Fourth of July Shirt Card

Yesterday I recalled that the Fourth of July is coming up really soon and I had no cards made for the shut-ins. And since all the shut-ins are guys I made up cards that sort of resemble a shirt and tie ensemble. I hope it will pass off as such at any rate. LOL

Oh, and I found the dies that were lost which is a good thing. I stuck them in a small pizza box and inside a drawer. All of a sudden I recalled where I had put them. So miracles do happen.

Some of the shirt was done with dies and some with hand cutting. And, I used the brushes to blend on some color so that the elements resembled a shirt somewhat. Oh, and I used the Plaid Maker stencil to do a red, white and blue plaid which I decided would work for a handkerchief in the pocket. I know the neck of the shirt is not right but I had no idea how to make it look any better so I just left it alone. Anyway. I made several with this same design. So now I can send them out tomorrow.

Supplies used:
Cheapo Dies Patriotic Bow
Cherry Lynn Designs-Buttons
Pocket-Quick Cutz Nesting Tag
Artplortions Plaid Maker Stencil
Gingerbread of Arlington, SD-Sentiment (no longer in business)
Crafter's Companion Glue Pen
Gina K. Designs Connect Glue
Inks-Gina K. Designs
Life Changing Blending Brushes from Picket Fence Studios
Card Stock from my stash from years ago.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Dies R Us Challenge-Summer
Scrapy Land Challenge #116

Well that does it for me this week. I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Until next time take care.

God bless,

Great cards, Verna! Love that you used the awesome bow tie die and fixed it to your shirt, which turned out marvelous, IMHO! So happy you found your dies too! :o)

Cute! I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one Nation, Under God, indivisible and justice for all. Did I say it right? Been so long since I've said the pledge, I wasn't sure it was still up there in the ole brain. smile!
