Jacket, Shirt and Tie

These 2 cards were created for one of the executive manager's birthday where I work. He doesn't always wear a suit to work but, when he does these cards are the kind of look that portray him. The suit idea came from a tutorial that I found here.

I changed a couple of things from the tutorial so that the card would fit in a standard A2 envelope. I also used a corner rounder punch to give the shoulders of the suit a better look and added a small piece of card stock for the pocket square under the ribbon.

Supplies Used: Paper: Night of Navy,Brocade Blue, Background Paper (unknown); Other: So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon, Buttons, Corner Rounder Punch, Bone Folder

The shirt sleeve card was created so that my co-workers could all sign a card to give him as well. The same background paper was used so that the cards would coordinate with each other. The background paper was cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and attached to a standard A2 card front in whisper white. The cuff of the shirt sleeve measures 4 1/4" x 2 1/4" and is attached to a piece of whisper white card stock. Using a corner rounder punch, I rounded the bottom right side of the main card and the cuff portion. The stitching on the cuff was done with a straight edge and a fine tip marker and then attached to the main card with dimensionals. The greeting was placed vertically to represent the opening of the sleeve.

Supplies Used: Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Background Paper (unknown); Ink: Night of Navy; Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes; Other: Corner Rounder Punch, Word Window Punch, Buttons, Straight Edge, Dimensionals
