Create & Celebrate: World Card Making Day 2009

Hip hooray, it’s World Card Making Day! Are you excited? I know I am. Today, card makers all over the world come together to celebrate the hobby we love. Part of the fun includes an incredible blog tour, with more than 300 blog in participation. I’m happy to be blog 310 on this list. Thanks for stopping by!

Here’s a quick card I created for my card group a few months back.

Make This Card

1. Punch (or die cut) six flowers in all the pretty colors of the rainbow.
2. Make a card base from white cardstock and punch a border along the bottom.
3. Stitch the flowers to the card.
4. Spell “friend” with small letter stickers.

Money Saving Tip
If you’re making several of the same card, as I did for my card group, you may want to consider stamping the word “friend” instead of using stickers.

Holiday Card Kickoff

Today is the official kickoff of the holiday card-making season. Will you make your holiday cards this year? I’m toying with the idea. If I start today, I’m sure I can get them done in time.

My Class

If you are making your cards and live in Utah, I hope you’ll consider joining me for one or both of my holiday card-making classes that I’m teaching through the University of Utah this fall. I’ll post a blog with more specifics soon. In the meantime, you can find more information on these classes here and here.

Happy World Card Making Day, my blog friends! What are you doing to celebrate? Whatever it is, I hope you’re enjoying every creative minute.
