You know all of those Pinterest pins that you pin and say “Oh I have to do this one day, I can’t forget!” but you really do until it is too late. Well this time, I didn’t forget!
I would attach the pin but honestly I had never clicked on it before and it was just a picture! After the disappointment warred off and I realized I would have to do it myself, I decided not to share the “link”.
Before I get to the main event, I have to share something. I hate buying cards. Is there a stronger word for hate? Detest, despise, loath. I think they are over priced and never have enough personalization in them.
Don’t worry, my husband hates them too! So we made a deal with each other that we would never buy each other a card again. Yes I know I will regret this one day when I forget to make a card (I almost forgot on his birthday but shhhh).
For the wedding I had to make a card for him to read the day of and I wanted to personalize it just for him and but a little more effort in than drawing a picture like a 2 year old on the front.
So without further ado, here is the card I made him, a suit card!
- White blank card
- Black and red paper
- Double sided tape
- Paper cutter (recommended)
Now for the pocket. I think it ties the entire card together, especially with the cute pocket squares!
You can use your best judgement for the size of the square but the rest is based on that square. After you cute the square, cut a rectangular shaped piece that is 1/5 of the square. Doing this gives the suit more dimension.
Cut two triangles that overlap and are a little longer than the square and have them overlap a little.
