"You're a Classic" is from my new "Tee Talk" set, one of my favorite greetings from it, so fun stamped on a "vintage" tee or by itself on a tag for practically anybody/occasion. This casual button down I made from the jersey in "Just So Sporty". This is the first time I've made a man's dress shirt from it, and I'm so thrilled with how it turned out! (and it was so easy to do!) To alter the jersey: ink up just the outside of the sleeves (omitting the stripes), the body of the shirt, and the inside vee of the collar (omit the outside of the collar). Then stamp onto DP. I found a really masculine print in the Basic Grey Ambrosia pack (this looks like most of the shirts in my DH's closet, invarious shades of course) Add a "w" on either side of the V neck for the collar points and a line down the middle to separate the front. A few little o's for buttons (filled in with the Inkssential pen) and you're done! I traced over the lines and filled in the inside of the neck with my C-3 Gray Copic to add a little shadow and keep it from looking flat.
Then I placed a Labels One die a quarter turn on my DP so I could have the mat print going on the bias. I die cut a smaller label out of one the solid Ambrosia prints for my greeting and punched a slot innthe top and bottom to thread a strip of another Basic Grey solid print, which looks just like brown leather, through. It reminded me of a belt and a buckle, so I cut a second strip of the "belt" and attached it to the first so that it could wrap around the whole card like a belly band. Finally I mounted it on the larger label in Basic Black and made the dots with a black pen around it, the shape and dots make me think of the pieced leather and holes on wingtips. The shirt is popped up on dimesnionals. This is probably one of my fave masculine card I've ever made (they're harder for me). I'm excited about using this look on more cards: birthdays, Father's day etc, in a milion different patterns.... :)
