Cricut Cardz - Challenge #79

I  really struggle with masculine cards - ESPECIALLY Father's Day cards, but that's the challenge this week at Cricut Cardz! Create a Father's Day card using any cartridge of your choice.

Boy was I inspired when I saw Mary's latest YouTube video! She used origimi to create the COOLEST little polo shirt! See her video HERE.

I decided to give it a whirl. She used a 4x6 piece of patterned paper, I increased mine to 6x9 (and made 2 cards using one sheet of 12x12 paper). Trust me, the thinner the paper, the better ;) And it only needs to be one sided!

I used this cool blue/black/white plaid from my stash. It came together so quickly and you don't need adhesive, but I used a bit just to keep it secure since it's a larger shirt, it was a bit more bulky.

I embellished my shirt with the tie from Simply Charmed cut at 2 3/4". Of course, the cut also came with an adorable face and stripes, but didn't really go with my shirt - so I kept it simple.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts, from a great "happy everything" stamp set. I really like how it turned out!

Be sure to stop by Cricut Cardz and check out what the rest of the design team created and link up your own Father's Day cricut cards ;)

Nice job! There have been quite a few tutorials out there on You tube this past month on making the shirts and yours came out wonderful. I saw the video about a month ago from a
stampin' up lady. I haven't done one yet, but you have inspired me
