Another post today before my anniversary date day with the Hubs!

A colleague of my Hubs asked me to make a father's day card for her Dallas Cowboys fan boyfriend.  I have very little football stamps, maybe a small football stamp.  So, I had to do a little Google investigation on Cowboys logos and came up with making a tshirt withe the Cowboys star on it.  Well, then I realized, I don't have a tshirt die either, but I do have a onesie die.   I made a onesie to play around with and cut off the bottom part to a make a tshirt.  Then, I decided I wanted to inlay the shirt into the card.  This took a bit more effort.  I cut another onesie only this time, I stopped the cutting at the point where I had cut the shirt off to make just a tshirt.  Then, I took my trusty ole Xacto knife and ruler and cut across the bottom.  I now had an inlaid tshirt in the middle of my cardstock!  And, thus, I ran another onesie out of grey cardstock and this time just inlaid it behind my tshirt frame to hide the bottom part of the onesie. That helped the shirt stay secured better.  The bigger stars also have the smaller star inlaid in them.
