Father's Day Cards

Ever since I spotted this post on Creature Comforts about repurposing the insides of security envelopes into buntings, I have been saving my security envelopes. 

I thought a Father's Day card with a necktie bunting would be the perfect use  (I particularily like the plaid tie!).  You just cut a neck tie shape out of various security envelope and glue it to cardstock.  Next, connect, the neckties with a fine black line.  Easy.
This is the other card I made. It is for my dad.  He loves the Detective Agency stories.  [I have posted about these stories before.]  I used Lavender and Limes' tutorial for the silhouette.
Inside the card, I stamped a quote from the story

I learned many, many things from my father. To use my eyes.
To use my ears. And my memory. He taught me to be patient.
[The quote continues: Most of all, he thought me to love my country Botswana.]
