Father's Day Cards

Happy Friday everyone!
I made these Father's day cards recently for OWH so I thought I'd share them with you today.
The shirts are just designer paper with a slit near the top on each side, folded in to look like a collar. I added some tiny button brads to look like the old-fashioned preppy shirts that had button down collars. The origami necktie was made with coordinating patterns and a little clip was added to look like a necktie. I found the origami pattern years ago on the barefoot stampers blog (Susanna Boyd), and I always seem to make a few of these for father's day every year. They were made with scraps of paper and some taken with teal, vintage cream and kraft cardstock. The sentiment is by SU!
Spring has sprung in PA!! It's a glorious 70 degrees here today and I feel WONDERFUL!! I hope you're having a fabulous day wherever you are too, and thanks so much for stopping by today!
