My dad wears an old vest and even though I've given him new ones, he loves his old one. He doesn't wear a bow tie, but I thought he'd get a kick out of this card anyway. My card is made of 3 pieces (bow tie, shirt, vest) cut from 1 sheet of letter-size paper on 80lb cover stock. It was fun to shade the bow tie and give it depth while really giving a 3D shape; it also keep the vest flaps down when the card is closed. I've given details to buttons and stitching, both a cinch to print. I've written my message under the shirt, which is removable. The card will stand when the vest is open. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Cutting with scissors and/or x-acto knife SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 3 x 3 inches
