Hello, Welcome back! We are hopping again, this months theme was for the Guys/Boys. I made a tuxedo card inspired by all the dies from the well dressed set. I ended up only using a few though as the Pretty Perennials stole the show and needed the lapel a little bigger than the regular die. I started the card with a piece of white card stock, and matted it with half black card stock and and half lovely you DSP.
The next part was really trial and error, but I used the lapel die as a template and made a bigger version by tracing and cutting outside the traced lines. I used the same method for the collar. The finishing touches to the lapel were to add a strip of black ribbon and to use the suspender die to make a pocket.
To make the flower, I used the pretty perennials dies and the new in colors. Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent.
For the pocket square, I used the collar die in Pale Papaya and snipped it into 3 pieces. To finish it off, I put basic pearls on each of the flowers, used the button die, and then placed them on the shirt. To help with the proportion of the buttons I then outlined them in basic black ink.
I didn’t end up adding a sentiment to the card front as it really got lost with the rest of what’s going on. I thought this would be a great design for a card for prom, or for a groom or groomsman. Thanks for taking a look! I know you will enjoy the rest of the Krew’s cards as well!
