Let's Hear It For The Boys!
Hey there everyone! I am off to the lake today to spend the weekend with some of my best scrappy girlfriends. But before I depart, I am taking time to share this manly man card with you. This card was made from a basic vest card cut file (downloaded from the Silhouette America store) and a bit of creativity on my part.
The original vest card included the out side vest cut, the lining, the shirt collar, and tie cuts (oh and the pocket tabs). While I really liked the basic vest card, the thing that bothered me was that I would have to sign the card over top of the neck tie. Well that just seemed wrong! So I created and cut a shirt insert! Problem solved.
I glued the tie and shirt collar onto the front of the shirt, and then I glued the shirt into the front right side of the vest. Now when I open the vest I have the entire back of the card free to stamp a message and sign the card!
I found a container of assorted color SEI button top brads in my desk drawer and realized they were perfect for this card. I added two light blue button brads to the color and four navy button brads to the front of the vest. I also added the pocket tabs from the original cut file.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you like my crazy printed vest "manly man card". I will be back soon with another new project.
