The Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper is the perfect design to create a ‘Hawaiian’ shirt – great for a masculine card. This design was really handy as I needed two masculine cards last month for family friends of ours. I did one in a portrait orientation and one in a landscape.
The shirt uses a piece of DSP measuring 4″ x 6″ which means you can get 6 ‘shirts’ from a piece of 12″ x 12″ paper. There are a number of suitable designs within the Tropical Oasis DSP pack for making these shirts.
I’ve used the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder for the front of both cards – this is a design that can be used either orientation as I’ve done with these cards and you could also use either side of the design.
For this card I’ve trimmed a strip off the front so you get to see the inside image. The sentiment is from the ‘Label me Bold’ set inspired by Million Sales Achiever Jasmin Schulze. This set has 5 background images and 7 sentiments.
Here’s a close up of the shirt and the design of the new embossing folder. The ‘buttons’ are created by colouring some pearls with the Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.
For the insides of both cards I used the palm tree image colouring them using the ‘direct to stamp’ technique again with Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers. If you haven’t tried this technique I encourage you to give it a go.
Well that’s all for tonight – until next time …
