Hey friends! We are so fortunate to live in a time where technology adds so much convenience in our lives. However, there are still some old-school habits that I hope never get forgotten; one of them is hand-written notes! I love making a unique and personalized note for a special occasion, rather than just sending an e-card. With just a few supplies and some good paper, you can whip up a fun card in no time! Here’s how I made a cute pocket envelope card for Father’s Day.
To begin, I used my Silhouette CAMEO machine to cut out the envelope shape. This particular one was found in their online design store by Felicity Jane. I decided to go with a masculine and timeless color scheme of just black and white. The Basis Cardstock worked perfectly for that!
To add some dimension for the words, I cut up some foam adhesive squares and placed them on the back of each letter.
Then lining them up, I stuck each letter onto the front of the pocket envelope.
Next, I folded all the pieces along the perforated lines and added some Tombow glue to the tabs to adhere them.
Easy peasy, right? The white insert fits perfectly and is the optimum size for a heart-felt note, or even a picture drawn by your kiddo.
Don’t forget to make one for Grandpa, too!
