I saw the tie part of this card in last year's Stampin' Up catalog, but I couldn't see what the creator of the card had done with the bottom, so the bottom part is my own creation. In the Stampin' Up catalog, the "cardist" used cute little tie stamps. I didn't have those, so I used my Silhouette to download a tie image.
After the ties were cut out, they were so intricate - like spiderwebs or lace - that I couldn't effectively glue them to the white tie backgrounds, so I Mod Podged them. I looooove Mod Podge.
The "Happy Father's Day" isn't a stamp - it's also a download from the Silhouette store online. You can print it on your printer, then stick it in your Silhouette and have it cut around it. I seriously loooove that machine...
Anyways, all said, this might be my favorite card of all time. It was wayyy too much fun to make.
