You can download the project sheet for this card here:  Guy Greetings Father Day Vest Card

Here are the supplies used to make this card:

NOTE: You may have noticed that the Designer Series Paper (DSP) used on this card is no longer available (it is the Adventure Bound DSP from the Occasions catalogue)-if you don't already own that DSP any DSP will work, especially if it has a masculine feel to it. My suggestions are:  Go Wild DSP, Timeless Elegance DSP, Everyday Chic DSP or even the Neutrals Colour Collection. I have listed them in the supplies so that you can find them easily. Keep in mind, you may want to change the cardstock colours you use to coordinate with the DSP you choose.

Measurements:  

  • Early Espresso 7 7/8” X 7 7/8”
  • Early Espresso Scrap
  • Very Vanilla 4 X 6 ¼”

Instructions:

  1. Use Envelope Punch Board and the Early Espresso 7 7/8” x 7 7/8” cardstock and score at 3 3/8” mark, punch then turn paper, line up with previous score line, Punch and score, continue doing that on all sides.
  2. Cut off two shorter flaps so that you only have the two longer flaps for your vest.
  3. Pick a piece of DSP, trace one flap onto the DSP
  4. Cut that out with snips, attach with snail adhesive.  I found it is easiest to cover Early Espresso Flap with snail, then place the DSP onto the flap.
  5. Then use the rest of the DSP and trace other flap then cut that out.
  6. Use snail over entire flap, place DSP then close the other flap over.  It’s ok that it won’t cover all of it since you will be using adhesive and sealing the vest shut.
  7. To make insert card take the Very Vanilla and cut 1“ slits at the ¾” mark on your paper trimmer
  8. Snip off ¼” from each side of the “collar”
  9. Then fold your collar into the center
  10. Add dimensionals to the collar so it sticks up a bit.
  11. Punch two of the bow pieces to create the bow tie
  12. Attach to the shirt with glue dots.
  13. Use scraps of Early Espresso and DSP to make the vest pocket and handkerchief coming out of the pocket.
  14. Use a very thin strip of DSP to make the “thread” for your button.

Come back tomorrow for another card using Sprinkles of Life! 🙂
