T-Shirt Card for a Teenage Boy

Extreme Surfboard Card


Isn’t this card fun?

I needed a card for my nephew’s birthday this week and in my stash of many, many cards there wasn’t a single one that was quite right for a teenage boy. 

At our last Dreaming About Rubber Stamps team meeting, one of my downline, Tracy Raymond, shared a t-shirt card pattern with us. And I knew right away that this template would work for the card I needed.

Keep reading this post to see how to make a t shirt card. You won’t believe how easy it is!

I used the Extreme Surfboard stamp for this card with Wild Wasabi embossing powder and paper.

Sleeves for Tshirt Card


For the sleeves, I cut a 2" square of cardstock and adhered it to the card at an angle as shown.

Before adhering the sleeve to the card, I trimmed it with a 3/8" wide piece of paper at the bottom that matches the embossed image.


Neck for Tshirt Card


 The collar is a punched 2" x 1-3/8" oval of the same paper that was cut in half and added along the fold of the card.

On top of the paper, I added a narrow punched oval of Basic Black cardstock.

    The base is the traditional size – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ folded. To mail it, I used a 6″ x 9″ catalog envelop and folded back the flap before sealing.
