Paradise Shirt

Hello there my crafty friends!  Today's card is a bit of a quirky one!  I created a background using the Stitched Hills and Cloud die along the bottom out of milk card so it looked like sand.  Next I added some palm trees from the Island Paradise set.  I added a few other other beachy items like the Adirondack chair, some seagulls and a beach sign.  Next I cut the Pressed Shirt die out of white card.  I stamped it with flowers from the Floral Happiness set using distress oxides.  I cut two pockets and stamped them too and added them with foam.  I made a pair of flip flops to one pocket.  Using the small flower die from the Chloe die set, I made matching flowers and glued them on to the shirt like a Hawaiian lei.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 63/4" x
7 1/2" in size.  All for now Sue x

Lol hi Sue. What a great sample of summer, I can't help but smile and my first thought is what a brilliant card for 'our Sam' to make for Lyndon considering where they've just returned from ☺ if only I had your creative fun brain, I bought 'typical' shirt type card to use with my shirt die, you know the kind - striped cardstock, cardstock with dots, office or smart, and the plain, but I'd never thought of Hawaiian patterned shirts it's a brilliant fun sample Sue and great inspiration thank you for opening up that empty space where a brain should be. Have a fun day xxx

Hello Sue and all

I love this brilliant card ! I don’t have the shirt die (though I do have the tropical bits) and didn’t think I could use it much but should have known better - have to have it now, with summer just around the corner it will be fabulous for those male cards. So different and soooo clever. Thank you again for more amazing inspiration
Hugs
