Black Tie Card for Dad


I love this Father's Day card I designed for a recent stamp camp I hosted with a friend. It would be perfect for any guy and can be used for a birthday card or a congrats card too. I started with a black A2 card base, a white piece and a sparkly white piece both cut to 5 1/4" x 4". I cut the V neck out of the sparkly piece and embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. I attached the shirt and vest pieces and added a couple pearls for buttons. The black suede tie was created with my envelope punch board (We R Memory Keepers) using directions I found on Pinterest. The lapel piece was cut to 2" x 5 1/2" and then I folded down the lapel. I cut a square pocket and attached the #1 Dad (dies from Die-Versions and Spellbinders.)

I am entering this card in the Masculine challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and at the Father's Day challenge at Polkadoodles.
