Happy World Card Making Day!

Don't you love that there is an entire day dedicated to celebrating Card Making?

Who do you know in your life that you haven't talked to in a while? Someone who needs a bit of cheer? Perhaps give someone a card for no reason at all!

We give cards for so many reasons, and it is likely if you take time from your busy schedule to visit with me that you too love to create your own cards because you are giving from your heart. On this 2013 Card Making Day why don't you take a moment and create a card for someone to let them know you were thinking about them.

Let's get crafty today, I'd love to see what you've made!  The card I'm sharing is a Birthday card I made. Believe it or not, but I hand cut the stacked present shape, maybe next time I need to create a cut file for this? Oh well, I have another one that I have to use first... The quilled element is a multi-strip design where I took several strips of quilling paper that matched the colors I used on the card, I then rolled the tips and glued them together and then pulled the strips to create this shape.  I did this twice, glued it together and then took my scallop punch and punched a few scallops and fringed them for added texture.

I do like making Birthday cards for people whose birthdays are near Halloween... I mean I get to use Halloween shapes (like the spider web border in this card) and all the beautiful oranges, purples, browns, and blacks of the season!

I hope you have a wonderful day!
