Farewell Party: Shirt & Tie Card

This is one of the cards we made at my Farewell Party's the same design as a card you've seen me make before (video tutorial HERE), but there's a new twist. Instead of an origami necktie, I imported an SVG necktie stamp from the digital download Oh Joy, A Boy! Ensemble into my ecutter software and it did all the hard work for me!

This card features several retiring items which are STILL available, some of them at a discount, but you should act fast before they are sold out. I used the Alhambra Jumbo Wheel for the pattern on the shirt. You'll need the Jumbo Handle to use this wheel, if you don't already have it. I used the Midnight Muse ink pad to ink the wheel. Unfortunately, the Midnight Muse card stock I used for the necktie is sold out. But, if you were to get the 2012-14 In Color Patterns Designer Series Paper digital download, you would have several lovely Midnight Muse patterns to choose from, to print out and cut into shape! And, you would never run out of paper, because you could just print more whenever you need it :-)

On the inside of the card, I used the You're Amazing stamp set--which is also retiring and still available, but only in wood-mount. It IS on SALE, though, so snag it while you still have a shot at it! With its vintage, neutral look, it's great for masculine cards. Speaking of neutral, I used Sahara Sand card stock for the card base, and that item is NOT retiring.
