Thank you for joining me today for another masculine project using Stampin' Up! True Gentleman Paper. This would go perfectly with the Shirt card I made and make a lovely Fathers Day of birthday card.
- I used a rectangle of True Gentleman paper measuring 6" x 11"
- This means you can get 2 from a 12" x 12" sheet
- This shirt if made slightly differently from the card topper
- As before the paper is folded in half length ways
- Then each side is folded to the center line
- Burnish these creases
- Choose which end will be the bottom
- Fold each corner over until it meets the the first fold and burnish
- The sides were folded back to the center then this section was folded to the back
- Just the top section was folded and then burnished again
- The section was then unfolded again and the triangle section oped up by matching the diagonal to the side edge on both sides to form right angles
- Fold the other end over to form the collar in the same way as was done for the shirt card
- Then fold in half and tuck the sleeves section under the collar
- I then used some Fast Fuse to stick down sections to give it more stability
Gift card pocket
- I made a little pocket out of Very Vanilla cardstock to hold a gift card 3" x 2 3/4"
- I scored @ 1/4" on 3 sides
- Cut diagonally across the bottom edges
- Using the Starburst punch I punch a semicircle so the gift card is easier to in and out
- Apply glue onto outer edge and stick in place
- I cut a square in Very Vanilla using the largest Stitched Framelit Die
- This was stuck to the shirt back for a message
- I made a tie and a belly band with a greeting
- For the tie you need a scrap of coordinating paper, you could use the reveres of the paper
- I used a trip 1" x 5"ish!
- I scored @ 1/4" & 3/4" on the short side
- I folder the corners in on one end to the center to form a point
- I then folder in the scored lines and burnished all folds
- I trimmed the tie down to just longer than I wanted it and folded a small section over at the top
- I then wrapped the excess I cut off around the top and glued to form the knot
- This was then glued in place
- I then took the Corduroy Ribbon and cut a strip that went around the shirt
- I used the 'Treat Yourself' sentiment as I thought that was appropriate for a gift card
- I stamped it onto Very Vanilla and punched out with the 1 3/8" scallop punch
- I then pUnch a 1 1/2" circle from Night Of Navy
- The ribbon ends were glued to the top of the Night of Navy circle
- The sentiment topper was then adhered to this using mini dimensionals
