My Time Made Easy Post Release Day - Blue Collar

Gosh, this month over at My Time Made Easy is so exciting!  There are so many cool templates to choose from and they are all easy to put together!  This one included!  It's called Blue Collar and it's the shape of a shirt!  How cool is that!  And it's roomy too.  I'll show you that in a little bit.

Here's the closeup of the template.  I started with my paper from the new Vintage Points Bright digital paper pack.  I paired it with Basic Gray cardstock.  Love these colors together!  I added some buttons to the collar to make it look like a button down and in the shirt pocket I added some paper to make it look like a handkerchief in it.  I also added some orange circles to the tie to match the tie on the card!  

This box and card are going to be for my father-in-law for Father's Day.  He always uses cotton handkerchiefs, so I always buy him a pack of them for holidays.  This pack contained nine of them, and they all fit into the box.

The card uses the same paper, scaled down a bit.  The image and sentiment are both from the new digital stamp set called Dad's Day to Relax.  I colored the tie in GIMP to match the paper.  The Happy Father's Day sentiment is stacked in the set, but I digitally cut it apart and made it linear so I could used this Spellbinder's die to cut it out.

The layout is based on this one from Card Positioning Systems.
Some of the design team is posting today, so stop by their blogs listed below to see what awesome things they've done with the new MTME products.
