Father's Day Shirt & Tie!

Father's Day is just around the corner and I have a "handsome" masculine card to show you today. The necktie is actually an origami necktie and I found the tutorial here: Paper Craft Planet

EDITED: THE LINK ABOVE NO LONGER WORKS BUT I LOCATED A PATTERN HERE: 

BAREFOOT STAMPER TIE PATTERN

Although I used a "Happy Birthday" sentiment, this card can be used for various masculine celebrations by changing up the sentiment:


The card base is Island Indigo Cardstock cut at 11" x 4 1/4", scored in the center and folded.

My 2nd layer (differs from video) is Crumb Cake Cardstock cut 4" x 5 1/4". At the very top, score and fold-over your cardstock 3/4" from the top. Unfold and using scissors, cut a slit 1 1/8" long on each end. The center where you cut the strip stays intact. Fold over both ends at an angle to form the collar until both ends touch each other at the top.  Press in place with your Bone Folder. Glue and slide the necktie in place under the collar and glue the collar in place by using Stampin' Dimensionals:


I added Mini Brads to the collar and the star on my necktie before I glued everything in place. Hope you give this a try!
