Happy Thursday!! OK - before I get into the deets on this card - I want you to know that no one in my household is walking around missing a pocket on their jeans - LOL!! This card is for today's Ways to Use It Challenge over on SCS - you can view the challenge here - today's challenge is ways to use fabric. I had grand plans to piece a fabulous pair of fabric pants onto one of my Hannas - but the thought of cutting up one of my favorite shirts for the sake of creativity -well - I reached for an old pair of my DS's jeans instead - LOL!! We recently cleaned out closets - and while we do donate most everything that my kids outgrow - there are a few things that have stains and holes in places you can't really explain - so those get thrown out - and if you have boys - you know what I mean - LMBO!! So how about salvaging the pockets from those jeans you're gonna throw out to make scrapbook or card embellies?? - you could tuck some journaling in there on a scrapbook page or a gift card on a card - the possiblities are endless. For this card - I just cut around the pocket to get it off the jeans and then adhered it to my card with glue dots. I went with a western feel to my card to match the denim - I colored and cut out Horseshoe Riley from Hanna Stamps and stamped a Cat's Pajamas senitment on my die cut stars. I did some distressing on the tan cardstock pieces with Cat's Eye Chesnut Roan ink. I added some hemp twine to some of the stars and a couple of star brads to the pocket. I did some machine stiching and edge distressing to the background cardstock as well. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
