Denim Shirt Card - CAS-ual Fridays #41 Challenge

This week at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog the challenge is 'Jest for the Pun of it' - to use a pun or a sentiment in a silly way to create a joke on your CAS creation.  I love pairing this sentiment with my man's shirt stamp and I haven't inked them up in a while.  I bought the shirt years ago, it's one of the oldest stamps in my stash but I came across the sentiment stamp on eBay quite a while after getting the shirt and I just had to have it as the two go perfectly together!

My shirt is made with a soft chambray denim from an old shirt of Owen's that was going to be thrown out a long time ago.  I saved the old shirt for stamping on, I love that I can get an actual fabric shirt!  I cut a piece of double sided adhesive paper, attached one side to some white CS and after stamping the shirt onto the denim, I cut the image out roughly, peeled off the backing sheet from the adhesive paper and smoothed the stamped fabric piece onto it.  I then trimmed the shirt closely and popped it up on the white panel.  I used a ticket corner punch on the corners of the white panel and placed silver nailheads on the black mat.  After stamping the sentiment I added 3 die cut buttons, popping the centre one up.

Inside the card I've glued a strip of denim patterned paper and added 3 more buttons.  I placed a larger button on the envelope flap to finish off.

It looks like those stamps were made for each other!!! Kelly xx
(p.s, I tried the colour blocking with clear blocks first but couldn't seem to get the second colour to stamp completely when masking the first one) xx
