Quick & Easy Pocket Card

I'm still busy finishing up painting my bedroom. So far I painted the walls, stenciled at ceiling around the entire room and then added a faux treatment - lighter glaze which I rag rolled onto the walls. Today it's time to paint the trim. It will be nice to get everything moved back in there later.

Yesterday was my oldest son's birthday. He turned 19! I can hardly believe it! (I was only 10 when he was born! hehe) Where does the time go? Since I have been so busy painting, I needed to make him a quick and easy card. Teens...I think they really only care what's inside the card anyways! So I made him a pocket card to hold the cash we gave him as a gift.

All I did was score and fold my card stock at 2" and again at 6". I folded up the bottom 2" and secured the sides with sticky strip and this became my pocket. Super easy and I think it turned out cute. He liked it! (well, what was in it anyways!)

I also managed to get a cute card stamped for a friend who also has a birthday coming up. I'll wait to share that one in case she looks here. Have a great day!
