DT Unik Hobby - T-Shirt Card

Just wanted to show you a card I made for a class I was teaching at Unik Hobby first in May ;)
The class' theme was folding and Confirmation.
Since I sometimes struggle to come up with some great ideas on cards for a bit bigger boys, I was so pleased to get this idea to my card from a tutorial at Create 4 Fun's Design Team Blog.
In the tut there's two tiny T-Shirts used as the main image on a card, so I "blew up" the size and made my own measurements, to create my actual card as a T-Shirt :)





You may see Create 4 Fun's "Get Shirty" tutorial here!

Size: 15 x 15 cm
Folding: T-Shirt Card
Embellishments: Tim Holtz - Film Strip Ribbon & Sprocket Gears, 7Gypsies - paper clips, rhinestones.

Thanks for peeking - have fun!

Kurs på Unik Hobby Torsdag 26. Mai
Teknikk: Bladgull-/sølv
Tema: Bryllupp

Jeg har desverre ikke hele kursopplegget klart enda, men
dette er noe av det utstyret du bør ha med deg:
Underlag
Flytende lim som tørker blankt
Dobbeltsidig tape
Saks
Limpute ("blekkpute" med lim)
Svamp/finporet skrubb (spør i hobbyforretning etter dette - er litt usikker på hva det heter, men brukes for å børste vekk overflødig bladgull/-sølv, og få det blankt)
Akrylkloss
Pinsett
Litt storpensel - helst flat, men rund funker også (f.eks 6/8)
 
 
Dersom det skulle være behov for å ha med noe mer, så legger jeg det til lista i Unik-bloggen senest onsdag.
Ellers er det fullt mulig å låne av meg - og sikkert andre!
Velkommen til kurs - jeg gleder meg til nok en kurskveld!
♥♥♥♥♥

Thanks for stopping here - have a great day!
