A Guy's Card

Back again!

Thought I'd share an easy card I made recently for my daughter's boyfriend.

Guy cards are already a little more challenging cuz you can't add all ribbon, glitter, bling, and flowers that we love to use. And a teen guy is even harder!

So here's what I started with - polkadot paper from Reminisce's Making the Grade line:

and a pocket cut from an old, ratty pair of torn-up jeans:

I punched a circle,

glued that inside a metal-rimmed tag, and stamped on it:

I attached that tag to the pocket with a safety pin and glued the pocket to the front of the card:

This is the message that I chose for the inside of the card:

So after Jarod read that, he had a big smile on his face and went back to check for this! (I had it tucked out of sight when he first opened it!)

Hope you guys enjoyed this little quick -n- easy card and it gave you a little bit of inspiration for those hard-to-create-for people!
