Suit Card

Hi Everyone!

You know all of those Pinterest pins that you pin and say "Oh I have to do this one day, I can't forget!" but you really do until it is too late.  Well this time, I didn't forget!

I would attach the pin but honestly I had never clicked on it before and it was just a picture!  After the disappointment warred off and I realized I would have to do it myself, I decided not to share the "link".

Before I get to the main event, I have to share something.  I hate buying cards.  Is there a stronger word for hate?  Detest, despise, loath.  I think they are over priced and never have enough personalization in them.

Don't worry, my husband hates them too!  So we made a deal with each other that we would never buy each other a card again.  Yes I know I will regret this one day when I forget to make a card (I almost forgot on his birthday but shhhh).

For the wedding I had to make a card for him to read the day of and I wanted to personalize it just for him and but a little more effort in than drawing a picture like a 2 year old on the front.

So without further ado, here is the card I made him, a suit card!

Wedding card

I really liked how the card turned out because those are the colors and what he would be wearing.  It was something super easy to make but also looked great!


Here are the supplies you need:
  • White blank card
  • Black and red paper
  • Double sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Paper cutter (recommended)


I suggest starting with the tie and the suit coat.  Simply lay the two pieces on the card to get the right size.  Tape the pieces down with the tie under the suit (makes sense right).

Now for the pocket.  I think it ties the entire card together, especially with the cute pocket squares!

You can use your best judgement for the size of the square but the rest is based on that square.  After you cute the square, cut a rectangular shaped piece that is 1/5 of the square.  Doing this gives the suit more dimension.

Cut two triangles that overlap and are a little longer than the square and have them overlap a little.

Tape each of the pocket pieces together and trim the sides of the triangles.

Last but not least, tape the pocket onto the card and write your personal message inside.

If you want, you can always finish the suit on the other side of the card, but I didn't think that was necessary, nor would the hubby really care about it.

It is a great card to make for the groomsmen, fathers or any male in your life!

I hope you enjoy this simple card because I know I did!

Oh wait before you stop reading, aren't you at all curious about what Eric made for my card?  Don't worry, I will share.


He did such a great job too didn't he?!  When we got back from the honeymoon he handed me all of his supplies and told me he had no idea what to do with them.  I think that is his last craft for a very long time!

Did you and your spouse do anything special or personal on the wedding day?

Happy Crafting,
