Palette O' Prints Father Shirt


I saw this cute card my friend JulieHrr made with money over on her blog and it reminded me of some cards I made a few years ago with that shirt fold. Then.... I got to thinking and spotted the awesome Palette O' Prints pad sitting on a pile on my desk. I hope the ric rak isn't too girly, but I just couldn't help myself... it matched so well.

The black piece is a scrap I also found on my messy desk that was ran through the Cuttlebug with the swirls embossing folder. The ribbon is May Arts (startlitstudio), the mini brads are from Queen & Co. Everything else is from Stampin'Up!


Here is the recipe:

Stamps
: Stamp of Authenticity, All Year Cheer II, All in a Row.
Paper: Palette O' Prints Designer Paper, Rose Red, Basic Black, Certainly Celery
Ink: Basic Black, Timber Brown Stazon
Other: Round Tab Punch, Mini Brads, May Arts Ribbon, Cuttlebug, Embossing Folder, Scor-Pal (www.scor-pal.com), Tag Corner Punch (for the ends of the tie)
©Stampin'Up! 1990-2007

Okay... now I'm going to show you how I made the shirt. SUPER EASY... especially if you own a Scor-Pal! ;) I've been asked by some of you how I like the Scor-Pal, and I tell you, I honestly LOVE it! It's light weight, easy to store (I keep it right at my feet slid in between my trash can and my desk) accurate, and best of all, I don't lose the little tool because it fits in top all snug and neat. Oh, and you can't push too hard and rip your paper either! I really can't say enough about it, and that Diana... she's da bomb. :) If you are a scoring nut like me... you NEED a Scor-Pal.

Your are the bombalischous Toot queen!!! Did I already tell you that I LOVE YOU!! This is so cute!!! But can I ask a favor...please stop showing all these cool things with the Scor-pal thing!!! I don't have one!!

What a super duper cute idea for a Father's Day card!! I don't have a Scor-pal (yet) but I may have to give it a try anyway with my old fashioned scoring blade on my paper trimmer. :-) Thanks so much for sharing the great tutorial!

I skipped the SCS challenge today because I hate reading directions on folding. Your pictures make it so much easier that I may now even attempt it. I love your paper choice. It's perfect and I don't think it looks girly at all.
