I wanted to create a card that had a pocket for either a message or gift card. My original design was for Christmas, but for this example I made one for a birthday or other special occasion using Melody’s Digital paper. This project actually used 3 different paper sets: Madison, Fairy and Becky! I love trying to come up with new designs and using this paper was a breeze! Even though I used 3 different designs, the colors all went together! You can change this card up to fit any occasion! Enjoy and let us see what you create. I have included my design space file, as well as dimensions for cutting it out with a paper trimmer.
Card Dimensions and supplies: Base: 5x10 inches, scored at 5 inches Layer (cut 2, one for front and one inside): 4.75 inch square 1.25x4.5 inch stirp 1.25x1.75 piece for sentiment Top layer (best with a 2 sided paper): 4.5 inch square, scored diagonally Craft Tag cut to 3 inches Twine Washi Tape

I found this cute pop up slider card design on youtube by Jan Brown. I wanted to re-create it in design space. So here is the finished project. I used Melody Lane’s Zoey Digital Paper and her SVG: Life is too short to be anything but Sexy! Remember to use the code GEORGIA40X to get 40% off your entire order at Melody Lane Designs! For my stamping I used Maymay Made It "Love Is" Stamp set. I used the chomas engraving tip to “write” the svg on my heart, then colored in to make it pop. This card is quick to put together, under 15 minutes! You can change it up for any season or holiday! In my cut file I included 3 different toppers, hearts, ovals and a rectangle. You could easily put your own creation on the front!
Playing in my craft room today, I finished an order of cards I had and decided to just play. I made this tattered lace inspired card. The light blue snowy background paper is from Chloe Digital Paper. To make the snowman I used a Tattered Lace Christmas Cuties Snowman Die and cut several out of different papers to create his layers. My matting and layers were made using a set of shaped dies I have (do not know brand as I have them on a magnetic board and didn't think to mark the brand). On the inside of the card I used a stamp from Maymay Made It that says There's Snow One Like You.
You can use the Chloe Digital paper for many Christmas cards.

I uploaded the paper into Cricut Design Space as a pattern and Flattened Nemo and Dory to it.
Have I told you lately how much I love Cricut? Between my Cricut Explore Air and my Cricut Access subscription in Cricut Design Space, I am unstoppable! Well, maybe not unstoppable, but there is a lot I can do with them. This project uses a free card from Cricut Design Space that you can download and cut out if you are a Cricut Access member. I used the Elvira Digital Paper Set from Melody Lane (which you can check out by clicking here!) and printed it on vellum. This purple background contrast so well with the orange of the cardstock. It will also give your recipient a surprise when they go to open the card only to realize that it is translucent. I hope this gives you some inspiration for your last minute Halloween cards!
Don't forget you can always check out my other creations over on my Youtube channel.
Gift card is open to everyone world wide where it is legal.

My inspiration for this Double Dutch Fold Card was by FaithfuleCreations on youtube. I needed a card for a baby shower and this one was perfect. I also added a pop-up element on the inside.

So, I found another unique fold card to share with you! My inspiration was Holly Young on Youtube. I watched others after hers, but hers was the first! I fell in love with it, so I went to trusty Cricut Design Space and created a file for it. But my "twist" on the card, was to make it a pop-up card! Using Melody Lane's "Lola" Digital Paper was a natural. The piece I used seemed to have movement which went well with the stamp set I was using. And the colors spoke fall to me. If you don't have a Cricut, just watch Holly's video and you will be making it in no time.
