Sweater Vest Dies Cards with Angelica and Juliana

Hi friends, Angelica here with a fun Father's Day project. Can you believe we're getting towards that time of the year?? I am in a family of avid Football fans, so I thought it would be fun to incorporate the colors of my husband's and my father-in-law's favorite football teams into these Sweater Vest cards.

How cute are these Sweater Vest Dies?!! I used pattern papers from the Classic Gingham Paper Pack for the sweaters, the red representing my father-in-law's Buffalo Bills team, and the blue representing my husband's (and Mine!) Seattle Seahawks team. I die-cut the trimmings out of card stock in the secondary team colors.

To turn these sweaters into cards, I die-cut four more sweater bases out of white card stock. I used double-sided adhesive to adhere the completed sweaters to two of the white bases to make them card fronts.

The other two bases I stamped Happy Father's Day using words from the Happy Thoughts stamp set, then added score lines 3/4 inches from the top of each base. I added strong adhesive above the score lines, then attached the card fronts to them.

I LOVE how these sweaters turned out. I can't wait to get started on Christmas cards with this die set! I hope I have given you ideas about sweater cards. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Friends, it's Juliana here and I'm excited to be sharing how to add extra texture and interest to your card today using the Sunny Studio Stamps Sweater Vest Die Set, and embossing folder and flocking.

Because I wanted the texture to be the main focus for the card, I went clean and simple and only used dies to create my card front. To add the texture, I used a new product called DecoFoil Flock Transfer Sheets by Therm O Web. This fun new product allows you to easily add flocking to your paper crafting and card making projects for a fun fuzzy effect. And even better, I love that you can do it without all the mess that previous flocking powders caused.

I began by taking a piece of iCraft Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets and peeled off the liner on one side. I then adhered this to a piece of white cardstock. (I've found the cardstock to be helpful when using this adhesive to give your project a bit of stability as you apply the flocking.)  Next, I took this piece and die cut all of the elements for my card using the Sweater Vest Die Set making sure to cut with the liner side up. Once the die cutting was complete, I took DecoFoil Flock in various colors and adhered them to the die cut pieces. Make sure during this step that you adhere the fuzzy flocked side to the adhesive. You are then going to run each piece through your die cutting machine to press the flock into the adhesive for permanent adhesion.

After I had flocked all the things, I wanted to take things a step further by adding even more texture. I adhered the diamond shaped die cuts to the main sweater vest image and then placed this piece inside the Cable Knit Embossing Folder. I then ran this entire piece through my die cutting machine to emboss the design right into the flock. Isn't it fabulous?! And in real life, the soft fuzziness of the flock is the perfect thing for this adorable sweater vest.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed learning how to add texture and interest to your die cuts using flocking combined with the Sweater Vest Die Set. Imagine the possibilities with the other fun Sunny Studio Stamps dies!
