Dad Father Daddy Pop Father's Day Card

First time using a Simon Says Stamp die, Full Card Dad.

Cut the front using SSS die and some Houndstooth cardstock for a vintage look. Embossed yellow cardstock and for a vintage look distressed it with Tim Holtz: sander & Distress inks. Glued the SSS die cut to embossed distressed front. Stamped sentiment for inside.

Had hubby tie the ribbon tie since I could not do it and he has no idea that I'm using it for a Father's Day Card for him. Added a star brad for a tie tack look.
