Artiste in August - Any Shape Day

Welcome to the 24th day of the Artiste in August Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop and  Pamela O'Connor is the blog in front of mine.  We are a group of Close to My Heart Consultants who are making a different project each day using our brand new Close to My Heart Exclusive Cricut Artiste Collection.  Each day we will be focusing on a different shape or box that you can cut out with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.

I am back!  And I am excited that it is Any Shape Day at the Artiste in August Blog Hop!  I have been totally entranced by this Man's Shirt card found on pg 75 of the Artiste Handbook.  I used the La Belle Vie paper pack because I liked the striped "oxford" look to it when I cut it out into a shirt.  I used the darker La Belle Vie Mauve cardstock in the paper pack for a tie because I just love it and I could see my husband wearing a tie this color.  I cut this card at 5.25" and it can easily fit in a 5.5" x 5.5" envelope or a 6" x 6", both of which I have. What I do like about the Artiste Cartridge is that I can make the envelope as well and each card comes with a corresponding envelope that you can cut out.

There were no instructions with this pattern so I had to eyeball it and figure out how they folded it.  I am hoping that I did it correctly.  I folded the card in half and then noticed that there were actual cuts where the collar was made.  Then if I looked closely I could see where the collar folded over.  I made a decision to fold the collars from  both sides forward so that the back side of the patterned paper would not show.  Then I adhered the collar and tie to the shirt with my Bonding Memories glue pen.  Worked great!
