CTMH Artiste Guy Shirt Card with Florentine

With 700 images on the new CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge there are tons of fun things to explore!  I've seen the origami men's shirt cards around but never really wanted to make one in a class setting as there were too many scores and folds.  CTMH took all the work out of this card now with Artiste as one of the many images is this fun men's shirt card base!  A quick cut, fold at the scores and attach the separate tie and pocket and you are done easy-peasy!

I cut this one at 5.5" - it fits in a 6x6 envelope as the shirt is fairly square.  I was just playing around with this cut so I could learn how to fold it and assemble.  The funny thing is I swear my Dad had a shirt with a similar pattern to this Florentine paper years ago!
One thing to note on this card is that you'll want to score along the BACK side to allow the card to open.  The collar is where the card attaches to the back so you'll need to open it along the back and press down so the front doesn't get creased.
It just doesn't get easier than this!  Visit tomorrow to see a fun way I used this shirt card with our new Dakota papers.

I hope you are as enormously excited about the new Artiste Cartridge as I am!  I love it so much I'm planning on announcing a special for the month of August when you purchase this cartridge through me!  Make sure you stop by on August 1st and I'll tell you all about it!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are having a fun and sunny day!

Paige, I love this card! And I love how you took a set of papers that I think of as very feminine and made it look masculine. Awesome job!
