Father's Day CASE and 50% Off Paper Pumpkin Offer

Linda Aarhus made a Father's Day card awhile back and I loved her tie idea, so I made my own version. I love how those little prints make great ties! I used some retired scraps and I have no idea which prints they are, since they were all in a big stack with no labels. My accent colors are Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry and Old Olive. 

I had to order some of those cute hangers, which come in the retiring "Hung Up Cute Clips" assortment. They are so cute! 

I made the above graphic using the neat card that comes in the Paper Pumpkin kit each month. I backed it with a piece of the new Tangelo Twist card stock.  I've been loving my kits, since they allow me to complete a project in very little time. All of the "ingredients" are in the box and make it easy to grab your adhesive and scissors and take them with you on a trip or to craft with a friend. Last month's offering was a cute 4 x 4" frame that you could have used for a Mother's Day gift. This month's kit has a Father's Day-themed stamp.

I like this a lot! Did you use a pattern to cut the ties, or freehand?

Hi hKetG: I cut a pattern from a piece of Whisper White card stock. No tracing, just started snipping with my Paper Snips!!
