C084 Father's Jacket

This has nothing to do with Magenta stamps but thought it was too cute not to share.

Prepare card by folding 81/2 x 51/2” black cardstock in half. Crease fold with a bone folder. Set aside.

Computer generate the Happy Fathers Day phrase on white cardstock. Cut to 4 x 51/4”. Glue to card front and set aside.

Cut jacket and lapels from blue cardstock. Glue lapels to jacket – pay attention to what is the top. Trim the lapels to match the jacket if necessary. Glue to white jacket square – again, pay attention to what is the top. Trim if necessary.

Using a black pen, outline all the pieces to give them definition. Cut neck tie and knot from suitable wallpaper. Glue tie in place. Trim if necessary and set aside.

Outline the shirt collar pieces with a black pen and glue on to the tie. Add the knot.

Mount on to black cardstock and trim close. Glue to the card in a pleasing manner.

Found this pattern in the June 2004 Scrapbooks Etc. magazine page 131.

First taught on May 4, 2004.
