I thought this was such a cute idea when I saw it online! The card is so striking in person. It is a great masculine card!
This project is made using the Envelope Punch Board and the Bow Builder Punch.
Let me show you how to make it
Cut a piece of Soft Suede cardstock or color of your choice to 7 7/8″ x 7 7/8″. Then use score line 3 3/8″. Score and punch according to the directions for making an envelope.
This is the finished envelope. Now you are going to cut off the top and bottom flap.
This is what the card will look like after you cut of the top and bottom flap
For the inside of the card cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to 4″ x 6 1/4″.
Cut on the side of the cardstock 1/2″ down from the top. Cut in about 1 1/2″ on each side to make the collar.
Fold down the collar and adhere with Glue Dots.
Punch out your bow using the Bow Builder Punch. Punch out twice, you will need a couple extra pieces to make the pocket and handkerchief.
Adhere your bow to just under the collar. See the piece that you wrap around the bow in the center, punch out another piece like that one in Soft Suede.
This is how you make the pocket. Use the little extra piece you punched out with the Bow Builder Punch (Soft Suede) for the pocket. Use the left over Cajun Craze bow pieces to make the handkerchief. Adhere pocket and handkerchief to the vest using Stampin’Dimensionals.
Add your greeting on the inside on the shirt.
Such a fun project. Of course you can jazz the vest up by adding Designer Series Paper to the outside.
Here is one I made using some Designer Series Paper adhered to the Soft Suede cardstock. It really changes the appearance and so does adding a different button.
The Designer Series Paper I used is currently retired. I hope you like this project! I just had to share it, it is fun to make. Supplies needed will be listed below minus the DSP. Add your favorite button! By the way, this card fits in a A6 size envelope or you can make your own with the Envelope Punch Board.
Don’t forget to take time to CREATE!
