You're the en-TIE-re package!

** Click HERE for my blogaversary giveaway **

Wow! It's already June, boy does time fly! We're a couple of weeks shy of Father's Day, but over at Made Especially for You we want to get your ideas flowing already with a Father's Day cards. The challenge this week is to create a Father's Day card using chipboard. 

I hardly ever make "manly cards" and I have to say, this is as manly as I was able to get LOL I know, not the manliest. 

The tie is from Summer Celebrations cartridge (page 40, button 19). I hid the striped layers using my Gypsy and instead of cutting the "knot" a different color, I cut it with the same paper.
The sentiment mat is from Twinkle Toes cartridge. I inked the edges of both cuts with Vintage Photo distress ink.
The face on the tie is from Peachy Keen's Boy Mates assortment. 
The sentiment "You're the en-TIE-re Package!" is from Scrappy Moms The Charmed Life set. 
The inside sentiment is actually made up of two Scrappy Moms stamp sets. "Specially for You" is from Sweet Somethings and "Dad" is from For the Boys
As for the chipboard, sometimes we gotta work with what we have and don't have... I didn't have any chipboard so I decided to use a cereal box as "chipboard". Worked great! 
I cut the shadow of the tie with my "chipboard". 
Also, this is the first card I made using an Action Wobble, but it was a little too big... so I trimmed it :-) 
Here are the best two pictures I was able to take with the Action Wobble at work. 
Oh, and all of the pattern paper is from Echo Park, I just ♥ their paper!
