What did you do on World Card Making Day?

World Card Making Day (WCMD) is held each year on the first Saturday of every October, and kicks-off the start of the holiday card-making season. It’s a day for the card-making community, all of us; hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers. We can unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card-making.

For the past 3 years my friends and I (Stampin’ Amigas) have been hosting a World Card Making Day event in Oviedo, FL. We had 50 stampers stamping away making their greeting cards and having loads of fun! Each stamper made 8 cards (see below) and we gave away over 20 door prizes. We also raffled off all the products on a page of the Annual Stampin’ Up catalog.

In addition to the WCMD activities a few stampers and all my Stampin’ Amigas wore Pink to #StandUpToCancer and #JoinTheFlock!

Here are the cards our stampers made on WCMD:

Merry Everything…2nd WCMD Completed!

As promised here is my 2nd World Card Making Day card. With the help of Lois Butler I was able to complete the prep work for this card before going on vacation!
Yes, I’m going on 10 day cruise to the Eastern Caribbean with my husband, this is a much needed vacation and I’m looking forward to it. This is the reason I had to have everything done so far in advance because I get back 2 days before the event.
I hope you like the card, this is my attempt at recreating the sample card on page 12 from the Holiday Catalog. Using Stampin’Dimensionals below the tree cutouts gives it the lift for the layered mountain look and shadows.
