Suit-- Yeey I won JR Challenge

Hello Everyone

It's my co worker's bday on Monday. It is a guy card. I am really not crazy about them. So I have searched pinterest for ideas. The suit seems to be the most popular type of card. So I decided to make one.

Here is the card:

I have used JR background stamp to create the material texture. The card was easy to figure out the fold. The only place where I got stuck a little bit is on the collar of the shirt. I have couple do overs with it but then I just let it go. I have added faux stitching and pocket clock. I really don't remember what is the name of the stamp set that I got this clock from. I took that set apart and didn't write it down what is the make or model ( sorry) I've added buttons and the suit is done.

On YouTube there is a great video on how to tie a tie from paper. I followed it and the tie came out great from the first time ( yeey). I've added a pearl to it to "class" it up.

On the inside on the shirt I have added small pocket to insert gift card.

That's it.

The card is participating in:

  3. What a cleverly awesome idea (that I need to steal - lol)!! I've seen these as tuxedos but not in the plaid -- so cute! Thanks for sharing with us at JustRite Inspiration ;-)

  4. Wow, out all the beautiful cards you submitted for the JR challenge, this is my favorite. Such a cool idea. The plaid jacket is so fun. I'm with Sheri, I need to steal this idea.
