I want to say a quick thanks to Ruth and Charnell for attending my class last night -so nice to meet you and we look forward to seeing you again. This is one of the projects/cards we made. The ladies loved it :) Isn't this the greatest vest?!! I got this adorable template from Amy Celona, and made a few minor changes.
* I cut out my vest in Choc Chip card stock. Inked aroung the edges using a Sponge Dauber and Choc Chip ink
* With the new Square Lattice Embossing Folder in the Summer Mini, we embossed the vest 'flaps' - love how this texture makes it look like fabric - tres chic!!
* Using the Tag punch (cut down), we kreated our pocket. Again given some dimension by daubbing Choc Chip ink around the edges and then placing on dimensionals.
* Tucked a Very Vanilla Satin ribbon into the pocket to resemble a hanky
* Silver brads kreate the perfect 'buttons'

* The inside shirt, tie and collar were all kreated using To The Nines Specialty Paper - absolutely perfect for the masculine vest.
* Added my sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes punched out with the Word Window Punch.

Schnazzy, ain't it :) Let me know what ya think - I love to read your thoughts :)
