Countdown to WCMD...Card displays and a giveaway!


World Card Making Day is about making and exchanging handmade cards, but what happens after that? What do you do with the cards you receive?

As a packrat, I have a hard time throwing anything away. ANYTHING! Naturally this includes cards people send me. What do you do with the cards you receive? I’m currently a cardboard box gal, which I’ll admit is a bleak fate for these beauties. So, I’ve compiled a few creative card display ideas that I hope you’ll find inspiring.

What do you call two men with no arms and no legs hanging in the window? Curt and Rod...or, in this case, they're hanging on the wall, and they go by Card and Wire. Yeah, I know how lame that sounds. (No legs! Lame! Get it? Hahahahaha) Anyway, this person strung pieces of ribbon from a curtain wire and attached her cards to them. Cool!

Now, how ‘bout we get to the goods? Today’s WCMD prize is a yummy card kit from Chatterbox and a set of darling rubber stamps from Unity Stamp Company. You want? Just leave a note on this entry about how you store your cards. Don’t keep your cards? No worries. You can tell me how you display your holiday cards before they hit the round file. Sound good?

From comments I receive between now and Friday, October 3, I’ll randomly select a winner to receive this awesome card kit (includes cards, stickers and envelopes) and these super cool stamps. Go!

What better way to kick off the holiday card-making season than with a sassy card-making kit? And I'll throw in some super cute rubber stamps to top it off!
