It's World Cardmaking Day!

Yes, there is a holiday for the paper-crafting heart! I'm not able to make it to my friend Nicole's card-making party this afternoon, but I still had to get in the fun somehow, so this morning I've been playing...

This card was actually inspired by this one that I saw on the World Card making Day site. It looks completely different than mine, I know~! I made the tree on this card using two swirl diecuts I cut a while back at my LSS. The patterned paper is from K&Company. The cardstock is SU Regal Rose. I stamped the hearts using the heart from the SU Merci set and then I clear embossed them and cut them out. Who says you can't use pink and hearts on a Christmas card?!!

Hopefully I'll have a chance to make something else yet this morning, but I thought I would provide you with a couple of links for the day:
- Papercraft Magazine has a World Cardmaking Day site!
- Homespun with Heart has instructions on this cute trifold card!
- Thinking Inking has some other great links to sites celebrating World Cardmaking Day - along with some giveaways!

very cool, love the colors and the funkiness!! I have a Big Kick, which I use for my Cuttlebugs and Nestabilities, which my wonderful Mom bought for me. I did pre-order some new ones way back in June and hopefully they will be arriving soon! I need help, I'm a shop-a-holic and being out of work I just can't do it anymore!!

Hugs, Deb
