Dress shirt card

This is a card from the May stamp camp. Colors are certainly celery, whisper white and SAB designer series paper. The tie is made with a 3 inch and 1 inch square of paper. The pocket is made with the small tab punch. The only stamping is the saying stamped on the inside. They had a choice of Father's Day or birthday.
additional instructions: The card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Cover a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 whisper white with a piece of designer paper that is the same size. To make the collar - mark 1" down from the top and cut in 1 1/2". You are cutting in a little farther than you need for the fold but this allows you to round the 'shoulders' with the corner punch. Fold the top pieces down for the collar using glue dots to adhere. To make the tie draw a diagonal line from the upper left corner to the lower right corner. Be sure and draw the line on the wrong side. Turn your square so that the line is now vertical - going up and down. Now fold each point on the side to the center drawn pencil line and the fold again for a double fold. The bottom should be wide - the bottom of the tie and the top part should be narrow - or the top of the tie. Take your one inch square and fold to opposite points to the center. Wrap this around the top of your tie for the 'knot'.
