Start with a piece of double-sided paper that measures 5 1/2" x 12". Score it at 3" and 9" and fold toward the center as shown below.
Somehow I forgot (or deleted?) a photo of the next step. So just imagine these next two photos in your head. Score a line one inch from each side. Then cut a horizontal line 1 3/4" from the top of the card stock. This cut forms the sleeves.
Next, fold the bottom portion of that score line toward the inside of the "shirt" and keep the sleeves folded out like depicted in the next two photos.
Adhere the folded portions together so that the bottom part of the card stock stays folded down toward the center.
Be sure to add some adhesive inside the sideways "V" on the outer sides of the shirt as shown below.
Next, use a corner rounder punch to round the upper corners of the sleeves and the lower corners of the shirt. (My corner rounder punch went through all the layers of the designer series paper without a problem. I'm not sure if it would go through all four layers of heavy weight card stock.)
Next add a piece of neutral colored card stock that measures 3 7/8" x 5 1/2" to the inside of the card to cover up the folds and give you a smooth writing surface. (Oops! I forgot to take a photo of this step, too.)
Next, fold the collar down. I measured equal distances at the top, about a half inch from the center. Then I purposefully folded the right side a bit lower. (Had to check one of my husband's shirts to make sure I was folding the collar in the right direction.)
Then use a paper piercing tool and mat pack to pierce holes equally spaced apart, so the brads will be evenly spaced. (I used the Vintage Trinkets brads. You could also use buttons.)
This completes the basic card. When you fold the sleeves in, the dimensions of the card are 4" x 5 1/2." That will make the card fit into an invitation size envelope.

PS - I'm kinda surprised that I completed this tutorial today since the kids were home from school. So my fears of not being able to blog during the summer may be unfounded. However, I still have a sink full of dishes to do, LOL!
