Bow Tie Father's Day Card

As I have been doing all week, I am making cards depicting stamps and/or products that are retiring by June 2.

Today's card it is not the stamp, nor is it the main image, but extras that are usually put on a card.

The base card is Early Espresso, layered with Marina Mist embossed with the Argyle embossing folder.  Some Whisper White cardstock is layered on top of that, the bottom of which is punched with the scallop edge punch.  A piece of 1/8" Basic Black taffeta ribbon is adhered just over the scalloped edge.

The bow ties are made using the bow builder punch.  Three patterns of the Adventure Bounds DSP stack were used.  In the middle of each bow a gold basic metal button, which had been threaded with a tiny sliver of Early Espresso cardstock, was adhered with a glue dot.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched with the Word Window punch and matted with the Modern Word Label punch.

Have you figured out what is retiring?  The argyle embossing folder, the Scallop border punch, the 1/8" Basic Black taffeta ribbon, the Modern word label punch, and the Adventure Bounds DSP stack.
