This amazing masculine card idea is actually a surprising pocket card

Today I have a really fun masculine card idea - one that is actually a pocket card. The card uses the Simply Elegant paper - two of the patterns:

Simply Elegant paper

One might think that this paper is only for weddings for showers, but I have used it for anything but those two special occasions. I love the colors and patterns and see so many uses for using them, including scrapbook pages. 

The card itself was constructed using the Handsomely Suited bundle. Celebrate the men in your life with the Handsomely Suited set. The images suit handmade cards you create for Father's Day, birthdays, or any occasion.
