SCS has been so inspiring ~ I'm finally sharing my uploads with all of you ~ gallery started 8-29-06!
This is a take off on a vest on SCS earlier this summer, but I am a seamstress, so tweaked it for a more realistic armseye shape.
BG stamp the vest and shirt "fabrics" first. Stamp the shirt and pockets on both sides as you will fold part of it over.
Armseyes: word window punch, extend longer to the shoulder
Shirt, neck opening and front lower V: 1-3/8" square punch
Shirt collar: Snip the shirt square from one corner to almost the middle and fold down the collar points. Secure with a dot of crystal effects after tucking the tie underneath.
Tie: loop the grosgrain over a length of twine, snip shorter and tuck under the collar, secure with CE.
Pockets: tag punch, fold over the top "trim"
Buttons: spaced with mat pack guide (or that terrific spacer at the top of the order form ~ make sure you include one in every customer order and tell them about your free gift to them...), buttons would be great with brads or 1/8" punched circles if you really want to putz with it!!
I made 35 of these for convention II swaps and the marker buttons were much faster!
Enjoy a great men's card!
