Origami Shirt Fun!

The other day I made this origami shirt card for the TLC119 on SCS but I never did get a chance to upload it. I figured a surfing/beach shirt card was in order for the area I live in. I keep mentioning I live in the sticks but I live in one of the most beautiful parts of the Great White North (aka Canada). Every year we get 1.5 million tourists in the area to see this:

So as you can imagine, when I saw the challenge I knew exactly what DP I was going to use and how I wanted this card to turn out. I just had to add Surf Ukee (short for my town's name) with the Karen Foster snap stamps. I figured this card might appeal to some of the tourists that visit our local craft fairs. After all who doesn't want a surf shirt card? *wink*

Fun in the Sun Card Recipe:

Paper: Whisper White, Summer Sun, Cranberry Crisp, DP (Karen Foster and Misc)
Ink: Noir Black (Palette), Summer Sun Craft, Cranberry Crisp Classic
Stamp Set(s): Beach (Pink Cat Studio), Snap Stamps (Karen Foster), Best Blossoms
Accessories: Coluzzle, Circle Template, Cuttlebug (Provo Craft), Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder (Provo Craft)

Note: This card is 5.25x5.25

Stay tuned tomorrow for one of my most FAV bella/fella cards. I had a proud card maker moment when I designed that card and I have been chomping at the bit to share it with you.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

I've made some of these little shirts for FathersDay cards - they are soooo sweet. I love the Hawaiian print on yours & the cuttlebugged background. Great design!

wow those are amazing photographs. The card is super cute and I think that it would work really well with the "Do the Hula" set.

Thanks again for the ideas

Very cute shirt card! I need to make "the shirt", I've made it before with a full sheet of paper, never mini. I keep seeing it, I need to try it! Thanks for your inspiration.
