Tuxedo

Good Morning! I cased this cute tux card here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/971533?cat=7477&si=tux%20card


It looked like fun to make. She used it for a prom invitation, but I think it would be useful for weddings too. It would be great for a grooms dinner invite, or a thank you to the groomsmen for being in the wedding. I wonder if there is a bride pocket card? Maybe I'll have to try to make one!

Here's what it looks like opened:



The pocket measures 11 x" 4 1/4" , scored at 5 1/2" and at 9 1/2". Fold the top down and adhere a 1 1/2" piece of card stock. I used a white piece of the specialty SU paper from the last catty. The shirt piece is 8 1/2" by 4 1/4" scored at 3 1/2 inches. Then I used my ruler to cut the pieces off to make the v shape. I used my scorepal to make the lines on the shirt, added some pearl buttons and a bow. That's it!
