Jeans Day

I made this card for a co-worker's birthday who always appreciates my handiwork.  When he got this one he remarked that I always make the "coolest cards".  He framed the card I gave him last year for his son's room - it was a Detroit Tigers themed card. 

Well this year I went for a jeans theme.  This is one of my favorite stamps from Judikins.  I stamped it using SU Buckeroo Blue ink on Buckeroo cardstock and stamped it twice.  The second one I used to cut out the pocket only and mounted it on the other stamped image and punched two brads at the top corners of it.

For the hankerchief, I used a SU paisley stamp on Real Red cardstock and embellished it with my white gel pen.  The twine belt was threaded through the belt loops by cutting small slits on each belt loop sides.  The word stamp is from AMuse.

I dressed up the inside by using another pocket with a tag insert that says have a great birthday.

Thanks for stopping by!
