Shirt & tie card
Posted by CamilaB, 14 Jun, 2017
Does your dad love his shirts? Craft this shirt and tie card to resemble his style!
1. Trim 5.3cm off the side of an 8 x 8" piece of cardstock and keep the spare strip for later. Make a mark on the cardstock panel 4.3cm down and snip into both sides by 3cm, using a small pair of scissors or a craft knife and metal ruler. Take both top corners and fold down to make the collar, so the two points meet in the middle.
2. Select the strip you saved earlier and cut two 5.5cm pieces. Mount a 1.3cm strip of contrasting cardstock at the bottom of each square and adhere to the back of the shirt with double-sided tape. Angle so that the top and bottom corners meet the side of the card. Use the same coloured cardstock as the sleeve detail to cover the collar and create a pocket large enough to fit a gift card. Round the bottom corners and fix in place with a strip of 3D foam tape
3. Draw a 17cm long tie freehand onto a piece of cardstock and cut out. Use the swallow embossing folder to add some texture. Shade the birds with a dark blue ink pad. Fix in place with 3D foam and add two buttons to the collar. Adhere to a card blank to finish.
