My dad was known for his Western type shirts - the pearl snaps and bold patterns/plaids.  Even when out of fashion, he had my mom sew him some - lol.  Inspired by his love of bold patterned shirts, our love of vintage cars this card came to life.

Cutting a 4-1/4" by 3" strips of the Lullaby Designer Series Paper.  Snip the center top about a 1/2" inck down (for this version) and fold back the edges to create this shirt collar look.

For that dapper man in your life who likes his accessories - add the smallest adhesive backed Pearl Jewels to the tips.  Accent with the Bow Builder Punch bow and the largest of the adhesive backed Pearl jewels in honor of the buttons (or pearl snaps).
Myyyy Daddy loved the wide winged collar type shirts - this was a 1" cut on the top.

The Designer Series Paper is DOUBLE Sided and gives the coolest look for projects like this!  Coordinated colors and style but a large variety to play with!

Stamp the Guy Greetings sentiment 'To A Classic' in the Chocolate Chip ink on the Designer Series Paper.
With a variety of styles to our Designer Series Papers and the way you design this shirt - it can fit that special guy in your life!  The Classic car image from the Guy Greetings stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink on the Baked Brown Sugar card stock.  This In-Color will go away this year - snag yours while it's still here!  It's super warm and does look like yummy Baked Brown Sugar!!

(I love the Occasions Mini Catalog from the Bow Builder Punch to this stamp set - it's a winner of a catalog!!).

My 'old man' as he was often called.  Dad would soooo have sported a bold pattern at my wedding - if he was allowed, lol.  He would have soooo loved this hand-stamped card.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
