Formal Attire Card

Hi bloggers!  I just love how the Pressed Shirt die set can be used for so many looks and occasions!  See how easy it is to turn it into a formal card for a wedding or anniversary card in today's video offering.

 The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, what a brilliant card design, love the very formal look you have created with this die. Definitely a must have die set. Off to watch the video. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Morning ☺

Very smart and sophisticated. There's something about a man in a nice suit with crisp shirt and tie if you get my meaning lol add a lovely aftershave and I'm totally floating lol. Anyway, could two identical shirts be made, with one overlapping the other similar to shadowing and be used for a civil ceremony for the guys ? Although I have this die I've not used it yet but just a thought ?
I've bought my shirt type card ready just not put the two together maybe the video will give me the kick start i need so thank you. Air smelling very smoky here due to the fires on the moors and we're some distance away so it must be awful for those with farmland there.
So I'll send love and hugs and hope your day is a good one xxx

Good Morning Sue and all
What a stunning card , very elegant for a mans cards. I have been playing with the shirt die and using shaving foam paper I made for holiday shirt. So much you can create with this collection. thank you for doing the video.
Steph you can smell the smoke near me as well and I am a few miles away, fingers crossed it will come to end.
Crafty hugs and well wishes to all... Wendy

Nina Spear said...

Hi Sue
Ooooh, a mans card! Great, as I have problems with the men in my life (not really, just their cards) xx

Donita Naylor said...

This looks like so much fun! I love how you get the look of pleats just from scoring glossy stock. And the cummerbund in black the same way! He looks so handsome in that bow tie. For two grooms, maybe one could wear the bow tie and the other the regular tie.

I'd like to see someone do the Hawaiian shirt. Or a vintage one like Charlie Harper used to wear. Would you just cut the collar open when there isn't a tie? Oh, paisley would be good, too.

Enjoy your Thursday!


Donita Naylor said...

PS, I just saw Wendy's post about how she cut shirts from paper she did with shaving foam. This is the one time you'd want the scent of shaving foam on a card!

Hi Sue,

Oh my word!...he's off to a posh do isn't he..there's something about a man dressed up to the nines that sets this female's heart a-fluttering - maybe because most of the time they're dressed up like the dog's

Hi Sue, this is a great card and isn't it how we would like to see all our menfolk dress even if only occasionally. Love the way you created the shirt front and cummerbund just from glossy card and a scoreboard, very well thought out.

Pauline Austen said...

It's the detail that you put into your dies which makes them so wonderful. Who would have thought that a man's shirt die could cause so many fluttering hearts in your lady Wilsonets. WOW! As it's the 'prom'season at present, this would make a great card for the male escorts as a little 'Thank you' card Tec. Hugs xx Pauline

Great card and die set. I have this and used it to make my father in law a Father’s Day card, but just used plain blue foundation card. Seeing this sample I will have to be more adventurous I think.
