Hello 12 X 12 Cardstock Shop Fans! Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility! I am here today to share a tutorial on a Father's Day card I put together. I hope you enjoy it and maybe you can gain some inspiration for that father figure in your life!
Here is the finished card we are going to make today. It is a pair of overalls with a flannel shirt. Although you can use any pattern paper to make a shirt with. This just reminded me of my dad. When picking your shirt paper, keep your dad in mind and pick what will suit him.
Using a paper trimmer, cut your skin tone down to 7" X 10 " piece.
Score on the 10" side at 5". Now here is where a lot of folks make a mistake, they want to fold into the score valley. That makes your card stock peel and tear, at the fold. Instead, you want to score and fold TOWARDS the MOUNTAIN of the score and use your bone folder to burnish your score line down securely.
Cut a piece of Denim card stock or paper to 5" X 7" .This is the back side of my denim.
Cut 2, 1" wide by 4" long stripes for the straps of the overhauls and set aside for later.
Cut a rectangle for the pocket of the overhauls in the denim paper/card stock at 2 1/2 " X 3". Set aside.
Using a self healing mat and any kind of sharp pick, (I use a quilling pick I bought from Hobby Lobby.) prick holes for faux stitching around the edges of the overhauls, pocket and straps. I tried to keep my holes at around 1/8 " apart. Using a deep blue or any color that matches your "fabric" paper , use a gel pen to dot the holes you made in the paper to highlight them. To finish the stitching take a white gel pen and connect all the dots together like stitches. (See pictures that follow.)
Back to the pocket, on the 2 1/2 " side cut the bottom 2 corners at an angle where you are cutting off triangles. Make sure to use a ruler so these are straight. (please note the stitching in this photo.) I found at this point, it was easiest to stamp my sentiment on the pocket. I used Momento Luxe, Wedding Dress, White to stamp my sentiment for on the denim, it seemed to show up the best.
Cut a 3 1/4" X 5" piece of pattern card stock for a shirt. This here is a plaid from the Echo Park LumberJack Collection. Make a small cut at 2 1/2 " from each side of the 5 " side. This will be the neck of your shirt. Fold the slits back into triangles.
If the other side of your card stock is a different print than your shirt side, cut two triangles to fit the folds and glue them onto the slits as shown.
