For the men in your life, we can’t think of a better card to give a fan of golf than this funky shirt card. Download the free shirt card template and embellish as you wish, but if you need some inspiration, in this post we show you how to use your shirt card template to make this fab shirt and tie card.

You can really go to town with your favourite papers and embellishments to perfectly theme your look. For the bow tie on the card, simply trim down the bow until it fits neatly under the shirt collar for a truly sporting look!

We’re using the Hunkydory Tied With A Bow Moonstone die set to create the bows for this make, but if you don’t have this die set to hand, why not go ahead and create your own?
