Technique Challenge

Today I challenge you to make a gift card holder, but not just an ordinary gift card holder, here is a little Santa Coat(shirt) holder to spruce up a card or two for the gift giving season :)

Here is the card I made to show you how fun and addictive these little shirts can be.

Bonus Challenge: I challenge you to change up the Shirt, into something like a Christmas Elf, or Snowman type Shirt. If you take on this bonus challenge I'll draw a name for an RAK using Random Generator.

We can't wait to see what you end up with.
Happy Carding Ladies

Here are the instructions:

Be Careful!!!! NOT to glue the inside front of your shirt to the back, or your gift card will not fit inside. You also tack down the sleeves so they don't make your shirt stick up.

I used Tulip Puffy Dimensional Fabric Paint to do the trim on the coat. It's fun to use, just paint it on where you want it, let it dry for a couple of hours and then heat it with your embossing gun and 'poof' you have a puffy trim.

Here are the Design Team cards:

Aren't they just the cutest!! Can't wait to see YOUR creative cards for this challenge!!!!

I had so much fun doing this one. After I made the actual shirt I then cut papers to "dress" it up. I didn't like a plain shirt LOL
