Many Mates and Flowers for Every Season Shirt and Tie Card for The Spot Challenge #113

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my card for this week’s challenge over at The Spot.  The challenge is all about Masculine themed projects.  I created a fun little card that is perfect for Father's Day, that special man in your life’s birthday, or for an anniversary.  Or just because you want to give him a fun card.  So, knowing this I wanted to create a fun and special card for this week’s challenge.  So, I created a Shirt & Tie Card using new products from the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Here is a look at my card.  


I mean really what is more perfect than a shirt and tie for a card for a masculine event or holiday.  Did you know that last year there was about $12-16 Billion dollars spent on Father’s Day gifts last year and a large portion of that were on ties and dress shirts?  So, when not make a fun necktie and dress shirt card to give as well.  It really is not as hard as you may think.  On my card today I used a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut at 4 x 5 ¼.  At the top of my Whisper White piece I scored it at 5/8” and then lined it up in my trimmer and cut in along the 5/8” score line one inch on both sides.  Next I lined it up on my grid paper at 0 (with 2” on both sides of the line) and folded in the cut lines to the center.  This is how I made the collar of my shirt.  


To make the necktie I used a 4 x 4 score of the For Every Seasons Designer Series Paper.  I folded this in half from corner to corner to make a seam in the middle of the tie.  Then opened it back up and folded in the outside edges to the center line.  Then with a little more folding I created the floral tie that you see here.  I like pretty much any tie and I thought that this pack of paper would make some great ones.  I picked the one with the Misty Moonlight flowers since I planned on using Misty Moonlight Cardstock for my card base.  


I attached my tie to my shirt with a few Mini Glue Dots on the back side.  To secure the collar in place I used two Stampin’ Dimensionals on both sides stacked on top of each other.  The two stacked were the perfect height to make the collar stand up and fit the top of the tie under.  
I stamped the sentiment from Many Mates on the right-hand side of the shirt where the pocket would be in Misty Moonlight Classic Ink.  I know you are wondering how I stamped in Misty Moonlight since it is not out yet.  Well, we got a Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Spot in the May Paper Pumpkin Kit, otherwise I could not have.  


To finish off my card I used a couple of the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots as buttons on the collar.  I then attached the shirt onto my 4 ¼ x 11 Misty Moonlight Card base.  I added another piece of Whisper White cardstock to the inside of my card for a personal message.  Now my card is ready to go.  Thanks for dropping by today.  All the new products you have seen today will be available starting on Wednesday this week.  You will find a full list of all the supplies that I used on my card today in the Shopping List below.  Here is a look at the inspiration image from this week’s challenge.  We would love for you to play along with us over at the Spot this week.  You can click on the image below to see what the other design team members came up with.
