For Fathers Everywhere

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there! If you're in need of a quick Father's Day card before Sunday, this is the card to try.  It took about 2 minutes to make this card after the initial learning curve on the first one.  I quickly made 3 more for my father, grandfather and my father-in-law.  I used retired DSP but you could easily use World Spectacular (#126897), Polka Dot Parade (#126902)  or Fan Fair (#126918).

Directions for Shirt: Use 4” x 5 ¼” sheet of DSP.  Score 5/8” from top of DSP.  Cut in 1” from both sides on the score line (cut from top to 1” & from 3” to bottom of DSP).  Fold top of DSP to the score line which forms the top of shirt collar.  

Directions for Tie: Start with a 4” x 4” sheet of DSP.  Place the side of DSP that you want to be your tie face down.  Turn DSP to form a diamond.  Fold corner to corner to form a triangle.  This creates a score line down the middle of the diamond for you.  Unfold.  Now fold DSP from one corner (left or right side) to score line which forms a point at the top and repeat with the other side; looks like an upside down ice cream cone.  Turn the DSP over.  Fold point down about 1” making sure the point is on the score line.  Fold the point up half way and then fold it up the rest of the way; forms the knot of the tie.  Unfold the last fold and put it behind the top of the DSP.  Adhere with adhesive.  Turn it over and fold the side of the tie towards the score line.  Use your bone folder to crease the folds.  Repeat on opposite side.  Add adhesive to triangles to keep sides of the tie from coming undone.  Add glue dots down center of the tie.  Attach tie to DSP shirt/collar layer.  Add dimensionals to collar and adhere to DSP.  Make sure the knot of the tie is under the shirt collar.  To add some bling to your shirt collar, poke a hole with a paper piercer through the shirt collar.  Add silver brads on shirt collar.  Attach the completed shirt and tie onto card base.  Done.

It may seem like a lot but once you've done it, it gets much easier.
