Fathers Day Tie Card

Years ago, someone taught me how to make a tie....on a card that is!  This was the second card I made on my weekly Make a Card Monday on Periscope (live streaming app). I figured with some new cardmakers out there, they probably had not seen this fold.  And when paired with a shirt, makes a great fathers day card.

I found this image on Pinterest but it had no measurements, so I had to remember...and guess! And I made a slight modification.

I started out with a 4 x 4 piece of DSP (Designer Series Paper).  I needed a "manly" sheet, which I found in the Natures Poem DSP pack.  

And I followed the steps, except I did not do the first fold as I didn't want a crease in my tie. So I drew a line where the first fold should go. (Image 1).

Ok I was just going to describe how I accomplished this, but it seems I had to make a video.  It was taking too long and I couldn't type what I was actually trying to show you.

Measurements for Card (Products used listed below):

Card Base - Night of Navy 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
                   You will need to cut down 1" from the top, then from 0 to 5 1/2, then from 7 1/4 to 8 1/2
                   Video explains
Tie - 4 x 4 DSP (or as suggested in video you could go up or down with the size)
Inside Mat - Whisper White 4 x 4 1/4
