Laura C's Father's Day Card


I don't know about you, but I always have the toughest time coming up with guy cards, but I really love the way this one turned out!!

Base is chocolate brown cardstock cut 4 1/4" by 5 1/2". Large blue piece is a 5" by 5" piece I ran thru the cuttlebug using the herringbone A2 folder, and then trimmed to 3 3/4" by 5". The placket is a 1 1/2" by 5" piece that is pierced using a paper piercing tool at 5/16" intervals and stitching was made using a clear sakura gel pen. The collar is a 1" by 1 1/2" piece cut on diagonal (from corner to opposite corner). The placket piece is adhered to the middle of the blue herringbone piece, and the collar pieces centered as shown.....I then trimmed the end points off so they are even with the "shirt". This piece is then adhered to the brown base card. I used a spellbinders die to cut out the brown tag, I cut a second one out of the blue. Just the oval part of the tag is cut out of the blue piece, and then it's stamped with the "Happy Father's Day" sentiment and adhered to the brown tag. I took 4 basic shirt buttons and stitched in a criss-cross pattern around the button. Then used glue dots to adhere the buttons and the sentiment to the center of the card.

I love the basic clean lines of this card, and it looks so much like a real shirt, right down to the texture on the "fabric"! It's a great way to say Happy Father's Day to any guy in your life!!
