This one is for the men.....

With Father's day coming up and men always so difficult to craft for, I had to get on and make something without delay. Fortunately, I already had a starting point, in the shape of an embossing folder with a clocks design (ideal for a clock-mad father).

I die-cut a shape out of metal and inked the folder with versamark before running it through the die-cutting machine. The first layer of embossing powder is Frantage Aged Aqua. Then I highlighted some clocks with black embossing powder and some with gold.
Whilst the stamping takes a second place on this card, I used no fewer than 5 stamps for the ticket and tag flag die-cuts : the clock and "time to celebrate" are from the Craft Stamper magazine, the sentiment is one of my own, for texture I used the Grunge stamp and the tag flag die's matching stamp (I used the kissing technique with this one), both from Impression Obsession. A bit of twine, distress inked edges and a black mat finish the card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
