Welcome to project number 3 of my Fathers Day week. Today i have a very sweet shirt/suit card. As the title suggests, the shirt drops down and you can decorate the inside however you wish. Its a really cute card and the great thing is no dies are required. All you need is some card, paper a Pencil & Ruler.
I choose some Balloons & stars to decorate mine but i also think it would look nice if you put a picture inside or maybe a lovely verse. You have a few different options.
I had a stamp set that had a Tie in it so i just stamped, coloured in and then fussy cut it out. If you don't have a stamp like mine you could just use a Bow die and have a Bow Tie instead. You can also make your own Bows if you have an envelope punch board.
My faux stitching was created using a white gel pen & i think it really sets the card off. The buttons are die cuts but i think they are a little big for my card. You can of course use real Buttons if you have any.
