World's Greatest

My dad's birthday is next week and this is the card I made for him.  I just got this stamp set a couple months ago and had to pull it out and ink it up.  My dad used to be the principal of a private, Christian school, so he wore a tie to work everyday.  Since he's been finished with the school, I'm not sure I've seen him wear a tie more than a handful of times.  But, I still couldn't resist using this set.
I used four of the tie images (I believe there are 6 patterns and one plain in the set) to create a fun background using navy blue and red inks.  After I got it all finished, I couldn't bear to cover up the background, so I created a narrow frame to house a vellum panel.  I stamped the sentiment on the vellum and finished with a die cut tie and the rest of the sentiment.  To keep the sentiment from being lost in the background, I popped the whole frame element up with some foam tape.

Stamps: PaperTrey Ink "World's Greatest"
Dies: PaperTrey Ink coordinating tie; MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle; Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A"

Wonderful masculine birthday card. Love how you used vellum for the frame layer so the ties could show through. Thanks for playing with us at Krafty Chicks Challenge this week.
