House Pivot- Vest

I've used Karen Burniston's new House Pivot Card to create this masculine card.  I don't know about you, but I do find masculine cards more difficult to create.
To cut the base card, fold your paper in half and keep it in half when cutting.  You will place the House Pivot die ONLY on one side of the paper, keeping the pivot marks of the die on the fold, you don't want the fence portion on your paper at all, then run this through your die cutting machine.  When you open your card up, you will have two houses!

I stamped the sentiment from Bring on the Cake onto a Katie Label & added a bow from Four Bows.  I used the Trendy Tiles embossing folder on the side panels.

SO classy!  To make the handkerchief, I used the brick house die (included in the set) & just cut it shorter to fit into the little pocket.  The bow tie & buttons are only glued to the right side so it will stick out when opened & not actually have a bend in it.  I can see so many posibilities with Karen's new House Pivot, so you know I will be posting a few more samples over the next few weeks.
