Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making an SVGCuts Mens Shirt Card from their ’Summer Holiday’ Kit for my brother’s birthday.
Above is a screenshot of the files in Cricut Design Space – this is where I work on the color combinations of the pieces. Also, when using SVGCuts files, you have to remember to attach the scorelines. You can also change the scorelines from cut to score if you want.
Here is a pic of the card from the SVGCuts website. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any hawaiian-type paper, but I think any type of masculine paper would look good. Hey, I have some Tim Holtz cardstock . . .
These are the cutout pieces. And, yes, I used Tim Holtz cardstock from his ‘Crowded Attic’ paper pack, and also Close To My Heart cardstock in White Daisy for the envelope, and Slate for the shirt accents.
SVGCuts includes assembly videos for almost every kit on their website – which I watch all the way through before I start a project, and then again while I am assembling – stopping frequently as I go.
I used Thin 3D Foam Squares from amazon under the collar and shirt cuffs to add dimension.
Next I attached the front shirt layers along the outside edges.
Most kits come with a piece that you can personalize – this particular kit came with an interior piece that I wrote the sentiment on in the Soiree Lettering Grace Script.
The buttons are CTMH Epoxy Bubbles in a dark gray.
Here’s the finished card. The envelope was part of the kit and not one of my favorites. There was some overhang on the sides – weird – and I’m thinking an envelope liner in different cardstock would’ve looked better. I tried to improve it by inking the edges, creating a more grungey look – it just looked messy . . .
