Project 32 of 365: Father’s Day Suit June 17, 2010

The other day I was searching all over to find a tutorial on those oh-so-cute shirt and tie cards when I ran across something even better…A tutorial for a card front that looks like a suit.  It is PERFECT for Father’s day!  I made this one for my Father- In-Law (still trying to come up with a card for my dad).

In this card I also incorporated the colors from the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 34.  (Can you believe that Dusty Durango and Rich Razzleberry look good together??!!)

I think this turned out just perfect.  While my father-in-law dresses nice he is not a “formal” guy, so this more casual card, with the off-beat colors is such a better fit!  I’m really liking this one and I am likely to make more “suit” cards in the future.
