After I did the ladies blouse card just in time for Mother’s Day, I
was asked if I could do a masculine version in
time for Father’s Day.
Recently I was also asked by a crafty friend of mine who lives in
Arkansas (sorry Pat, in the video I said Arizona! DOH!) if I’d check
out a video for which she sent me the link.
It was a great tuxedo card, but there were bits that were cut
freehand. I decided to check out a few other tuxedo cards
and I think I know why Pat particularly like this one!
All the others I found had four layers pf paper for the shirt
collar which resulted in them bunching up to a greater
or lesser extent!
I’ve put the link to the video Pat sent to me in the box below my video
in case anyone wants to check it out.
While working on my project,
I picked out some things I’d seen in other videos and put what I
considered the best features altogether in one video.
I haven’t called my video Tuxedos, mainly because I used such a light
colour – Gray Granite – for the video to make sure it was easy for
the viewer to see what was happening! I hope it worked!
That’s it from me today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

Very clever and very cute, Jan! Thank you for the painstaking directions in another great video. Love your Lemon Lime Twist blouse too! Very pretty!!
Wow! You went way above a regular card!! These Gent's Suit cards are great! I really like the way the shirt slides in and out. Thanks so much!

I have in the past made a card very similar to this Jan but I think yours is much better in its construction and there is a larger area for the greeting to be written too. Thank you for sharing this with us crafters. :O)
