Welcome to a fun Father’s Day Cards inspiration. It’s me, Sandra Dietrich, and I’ve got a pretty cool idea that will make your dad smile. I created a couple of cards with colorful shirts and ties. Let’s look at the cards first:
Aren’t those little shirts with the ties the cutest? I would like to share how I made the shirts. First, cut a piece of patterned paper from the Jen Hadfield Reaching Out collection with The Works All-In-One-Tool to size 6 x 3.5 inches.
Second, score the paper at 3/8 inches on one side and fold. Third, score the paper at 7/8 inches on the left and right side. And then fold the paper.
Fourth, now fold the shirt sleeves at the top. Fifth, score the paper at the bottom at 3/8 inches and fold. Sixth, fold the shirt collar.
Next, fold the paper to make a shirt and glue the shirt with liquid glue or use a stapler. Eighth, draw a tie onto white paper and cut with a pair of scissors to make a template. A template is quite handy if you want to make more ties later. Now cut the tie from patterned paper by using the template and a pair of scissors. Ninth, attach the tie onto the shirt with foam pads.
Next, grab a card base and attach the shirt with foam pads. Last but not least, pierce two holes into the card and insert the alphabet pin from Jen Hadfield.
And now you are done! You can create shirts in all different styles. And I’m sure your dad will LOVE your cards.
I hope you like my card inspiration. Have fun creating today.
