Make an easy paper shirt card for the man in your life. I find it a great design to use for masculine cards.
The beauty of this paper shirt card is that you can customise it to suit your recipient's personality or the occasion. Imagine a relaxed, Hawaiian Island escape. The shirt becomes a Hawaiian flower print one! Imagine someone just being granted membership to his favourite club. The congratulations card has a shirt on it in the club's colours! It even has a logo on the pocket! Imagine a graduation or formal occasion. The shirt has a tie or a bow tie! Imagine you have a man who always wears a certain shirt and you find just the designer series paper in that pattern. You can make that shirt out of paper!
Customisation is only limited by the demands of the special occasion.
For this paper shirt card project, I started with a normal sized card base (10.5cm x 15cm, or 4" x 6") in Whisper White cardstock. Then I gathered the following supplies:
Here's what I did, step by step:
I hope you have a good time with this fun way to make a special paper shirt card for your favourite man. And I hope you show me what you make. I am sure I have not thought of all the special occasions this idea would suit (get it? Suit. I crack me up). Remember you can use this idea on a scrapbook layout too.
By the way, if you need instructions to make an Origami Shirt Card I found a great example of this on Pintrest for you.
For other types of masculine cards, I have some more ideas to help you.
