Happy Father’s Day Artiste Shirt & Tie Card

This weekend we will be honoring our Fathers!
Father's Day Card

You still have time to make this card before Sunday thanks to the Artiste Cricut cartridge. The card, tie and pocket are on page 75 of the handbook. I cut my card at 4.25” tall and it fits in a standard A2 envelope.

Here’s what the card base looks like when you cut it out. It is a top-fold card, so you are looking at the front of the card with the card back above it upside down.

To assemble, the first thing you will do is fold the base in half on the horizontal score line. You will notice two slits at the top of the card separating the collar from the shirt. Fold these down at an angle on the score lines.

Use a little adhesive to secure collar.  The stamping on the pocket is from D1560 Holiday Tags. I absolutely love this stamp set because it covers pretty much every holiday and has the great frames that can be cut using the Artiste cartridge.



***Important note: Both this stamp set and the Artiste cartridge will retire on July 31***

A nice finishing detail is the stitching which was drawn with a journaling pen. The tie and knot was cut from retired paper pack Timberline.
