Pocket Full of (๐ŸŒž) Fun

Today’s card designs are focused on pocket cards. What is a pocket card? It is a variation of a basic card where instead of being folded to open the card base is sealed to form a pocket, and instead of the inside message being attached to the inside of the folded card it is separate and moves in and out of the pocket. There are so many ways to incorporate fun pockets into card making, and most of them are also easy to do! I’m going to walk you through the different kinds of pocket cards from basic to stepped-up.

For all the fun details and a step by step walk through of the different kinds of pocket cards you can view the video tutorial and download the pdf for your files.
