Caution! You're about to look at underwear...

I have a brother-in-law (my husband's sibling) who has a great sense of humor. He likes to tease me a lot, so when I get the chance, I tease him back. We have a good time, and it's always all in fun.

Since his birthday was yesterday--June 18--and I love to tease him about being older than me, I decided to make a card with a bit of humor in it.  Here's what I came up with:
My husband and I called him on his birthday and he said he loved his card.  He appreciated that I spent so much time thinking about it and then creating it, just for him.

Here's the inside with the punch line. I didn't make this up--I actually found it online somewhere a long time ago. When I read it, I laughed out loud. I knew I'd find a chance to use this in a card someday.

To make the boxers, I used a pair of boy's pants from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I used the "real" sizing for the image and cut them to about 3", I believe. I then cut off the legs to the appropriate length and did a little coloring and shading to make them look a little more realistic.

For the briefs, I actually used a pair of girl's pants from the same cartridge. I cut them off so that they had the shape of briefs. Then I took a gray alcohol marker to put in the lines. You should have seen me, using a pair of my husband's briefs as a model!

The faux brads are Card Candi that I colored with a ProMarker to match the blue in the boxers and the cardstock mats.

This card was so much fun to make, and I'm glad my B-I-L enjoyed the humor in it (I just knew he would).

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Cheryl, that is hilarious. I'm sure I will chuckle about that all day. I may even have to case this for my BIL 75th next month.
