Honestly since using the Cricut Joy App, I’m going to be making all of my insert cards with it. I just find the app so helpful, easy to use and all the insert cards are there. Sometimes in Design Space, I can’f find the insert cards and just end up wasting time searching for them.

Let’s Make a Cricut Joy App Card in Under 5 Minutes

Open the Cricut Joy App and make sure you are signed into your Cricut Design Space™ account. If you have a Cricut Access Membership Plans then most of the designs are included.  A quick tip is to make sure your Cricut Joy Blade is sharp and that your card mat is clean and sticky. If these are not, the card won’t cut as clean and you will have many pieces left in the card to remove.
