Father's Day Cards

I wanted to start a bit earlier this year so I don't have to rush unlike last year Father's day.  Some of my cards were late and I was not a happy camper.  :(
I found a tie stamp set at Michaels after Father's day and loved it!  I did the Tie cutout last year and thought how cute the stamp set was.  I have not seen yet for this year, but something should come out soon.  I noticed all the Michaels were re-stocking shelves the past couple of weeks. 

All of the paper used are what I have in my stash.  I am really trying to use up what I have before I go out and purchase more.  Although all the new paper pads are really hard to resist.  I just have so much paper I can't really see me buying new stuff.   

My first card is a take on last years.  I hand cut the tie shape.  There is no pattern. 
I used my cricut to cut out the word DAD.  The background is a embossing template I had for years.  Its a quick cuts?  Its not sizzix or cuttlebug I am sure.

My second card  used my mini sewing machine to stitch around the mat.  I wanted to make a pocket for the pull tag.  This is the Michaels stamp set with the tie.  The papers are just some old CM scrapbook paper I had.  

Thanks for stopping by and I will be making my rounds to everyone's blog later tonight.  :)
