Pressed Shirt

Hi bloggers!  I have had this idea for quite awhile now and finally have had a chance to make it into a reality!  The Pressed Shirt die is perfect for your men's cards, especially where they aren't into DIY or sports!  Let's face it, they are not always very easy to do, but this die set gives you the makings of a very bespoke card, but also allows you to be creative in how you go about it.  Use your patterned papers or background stamps to create a lovely decorative shirt, then add pockets, a tie or bow tie, sentiments, cell phone, pens, pencils, prize ribbons, you name it!  I have kept it quite traditional here with a striped shirt to start, but think Hawaiian shirts or even a more formal offering!  Leave a comment here if you like this one.  You can also use the Pinterest button too save some of your favourite cards or dies for later inspiration.  It has been placed at the bottom of each post for you.  See you back here at 6pm for the final post of the first day!

Hi Sue,

You are such a clever and creative lady. This is just what we need for all of those men that we need to make cards for and wonder what to do. Your card is super, all the tiny details that only you can do. Love all of the little accessories that are included with this set. Can't wait to see the other cards you have designed and that others will create using this set. It's fabulous.

See you at the next posting...............

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Does this die set come under the category of "essentials"? If not, it should do for all those pesky men's cards. What always makes me happy is all the little accents/extras to make the main theme work (or use as standalone, of course).
Fab card, needless to say.
Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue, a great set for those tricky male cards! Definitely a must have!

Donita Naylor said...

Neato! Looks like fun!
I would want to give that shirt a pegboard tie.
Just the ties in this set would make interesting cards for the same men next year. And the year after that, sunglasses. Then cell phones!
And the bow tie could be a girl's bow or a bow on a bouquet.

Versatile set!

Good morning Sue,
A beautiful card with these awesome dies, definitely a must have set . The fact that you can custom make the shirt by cutting out several times & cutting into them to make a shirt which the recipient already owns, as my Father-in-law owns a few mixed shirts & this will impress him to have a matching card.

Hi Sue, Great card and die. I'm glad you are doing more men's cards and dies. The grilling one and gardening ones were great as they related to my husband for once so had to have those. Can you also try lawnmowers and also computers as I can't keep making him gardening cards as he only will cut the grass. The boys play computer games but he just works on computers and isn't interested in anything else but TV and films and documentries. He used to do handyman but not any more. Thanks A
