Getting Ready for Father's Day

I love pocket cards and haven't made one in a LONG time. I saw a beautiful card on MJ Albright's blog awhile back that inspired me for this Father's Day card. This was the project for my Hostess Club this month. It's our last get together and we won't restart until September. If you live in the area and would like to join us, we have some space!



The brown flourish paper is something I scored at Big Lots; can't beat those $2 paper packs! And I loved how Lois made her insert so that she could tuck in a gift card inside that bottom brown strip of paper by not gluing it down on the top edge. I think I learn as much from my group of hostess club ladies as they get out of me!!


Card Materials: all stamps from The Angel Company
Stamps: Good Timber, Victorian Elements, Celebrate Dad special set
Accessories: Assorted DCWV papers, button, twine, MS punch

Don't miss out on the special sets for The Angel Company's latest celebration!

Nice masculine card! I like the idea to tuck the gift card in behind the dp, also. Pocket cards are great!
