Create a fun and fancy tuxedo card with the Night at the Met Collection.
This card fits into an A2 envelope and features a black blazer which serves as a sleeve for the paper shirt adorned with a stamped sentiment.
Tuxedo Card Instructions
Score a 4-3/4x8-1/2" Black panel horizontally at 2-1/4 and 6-1/4".
Fold along the score lines to form an overlapping gatefold card. Close the card base and round the top corners with a punch.
Fold on the angled score lines to create the lapels. Adhere the seam of the gatefold to create a card sleeve.
Determine the width of the opening between lapels on the jacket. This measurement will determine how wide to make the shirt collar.
Place the shirt panel plain side up onto your work surface as shown below. Mark the width of the opening for the collar on the plain side of the panel, just below the folded edge.
Create a dart that ends at each mark with a craft knife and ruler.
Fold in each side of the 3/8" flap to form the collar of the shirt.
Trim any excess paper and glue the collar into place.
Round upper right corners to form the shoulder of the shirt.
Decorate the shirt with a fussy-cut tie, Jewel Stickers, and stamped images.
Slip the shirt panel into the blazer.
Cut three tiny rectangles from black paper. Adhere to the blazer with foam squares. Don't forget to nestle the little paper triangle handkerchief into the faux pocket.
This is such a fun, classy alternative to everyday card making.
