delight paper and Real Red polka-dots). 

Remember all the fathers in your life this coming Sunday the 17th!
