Dad's Day!

Happy Thursday everyone! Robin here with my inspiration of the week for Dies R Us!  If it's June, Father's Day is around the corner! This is a great masculine card for Father's Day, a birthday or any special "male" occasion. 

I layered a plaid background paper with a frame cut from Kraft paper using Spellbinders Nestabiliities - Large Labels and then added the tags. Both tags were cut with Taylored Expression's Tag Stacklets 1.  After sponging the edges of the large and small tag with Distress Ink, I added the metal looking grommet from Taylored Expressions Tag Reinforcements set. The small tag was stamped with a sentiment and added to the large tag.  I spelled the word "DAD" using Memory Box Parker Upper Alphabet Set, lightly sponged the edges of the letters and added them to the tag.

The card was finished with an antique rick rack from May Arts, a simple grosgrain ribbon and some metal gems. After adding three metal gears, from Tim Holtz, the tag was attached with heavy twine and foam dimensionals. 

Be sure to check out all our design team inspirations for the week! Lots of great ideas and designs using dies from Dies R Us!  And a reminder to enter our twice monthly Dies R Us Challenge Blog, check it out!
