First, protect your work surface with newspapers. Lay the t-shirt on the table and slide the card stock between the fabric layers. Cut out the half-heart template from paper and line it up along the side of one of the T-shirts, right under the sleeve. Then stencil the heart with red fabric paint. Flip the template to paint the other half of the heart on the other T-shirt. Let dry completely.
