Tee in a Tin

How fun would it be to present a little necklace while showing the recipient how gorgeous it will look when she's wearing it? Dress up your tee with a real piece of bling she can wear any time!

The jewelry card and tin label were made with my "What's in Your Tin? 1" set. Sentiment stamps are also from the "Little Tees" set, I snipped the "have a nice day" apart so I could fill in "super" "birthday" and stack them to fit in 1 1/4" circle punch. After adhering your shirt to the card(slightly offset here to make room for "birthday" but you can also fit it by angling it, make a slit just above each shoulder and thread your necklace though. I found this little charm and ball chain at Hobby Lobby, I chose this little painter's palette it to remind my friend what a fabulous artist she is. :)

Is this paper not the most gorgeous thing ever?! I used a floral page of Basic Grey "Sultry" for my shirt and top and bottom of my tin, and a pink distressed page from the same pack for the mat on the necklace card.

If you like the proportions of this card and the idea of tucking some little cards away in a tin, you might consider joining the swap Joanne is coordinating in the Gina K SCS forum, details here! Groups have filled up fast, but if there's enough interest (and you beg!)I'm sure Joanne can work something out (if not now then another round later maybe)! ;)

    I have another idea for you... You know how you made that one card w/ all those different purses on the shelves and it looked like you were window shopping? Perhaps you could do the same w/ the t-shirts?

    Just a thought!
