Craft for the Craic, June Theme Create something Masculine

Over at Craft for the Craic this month, we've chosen to have a Masculine Theme.

So this is my creation, The card is about A5 in size . As my starting point I made the shirt using a piece of white card, then made the waistcoat, jacket, tie and buttons, pieced it altogether and then attached it to the card

I had so much fun making the first one that I made a second one.

The part I found a bit fiddley was the tie, its made from satin ribbon and keeping it in place was a challenge
On the inside I created an opening to hold a gift card
So its a card and gift in one
Hope this might encourage some of you to have a go and we'd love to see your masterpieces on the Craft for the Craic blog, In fact pop by and see what the rest of the team have created and keep an eye out for a mid month post
As always -thanks for dropping by and see you again soon I hope :)
