MFT Celebrates World Card Making Day 2012! 37

Mona Pendleton | Friday, October 5, 2012 @ 9:00 PM | , , ,



Hi there! Everyone at My Favorite Things would like to wish you a Happy World Card Making Day! In case you are not familiar with World Card Making Day, it is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It was started by Paper Crafts Magazine and is a day for the card-making community - hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making.

Maybe your personal style includes coloring with markers, or possibly you enjoy some fresh and clean stamping. Maybe you simply like creating custom elements with our Die-namics dies. Whatever it is that you like to do, we only hope that you get a chance to create something special today!
Don’t forget that we also offer an assortment of coordinating Replenishments including  cardstockfeltbuttons and ribbon.

Sketches are always a great starting point for a little cardmaking, and we have 92 weeks of sketches available as part of our ongoing Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge. The first year of sketches is available here: MFT Sketches 1-52, and year (to date) is available here: MFT Sketches 53-92.

I made a Christmas card that features a combination of MFT stamps, cardstock, Die-namics dies and patterned paper from the Pink Paislee City Sidewalks collection. I stamped the pretty snowflake pattern from DC Christmas Ornaments Stamp Set on a fun ornament / bauble that was die cut using a die from Die-namics Christmas Ornaments set. I thought the sentiment "Joy to the World" from Inspired by Christmas was fitting for WCMD ;)
Under the ornament is a die cut doily that was made using one of the four dies from Die-namics Mini Doily Circles
I finished off the inside as well with another beautiful sentiment from Inspired by Christmas
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great day whether you are celebrating WCMD or not :) I'll be back tomorrow with something crafty to share for CR84FN.
Be Sweet ;)
