Happy Saturday! Today, is World Card Making Day!!
What is World Card Making Day? It is a special holiday for card makers around the world to:
- Celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family
- Kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season
Now, I am definitely a scrapbook page of crafter! However, I have slowly ventured to the other side! I love receiving homemade cards, and creating them too! I do tend to create cards that are 6x6. Anything smaller, kind of scares me! LOL I think it is having a smaller canvas, that makes me stumble a bit. I love adding texture, dimension to my projects, and I can never seem to get everything I want on a small card. One time a dear friend told me, that she could not tell if the card I was creating was a card, or a scrapbook page! LOL
However, I think it is much easier to create cards with added layers, and bold, bulky embellishments. They make such a statement, and shows the recepient that lots of love was poured into creating the card! Shows you care to send the very best!
To help celebrate this wonderful papercrafting day, I created the following card using the August Kit from Paper Poppy!
I fell in love with the pink crepe!! I think I was secretly holding on to this bit of pink goodness! It was so easy to twist, and turn along the bottom of the card! It was the finishing touch for all of this Jenni Bowlin happiness!

Here I created bits of layers for the center of the star. It seems that denim is the thing I am into at that moment. (So do not be surprised if it keeps popping here, and there!)
Paper Poppy is celebrating World Card Making Day, so hop on over to the blog! While you are there, take a peek at the kit in October!!!! Seriously, how does she coordinate everything perfectly? Here is the link to Paper Poppy's October Kit!! You are not going to want to miss it!
May you find time to create a card, or two today! Have a wonderful weekend, and I will be back on Monday with the start to Five Days, Five Haunting Halloween Projects!
