Another Cutting Cafe Shirt and Tie Cutting File/Template

Good Morning and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Here's the last of my Father's Day cards...I promise! It's for our good friend Eduardo (Gigi's husband). I used the Cutting Cafe's Shirt and Tie Cutting File/Template Shaped Cards but didn't use the tie. I hand stitched around the base, off center up the middle of the base and the collar, then added buttons to make it look like a sport shirt. Had I thought about it, I should have added some stitches for the buttonholes but didn't think of it till just now---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: Approx. 4"x5"
Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-Huge Father's Day Circle
Nestibilities: Circle
Accessories: Buttons, Embroidery Floss, Foam Pop Dots
Patterned Paper: DCWV-At Home
In this case, I used the patterned paper as the base card. The collar is part of the shirt and is cut as one piece then adhered to the inside left panel of the base card and folded over the top front to form the collar. The paper used for the collar, pocket, and layers around the sentiments is plain card stock from my stash and have no idea who's it is.
