Father's Day card #1

Hi all, and Happy Memorial Day weekend to you. I hope that you and yours are able to get out and enjoy the long weekend. It's a lazy Sunday here so I cranked out a couple cards for Father's Day. The second card will be on another post so stay tuned! Here's a card I made using the Deconstructed Sketch #53.

So did you all make your Father's Day cards yet? Normally I'd wait until the last moment, but we are going on vacation soon, so I wanted to get these done before we left. All patterned paper is from Echo Park. Card stock is from DCWV (white and beige) and Recollections (kraft). I got out my Sew Easy and sewed around the major panels. For the tie, I downloaded some clip art off the internet and paper pieced it. I cut the circle with my Grand Calibur and the "Dad" using my Slice. The black dots are from Colorbok. The only stamp I used was on the inside (from Hero Arts). I love how this came out!

Stay tuned for another post: Father's Day part 2! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
