The cards I have to share with you today are 3 shirt and tie cards…
I made 3 different colour combinations
to suit 3 different men.
These are great cards for both birthday or Father’s Day.
I have been asked for the instructions to make this card, so I thought it would be easier to show you my template –
3.5cm = 1 3/8″ 21cm = 8″ 7.5cm = 2 7/8″ 10.5cm = 3 3/8″ 2cm = 6/8″
12cm = 4 6/8″ 6cm = 2 3/8″ 9.5cm = 3 6/8″ 4.5cm = 1 6/8″ 5cm = 2″
I covered the front of my card (A4 folded in half) in patterned paper, leaving only a small border, so you could see the coloured card.
Then using the template above, I cut out a collar (the measurement to the point of the collar is 6cm – I missed it off!) and the pocket in the same paper.
The tie, knot and top of pocket are cut out of card stock and I sponged around them all in the same colour ink.
I glued down the tie. The knot was glued at the top, but I used a dimensional at the base, to give it some lift.
The collar was adhered using dimensionals, but used a glue dot were the collar overlaps the knot.
The top of the pocket is glued onto the patterned paper pocket and then adhered with dimensionals.
To finish I added a button and tie pin with my sentiment on.
