Origami shirt

Good evening crafters,

I hope you are all well.  Tonight i want to share with you a card i made for one of my Paper Lane DT projects using the DCWV Collage Musings stack pack. When i saw this 'measuring tape' paper i knew i had to make a masculine card with it.  The origami shirt was made using paper from the same stack pack.  I made this card into a Birthday card but it could just as easily be a Father's Day card.

And a close up:


Paper: DCWV Collage Musings stack pack, brown card stock and cream card base
Inks: Tim Holtz (Walnut stain) distress ink
Sentiment: Stampin UP! birthday wishes
Tools: Close to my Heart distressing tool
Adhesives: glue stick, double sided tape and dimensionals
Brads & large paper clip

Thank you all for visiting.
