At my last downline meeting we decided to make masculine cards for our card swap. I think this is an area that many stampers have a hard time with. This was an easy one for me because I just copied this great swap card that I received from Connie Babbert in one of our recent Control Freak swaps.
Isn't that perfect for the swap theme? The shirt part of the card is just a piece of Whisper White card stock that is scored seven times. Simply place the card stock in the paper scorer and score it every 1/4" starting at 1 1/4" and ending at 2 3/4". In other words, score it at 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 1 3/4", 2", 2 1/4", 2 1/2", and 2 3/4". Very simple. I pierced three holes down the middle score line and inserted brads for the buttons.
The cummerbund part of the card is a piece of Basic Black card stock that measures 4" x 1". It is also scored every 1/4" across the width of the card (1/4", 1/2", and 3/4"). The three score lines are difficult to see in the photo.
The triangles for the shirt collar are from the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die. The bow tie is made from the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the 1/2" Circle Punch. All of the collar and bow tie pieces are attached to the card base using dimensionals.
It's a very quick and easy card to make. Simply change the sentiment and it would work for a variety of occasions for the men in your life. Be sure to check out the other masculine cards and projects that I've shared on my blog previously. Thanks for stopping by!
