Quick masculine birthday card and present …

Hi there!  A quick post and super quick card today.

I was sorting through my photographs and realised I’d not yet shared this card with you. I made it for my teenage nephew’s birthday back in February.  You know teenagers – they’d sooner have money than a gift, so I made this super quick and easy card that doubles as a gift holder …

Suit pocket card

The pocket is ideal for popping some birthday money, or a gift card, into.

  1. What a great idea, is the lapel cut and then scored? I would like to make one, would you mind if I CASE it?

    • Hi Peg. Of course you can case it – I’d be honoured! And nothing as fancy as scoring involved – just plain old paper piecing – quick and easy. Glad you like it. xxx

  2. Great idea for a quick and easy man card, father’s day is coming too ;)! Thanks for sharing. C x

  3. what a super fun idea!! love it

  4. Would like directions to make the masculine birthday card if you are willing and able to share them with me. Thank you.

    • Hi Marie. It’s really easy to do, uses paper piecing and can be made for any size card. Cut a piece of coloured card the same size as your base card. Cut off a piece on the diagonal on one of the top corners and flip over to form the lapel – I just eye-balled it and cut where I thought looked right. Cut a separate piece of card for the pocket and snip off 2 corners. Adhere both the pocket and lapel pieces in place to form the jacket (leave the top of the pocket open). I stamped the greeting across the pocket in white ink, and used a marker pen to make faut stitching around the pocket and lapel.

    • Thank you very much for sharing the directions for making the card. It makes sense to me now.😊
