Sweater Vest Dies Cards with Rachel and Lexa

Hello! It's Rachel here and I am so excited to share with you a couple of different ways to use the Sweater Vest Dies. Not only is this die perfect for Christmas time, but it works well with Father's Day and masculine birthdays as well!

I went with two separate designs today that share a lot of similarities but look extremely different. The first one is a military tactical vest. I have two brothers that have served in the United States Marine Corps, and I had them in mind when creating this. I used some 12"x12" camouflage paper from Hobby Lobby and then used the dies to create my base. I added some pockets by simply using both a basic rectangle and square die and then rounding the bottom edges with a corner punch.

I added some "material" to the top of each pocket by die cutting some more camo with the long ribbed die that comes with this set. I also created some dog tags by die cutting some mirror paper with the teeny tiny, half circle looking die that comes with the Sliding Window Die. I cut them from mirror card stock and then attached them to some beaded string and then glued them to my card.

My second card is a fishing vest. Both my husband and my dad love to fish and this style card would be perfect for either one of them. I used the Loopy Letters Dies to create the word "dad" but you can customize it however you like.

I used the same technique as above to create all of my pockets except for the very tiny ones. For those, I used a very small square die and then used that same small half circle die from the Sliding Window Die Set to cut the bottom of each square to resemble a pocket. For the larger pockets, I once again used the corner punch. I actually used the v-neck die and cut it to size to add some top trim to the pockets. For some added interest, I also adhered some brown cord behind each pocket to resemble zippers and compartments like most fishing vests have.

I hope you enjoyed these cards today! Thanks so much for dropping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a dad's card using Sweater Vest Dies. But instead of using it as a vest shaped card, I'm trying to stretch out my creativity to create a square one. It's a simple and clean card which is a perfect style for the man of your life.

I use this color combination, dark grey, blue and purple. I cut a 4.25"x4.25" light blue cardstock and a strip of 2.5"x4.25" purple cardstock. I use the dies to create diagonal holes along the purple stripe and some dark grey diamonds and the bow tie. I adhere the diamonds with foam tapes to create dimension.

The alphabets are cut using Loopy Letter Dies and they look so gorgeous! This is actually my first time using this dies and I'm pretty sure that I will use it more often from now on. I use the blue stripes patterned paper from Striped Silly 6x6 Paper Pad

Here's the closer look of my card. It's easy and simple, I hope you get inspired. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have an amazing day!
