Manly Card!



I was cleaning out a few of the drawers in my craft room last weekend, and came across instructions from a masculine card class I took back in May 2004! It was one of the first classes I ever took at Angela's Happy Stamper, and it was taught by Laura. When I saw the instructions, I remembered that one of the cards we made had a piece of paper on it folded to look like a man's shirt. I remembered it being really easy to make and with Father's Day approaching, I thought I would try to make one. It is easy! The paper I used to make the shirt was 3"x3" and the tie was 1"x1", those were kind of small so I put the shirt on a small 4 1/4" square card. I would probably use larger pieces if I were making a normal sized card. If you want to make your own, you can find the instructions here. Hope you have a nice weekend!

I love the idea of using the same plaid in the background. Sharp looking!
