A little about....WORLD CARD MAKING DAY

World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however, due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card making, the holiday became known as World Card Making Day from then on.

Celebrating its fifth year in 2010, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It's 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.

Make sure that you are part of this "Around the World" card making day by taking part in our CropStop, "Around the World" Blog Hop!!


I created this card using the Spellbinder Cherries Impressabilities on Ten Second Studio's Barn Red Metal Sheet. The embossed impression worked well with this light weight metal. The sentiment frame was cut and embossed using the Spellbinder Cherry Pickin' Limited Edition Die Set. The cherry embellishments are also part of this set. I added a red jewel for the cherries. Some light chalking with green shows the embossed cherries on the frame. These two Spellbinder products look delightful together and are available in the Cropstop Store!

Now, let's see what you can create using any of the wonderful Spellbinder dies! Remember to post a link to your creation in Cropstop's "Around the World" Card Making Blog Hop post on the Cropstop blog by the October 9th, midnight deadline!

Post a comment here on my blog for the opportunity to win a random draw RAK from me!
