SSSD Different Kind of Card/Shirt card

Hi ladies. This months Different Kind of Card swap on the SSSD is a Shirt card. Use a piece of paper you don't care about for your sloppy copy.  I have used double sided paper as that is what I had. Only one side will show so it is not necessary.  Start with an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper and fold it in half lengthwise.

                                                 Fold in each side to match the center fold.

Flod back each center edge as pictured. No special measurement. It will be about 1/4 of the way down.

                                  Now turn it over with the top folds now facing the bottom

                                                       Fold the top end down and inch.

                                       Flip it over and fold the top corners toward the center.

                                          This is what it will look like. These are your collars.

                       Now fold the bottom fold up slipping it under your collar and creasing the bottom.

                                                 Add your sentiment to the inside of shirt.

Decorate any way you want. Use buttons, brads for buttons, a tie, a pocket, add cuffs and collar with a different paper.

You also can make a small size by using a 3 1/2 x 5" piece of paper. The only thing that changes is the 1 inch fold that forms the collar is a 1/2" fold. Add it to your card front.
Have fun with this ladies. You can make one in less than 2 minutes after you have figured out the folds.

I needed a card that I could make in one night for a nephew and came across your shirt, I made it in one sitting just now, its great! Its funny too, I used a black marker and "sewed" stitches on the pocket, around the color and around the whole shirt! Looks like a cowboy shirt now! I'm going to make a really cowboy looking one now! Thanks, this is fun and it came in handy for a masculine card! Louella
