Man's shirt card - Challenge 73 A Tutorial

This week's challenge is to use the following 3 colours in a card:  Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, and So Saffron.
I first saw this card on Amy Celona's blog.  The shirt I made is very similar, changing the colours to go with challenge 73
It's fun and fairly easy to make, and makes a nice Father's Day card or son's birthday card.

Paper:  Bordering blue, Night of Navy, and So Saffron designer paper
Other: Night of Navy brads, stampin dimensionals

Method:
Materials:
.5 1/2 " bordering blue card stock scored at 1 1/4" from the top
.So Saffron designer paper -1 1/4 by 4 " for the tie
                                          -3/4" by 1 1/4" for the knot
                                          -1 by 1" for the pocket
                                                                . 1 by 1" Night of Navy for the handkerchief
                                                                . paper piercer and Night of Navy brads
                                                                . Stampin dimensionals
1.  Score card 1 1/4" across the entire top of the card
2.  Cut off only the inside portion of the card
3.  Make a slit 1" in on each side on the remaining 1 1/4 " panel
4.  Close the card
5.  Fold each cut side in on a diagonal to make the collar
6.  Secure the collar down with Stampin Dimensionals to give it height
Tie:
Cut a point at the bottom of the 1 by 4" so saffron designer paper.  Draw a line at a slight angle from the top of the point to the top of the tie and cut off.
Knot:
Fold  the 1 1/2 by 3/4" so saffron designer paper on the wrong side at a slight angle.  Cut off  the points showing over the top

Adhere the tie to the tie to the card front with a dimensional under the knot and the tie.
Pierce a hole at the collar points, and insert a Night of Navy Brad

Pocket:
Fold the corners of the 1 by 1" so saffron designer paper on the wrong side
Fold the 1 by 1" Night of Navy handerchief and insert in pocket
Adhere both to the front of the shirt.
