Hello all! We have been having some miserable weather here in Canada’s Capital Region (snow, freezing rain and rain) but it’s been great for crafting. I actually got two cards done today! I thought I’d share my dress shirt card with you today. I have been seeing shirt type cards all over Pinterest for a while now and decided I would try my hand at one. These are great for a birthday or Father’s Day and are fairly quick and easy to make.
First I cut out the shirt collar and tie to fit my 5×6.5 inch card. Since this is a really simple project I decided to add the details of a real dress shirt. So I hauled out my sewing machine, dusted it off and added stitching to the collar. I then found two small clear buttons, added white embroidery floss to the button holes and glued them to the collar for a button down look.
I glued the tie to the shirt and then popped up the collar with foam dimensionals. At the last minute, I decided to add a tie clip, which I cut out of a piece of Grey Wool CS. I stamped DAD on it and added a small rhinestone to finish it off.
So if you’re wondering why I called this post Your Guiding Hand, you just have to read the inside of the card. I thought this was a lovely thing to say to someone as special as a Dad.
Have a wonderful day everyone and happy crafting!
