Hello, Ava here  to share a Congratulations Card for a young man who recently got a new full time job.
Supplies:
Tombow Adhesive
Clearsnap Embossing Products
Tip:  Practice making this card using 8.5 x 11″ regular copy paper before you start with your favorite Core’dinations Cardstock to figure out all the folds.
Step # 1   Score lines on your suit cardstock base, sand and dust using your Core’dinations Dust Buddy. Tent fold the card and then freehand the rounded edges for the shoulder.
Step # 2  Spray your custom size card base Core’dinations Cardstock with a mixture of water and glycerin (16 to 1 parts)  roll cardstock suit lapels while cardstock is still damp.
Step # 3  Create your pocket embellishment, adhere to card, add brads and shirt to finish off your card.

At first glance this card appears to have a strip of twine across the front of the card.  After a closer look, you can see that Core’dinations Cardstock has been scored, which reveals the inner colored core that creates this “faux twine look”.
Supplies:
Clearsnap Embossing Products
Tombow Adhesive
Step # 1  Scor front panel of cardstock, sand and dust using Core’dinations Sand-It Gadget and Dust Buddy. Tip: the closer together the scored lines are, the more it lookslike twine.
Step # 2  Stamp and heat emboss sentiment onto card front.
Step # 3  Die cut star’s, sand, layer and adhere onto card.
