Shirt and Tie Card

Hello all you wonderful people!  Today I have a card for you that I made as a thank you card.  Our friends gave my hubby a beautiful suit with tie and even shoes for our business!  I thought this card would be very appropriate.  I did it all by hand and then after that, I realized there is actually a shirt and tie cut n one of my cricut cartridges!  Who knew?  After spending a ton of time trying to figure out how to do this, I found that out just a about a minute later! :p  So here it is...

Onto the deets... The following materials were used in this little venture:

  1. Tie and kerchief:  Paper that I won from
Pocket and shirt: Recollections card stock from Michaels
Card base:  Recollections card stock from Michaels
I made the buttons with my awesome new Epiphany punch that I purchased at work
I used a Zig blue pen for the faux stitching
Thank you very much stamp - not sure where it's from (ebay LOL)
Adhesive by Tombow I think
and I used my Martha Stuart Scoring Board for the folds

This is my first attempt at a card like this and I think it turned out pretty darn cute!  I didn't have a pattern to follow really, just visualized it for the most part.  Even borrowed my hubby's tie to kind of compare.  If you have any other questions let me know!
