Father's Day Suit Card

It's nearing Father's Day so here's some inspiration to help inspire you to create cards for that special occasion or even celebrate a birthday for that special man in your life.


For the month of May, you'll find all of the Basis Cardstock on sale so now's the time to stock up and save!!

Let's get started with today's project.
Start by cutting a 6"x8 1/2" card base out of Navy Blue Basis Cardstock and score according to the template shown above.

Create the white shirt by cutting a 6"x4" White Basis Cardstock, a 6"x1" button panel and a 2 1/2"x1 3/4" rectangle that's been cut from corner to corner.  Layout your shirt design and adhere using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.

Trim off the excess collar pieces and cut several buttons.  Adhere the buttons to the button panel using Mini Glue Dots.

Adhere the shirt panel to the inside of the left suit portion of the card front.

Cut a large and small button out of Navy Blue Basis Cardstock.  Layer them and adhere to the front of the suit.  This is what it will look like when closed.

Cut the inside panel measuring 3 1/2"x 5 1/2" out of White Basis Cardstock and stamp or handwrite your sentiment.

Create a bow tie using an envelope punch board to complete the card and a belly band that slips over the card to keep the card closed. 

Present your card in a coordinating Navy colored Basis Envelope.
