Masculine cards

Real quick...I'm headed out of town in about an hour, but had a moment to post.

I don't know about you, but I struggle with masculine looking cards. I saw this pattern first on SCS and I tweaked the pockets to add the stitching. The card opens up on the left side like regular. The armholes, neck and bottom of the vest are all cut with punches (circle or square turned sideways). The buttons are popped with dimensionals, using the Little Pieces set. The pockets are the tag punch upside down and stitched with the paper piercing tool. Handkerchief is a punched square turned sideways, too! Background is the Jumbo Wheel Rough Texture...I thought it made it look like houndstooth! I drew a line to determine the division of the two fronts of the vest. Fun project and cute for Father's Day!

Little Pieces, Rough Texture Jumbo Wheel
C/S: Creamy Caramel, Mellow Moss
Inks: Mellow Moss cartridge, Close to Cocoa, Close to Cocoa marker
Other: Paper Piercing tool and mat, dimensionals, 1/2 circle punch, Small tag punch, 1 1/4 square punch, 1 1/4 circle punch

This vest is so darling, Connie. Great use of the punches, too. Thanks for sharing
