Another tie

Not satisfied with my earlier cards and inspired by designs that Ann H. posted on Facebook, I tried an additional tie example. This one I love. I like the colors a lot better. I am such a sucker for the lime and olive greens and anything in between!

I folded the tie from a 4" square of MM paper. I used a star brad from Colorbok. The green cardstock is American Crafts and the background patterned paper is from Pebbles. The pocket is 2 and 3/8" tall with a corner cut off. The collar started as two 1" high rectangles and I just laid the right sides together and sliced off the corner into a point. Glossy Accents for collar buttons. Edges inked with studio G green ink.

I thought about adding a pocket square with a sentiment, but decided not to go there quite yet. Perhaps if I do another installment of this card. :)


  1. Kathryn, as is said on FB...I REALLY love this variation you have come up with. The collar would definately be my biggest challenge but I think I will give it a try. Thank you for sharing and posting on FB. I have become a new follower :)
