Timeless Classic Tim Holtz style tag...

Hello! It's Monika here today, bringing you a Father's Day card.
Did you see Kim's super cool card the other day? If you haven't gotten your hands on Timeless Classic clear stamp set, it's not too late! It's a must have set for masculine cards. I decided to use it and make a Tim Holtz style tag.

First I die-cut my tag using a Tim Holtz die (Tag & Bookplates) and colored it with distress stains (using the famous Tim Holtz technique). I distressed the edges with brown ink then I stamped and heat embossed some gear images. I also embossed the edges of the tag randomly with white embossing powder.

I stamped the vintage car image on vellum and layered it on top of a piece of old dictionary page piece. The greeting was stamped on a die-cut tag (Tim Holtz-Tattered Banners).
To embellish the tag, I died a piece of white seam binding ribbon with the same colored stains I used on the background, added couple of mini button brads, and couple of watch pieces! Voila!

I hope we inspired you to get this great set if you don't have it already!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
