A Shirt Fit for a King!

Father’s Day is right around the corner! They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. I never know what to get, so something good to fill his belly and a cool shirt to cover it up sounds like a plan!

JFF June 2018 Challenge Shaped Cards 004E

I found a fun Hawaiian shirt card design by Tami White on Pinterest and just had to make one for myself!

I took Tami’s video tutorial one step further by making a set of cutting instructions. If you only want to make one card, use one sheet of 8.5 x 11 (white or light colored card stock) and ink, color and stamp your heart out. I like to mix things up a bit, so I recommend cutting a sheet of light colored card stock and a darker or patterned paper to mix and match the pieces for a fun “twofer” design!

Aloha shirt cutting instructions

These instructions are designed for cutting with a paper trimmer.

  1. Cut one sheet of 8.5 x 11 card stock vertically at 4.25.
  2. Place one of the 4.25 x 11 pieces horizontally in the trimmer and cut at 9, 8, and 5.5 inches.
  3. Cut the 4.25 x 2 inch piece horizontally at 4 and 2.
  4. Score the remaining 4.25 x 11 horizontally at 5.5 inches and fold. This will be the card base. If the card base is dark, you can cut a light colored 4 x 5.25 panel to adhere on the inside of the card for writing your message.
  5. Fold the ends of the 4.25 x 1 inch strip toward the center and at a downward angle for the shirt collar.
  6. The two 2 x 2 inch pieces will be sleeves.
  7. The 4.25 x 5.5 piece will be the card panel.
  8. Decorate the pieces as desired.
  9. Follow the instructions in the video for more detailed folding and placement.

I used the JFF Dolphins and Palms Silhouette stamp to decorate the front of my tropical shirt!

I added some faux stitiching, “buttons”, and a little rhinestone starfish for bling!
