Frosting recipe for a cute card!

Why do I love attending Stampin' Up! Events?  Because I am a visual person and love seeing demonstrations!  In April at the OnStage Event in Salt Lake City, Sara Douglas, CEO showed how to make "Frosting" to give your 
card a lot of texture!

Who doesn’t love a good cupcake? Even your most gluten intolerant friends can enjoy a bite of these cute pastries! With this stamp set you can wish them a happy birthday, thank them so much, or tell them that they are the best. No matter which you choose, they’ll think that it’s sweet.

Father's Day Vest Card

Father's Day is coming!
I am reposting what I did last year.
Everyone really loved this card and the video I made!
And while these papers are no longer available with Stampin' Up! You can use the new Incolor Dapper Denim and the InColor DSP!  Sorry I did not post this in time for you to order the paper.  But, remember this when you need a manly birthday card or thank you card or thinking of you card!


Whether you celebrate with your Father 

or anyone that you know that is a 
Father this is a cute card!

You can even change the sentiment 
for other occasions, such as Birthday 
when you need a Manly Card!

I know for me Manly cards can be hard to make!

As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator we receive 

a magazine every two months called 
Stampin' Success.  It features tips and tricks for 
Demonstrators.  Love this magazine!

The most recent one had this cute card 
for Father's Day.  However, It didn't have the 
instructions so I had fun figuring out how to make it!

I made several of them as a matter of fact!

Notice the scraps of paper I used for the pocket?

I also used a scrap of paper for the "thread" in the button!

For the insert this is how I made it.

You have to have an Envelope Punch Board to make this card!!!
Cut the cardstock 7 7/8" x 7 7/8" for the Vest.

I also just had to make a video!  I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!
