I find that making cards for men can be somewhat of a challenge. April's new Free Spirit - Boy set is like all of the WMS sets that you have come to know and love; it's packed full of a variety of images and sentiments for every occasion. And there is an additional sentiment set being released, too, which makes this set even more versatile!
For this card I wanted to use this great hibiscus flower stamp. I don't know why, but the thought of a t-shirt popped into my head. I was lucky enough to find one for my Silhouette digital cutter online at the QuicKutz store. I made a few modifications and cut it out of white cardstock. I stamped and colored my flowers with Copic markers. To make it really look like a shirt, I used my Copic marker to add "ribbing" around the sleeves and neck, then used a perforating tool to add "stitching" around the entire shirt. I used a gray Copic marker to add some light shading to make the whole thing stand out against the card. I really like how it turned out:
