Shirt cards..

Hi all,
Today is my Papermill Direct Dt posting.

I thought I would show you a little tutorial. This is not my idea so I cannot take the credit . There are many versions out there on the internet. I do however hope you enjoy my tutorial and find it useful especially with fathers day coming up which these cards would be perfect for. 

I will not use specific measurements for my tutorial as this card can be adapted to suit many different sizes

What you need:

A card blank.  I use papermill direct linen cardstock and score my own.
A sheet of patterned card/paper which is the same width but around a 3rd longer again than you card blank (see picture below)
A strip of the same patterned paper to make a cuff
And your embellishments. For my examples I have used a printed tie and badge 
I have also used some printed buttons from the same digi kit as I printed my paper from 
but you could easily cut a tie shape and maybe use really buttons or brads instead as I have in my other example. Or a nice piece of fabric or thick ribbon for the tie would be lovely.

You will also need a pair of scissors or craft knife
a ruler and score tool or scoreboard
corner rounder or coin 
and adhesive of your choice

Firstly you need to score your piece of patterned card once along the same length as your base card and once half of that measurement (see below)

Now cut along the first scoreline  (see below) for my finished card which is 15cm square I cut around an inch inbut of course this will depend on your finished project. 
I would suggest trying this part on a piece of copy paper to see how wide you like your collar.

Now fold the remaining scoreline back on itself 

And fold this down to form the collar so the two points meet in the middle

To make the sleeve and cuff
Cut your long strip of card into 2 rectangles one slightly longer than the other and round the corners of the longest piece either with a corner rounder or you could use a coin to draw round and cut with scissors

This is what you should have now

Adhere all the piece into place using your chosen adhesive and adhere to the card blank

There are so many possibilities for this type of card. 
Christmas ties, tiny gift card size ones, printing digi images on to the ties and colouring, make a pocket using the same technique as for the cuff etc etc

I have used Papermill Direct Linen cardstock to print all of my elements onto 
Thank you for stopping by today
