Fathers Day card over at MSC

Today over at our design team was asked to make a card or project with Fathers day in mind. Sandy asked us to make a male theme card which was to have some embossing on it.
Here is my card which I will be sending up to my Dad in North Wales.

This card is 5x7 in size and first I pricked the edge and stitched the bakers twine through and brought it to the front to tie off.
The image is from Rubbernecker which I stamped using black and then heat embossed with clear powder. I coloured it in using my trusty Promarker pens.
After that I used my Spellbinder die to make a "in to the box" cut away. This is shown to us by Sue Wilson of I then used the die design to cut away the rest of the white card, I inked using black soot. I popped a bit of union jack paper behind and then matted it on to silver paper leaving a small boarder.
I did a spot of faux stitching and printed out my own sentiment and gave that the same treatment too. Of course I had to add a few pearls in the top corner.

Now it is your turn to make a card and post it over on the link. Remember it must have embossing on it and in a male theme to stand a chance to win.

Thanks for looking in.
