At the beginning of each year, I start working on greeting cards for the rest of the year. I like to have a supply of birthday and anniversary cards on hand. Today I’m sharing a card that’s perfect for someone of a “certain age.”

 

Here’s what I made:

 

Here’s what I did:

On a piece of Shimmery White card stock (CS) I stamped the swirl from the Tie Dyed stamp set in Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Emerald Envy, and Pacific Point – cleaning the stamp between each color. I tried to line up the stamp each time, then spin it a little, so I didn’t stamp each color on top of the others. I very lightly spritzed it with water, to give a more smeared, bled look.

I stamped the shirt outline from the Custom Tee stamp set in Crumb Cake ink over the Tie Dyed image, then cut it out with the T-Shirt Builder Framelits.

Once I was sure it was completely dry (you can use a heat tool to hurry the drying process) I used the Embossing Buddy on the surface, then stamped the word Vintage from the Custom Tee stamp set in Versamark Ink. I then heat embossed it in white.

On a strip of Whisper White CS, I stamped the words You’re So in Tangerine Tango. The words are from a larger stamp in the You’re So Sweet stamp set. I used a Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker to color just the part of the stamp I wanted to use.

I adhered the shirt to a piece of Tangerine Tango CS with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I glued this piece, and the stamped strip, to a piece of Party Animal Designer Series Paper (DSP.)

I glued the DSP to a piece of Crushed Curry CS, and glued that to a piece of Emerald Envy CS, and glued that to the Whisper White Thick CS card base.

Thanks for stopping by today, and Sweet Stamping!
