How To Create A Pocket Card
by Steph Ackerman

Posted on July 23 2020

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today using an assortment of foiled papers and die cut elements to create a pocket card.  Pocket cards are really sweet to create and give to the special people in our lives with an encouraging tag and note slipped inside.

Pocket Card Using Rinea Foiled Paper

Using a large pocket die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I die cut 
Fuchsia/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.  The foils cut beautifully and the design is stunning.


Folding on the scored lines, I created the pocket.  Next, I cut Blush/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper to fit behind the die cut panel and adhered it in place for a tone on tone effect.


I wrapped 2 different sizes of ribbon around the panel.  Then adhered the panel to white cardstock creating the pocket for the tag.


To decorate the pocket, I  used Heartfelt Creations dies to die cut assorted sized roses from Fuschia/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and leaves from Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.


After forming and gluing the roses together, the roses and leaves were placed off to one side of the pocket atop the ribbon.


A tag was created from cardstock and Blush/Gold Foiled Paper was layered on top.  A  phrase was stamped on cardstock and then adhered to the tag.  Using the same ribbons used to wrap the pocket, I added them to the top of the tag with a brad.


The tag slips inside the pocket and can be easily removed. Finally, a  phrase was stamped on a scrap of Fuchsia and placed behind the rose.

 Thanks for stopping by.
