Shirt & Tie Father's Day Card

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there.

Created this Shirt & Tie Father's Day Card at a free Stampin Up (SU) Make & Take yesterday, Sat 6/16.

Card base is Kraft cardstock. Used red & green cardstock layers and a word printed piece of cardstock layer that I distressed by tearing the cardstock.  I had to read the words before choosing my piece of word printed cardstock. Found one that had some words about landscaping. If you look closely below the shirt you will see the landscaping word.
Used a SU blue marker to color the tie of Best Dad Ever clear stamp set and then stamped tie on white cardstock. Cut above the tie and folded down the corners to make the shirt. Added a paperclip and red ribbon. Used Delightful Dozen clear stamp set to stamp "happy FATHER'S day" on Kraft cardstock. Used a VersaMarker to color in the letters of "FATHER'S." I've used VersaMark ink for heat embossing but did not know about a marker like this.

Photographed with the white shirt & red tie that daughter & I are giving hubby for Father's Day.

Look closely below the shirt to see 
the 'landscaping' word:

marker: VersaMark
metal: paperclip
4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Base Kraft cardstock
3 1/4" x 3 1/4" red cardstock
3" x 3" green cardstock

ribbon: red
stamps: Stampin UP
Best Dad Ever - tie
