Hedge Hog Mini Album

A friend asked that I create something unique and special for her  daughter in law, who is pregnant with baby Owen. I used craft card stock with gray, blue and green accent colors.

I wanted to create a lot of space for special moments and keepsakes.

Father’s Day Double Pocket Card

As promised, the Father’s Day double pocket card. If you didn’t see yesterday’s post, the template comes from Hot Off The Press at Paper Wishes  

I wanted to make cards this year that each child could create a piece of. I thought these pockets were perfect. I created a tag for each child to decorate and write their special message to Daddy. I did stencil the backgrounds to give them a little flare 🙂 The pockets can also be used to tuck gift cards into.

FYI, the card can be folded flat to mail. The finished card measures 3.75 x 5.5″

Check back on Wednesday for the Best Dad Double Pocket Card.
