Stampin' Up!® True Gentleman Fathers Day card

Nigezza, AKA Gez, Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator

Welcome to my Blog, today I have the first of 3 masculine projects using Stampin' Up!® True Gentleman Designer Series Paper. I just love this paper and will be sad to see it go. When I check there was still stock available but it is on 'while stocks last' so if you want it don't miss out. There is a link to my shop at the bottom of this post.

To make the tie

  • Sometimes you can use the reverse of the paper to create the tie but I did not like the other side of this paper so I use a different strip
  • Out of a scrap of paper that would compliment the shirt I used the Classic Label punch 
  • I punched 1 fully and one half one
  • I wrapped the half one around the top of the label making sure the top triangle was still visible
  • This was then secured with glue and stuck to the shirt

  • You can add glue to the inside of the shirt to make it more secure if you wish

Assembling the card

  • Stick the stitched square at a right angle to the left of the card
  • Stick shirt to this
  • Stamp sentiment to the right of the card
