Create A Pocket Fold Card in Design Space

It has been quite a while since I’ve posted a public Cricut tutorial. Most of my time has been spent teaching in my Cricut classroom, but, this week, I decided to treat you to a fun little pocket card creation you can make in Design Space. 

This card was created for the Craft Roulette challenge. Each week, on the live show, you have the opportunity to watch two talented crafters create something new using four parameters spun by the roulette wheel.

After the show, you have an opportunity to participate by submitting your creation. Here were the parameters for last week’s episode.

Not only did I create a card for the contributor showcase, but I also created a video tutorial showing you how to can make one of these Floral Pocket cards in Cricut Design Space. Before I share my video, let me tell you a little bit more about the card.


The pocket for this card was created using a hexagon shape and a scoring tool. If you don’t own a Cricut, you could easily recreate it using a hexagon die. 

I cut the base from cardstock then layered some beautiful fern Mix-in Papers on the inside and out. In the video, I show you how to create and cut the triangles for the flaps in Design Space.  I like to make life easier for you whenever I can. 

The insert was created using Mix-In paper, French Vanilla cardstock, and images from the Mother’s Are the Best stamp set. I used “swinking” to shade the flowers and leaves. 

Swinking involves swiping your ink pad across the paper to create a background. You can use swinking behind sentiments, to create backgrounds or shade images. You can see some amazing swinking inspiration on the contributor showcase video

The sentiment was heat embossed on Espresso cardstock and framed by some stamped leaf images. I love how classic those leaves look with their espresso lines. I adhered the sentiment flat inside the card so that it would not prevent the flaps from closing.

The card was all closed up with ribbon and an adorable wood button. The recipient can easily untie the ribbon to open it or leave it closed and slide the insert out to read it.

This card was simple to make and easy to create in Cricut Design Space. If you would like to recreate one for Mother’s Day, you can watch the entire process from start to finish in my video tutorial.

I hope that this Design Space card project inspired you to dust off your Cricut machine and create something new. This card was simple to create and fun to make for the Craft Roulette challenge.

The Mix-In paper and Mother’s Are the Best stamp sets are only available for a limited time. If you would like to recreate this card, make sure to snag these two items from my website before they are gone.

Each season, we have multiple card-making kits for you to purchase in the Seasonal Expressions catalog, and, starting September 1st, you get THIN CUTS with your kit.  This time, instead of creating the cards as shown,  I chose to go off the rails a little and create some fancy fold cards using the supplies that came in the Every Little Thing Cardmaking Kit.

Aren’t they just darling? I had so much fun creating these for my upcoming workshops.  For those of you who live locally, you can learn how to create each of these cards at my Coffee & Cards workshop on September 7th.
