World Card Making Day

Today is the day that we celebrate cards!

Making cards can be so rewarding.  It not only fulfills a creative void, but also puts smiles on the faces of those who receive such beautiful pieces of creativeness.

Cards do not have to be a work of art, but rather a work of heart.

We would love to help with your card-making.  A simple sketch is sometimes all one needs to get the creative juices flowing.

Here is the go-to sketch that I ALWAYS use!  Any collection of scrapbooking goodness will work with this sketch. Four simple strips of paper and a few embellishments, and WAAAA-LAAAA!

  1. Can we get the paper you used for the Christmas card kit? You gave us 20 extra bonus pieces & I’d love to make more cards using this idea but we don’t have any traditional Christmas papers yet.
