World Cardmaking Day!

Happy World Card Making Day!

Today is "World Card Making Day".  It's always celebrated on the first Saturday in October and this year, it happened to be October 1st.  The day started in 2006 as incentive for us card makers to be creative and get a head start on the holiday season.

I have to admit that this year I am further along than I've ever been with my Christmas cards.  Typically I make 30-40 cards to send to family and friends.  And, they are ALL in the works with more than half of them completed.  I haven't been this far ahead in years.  

I'm sharing a design that I've completed this week.  I try to keep them simple and flat so postage doesn't get out of hand if you know what I mean.  Green, gold and silver seem to be my go to color for this years cards.  This is the third card design in those colors.

Happy Holidays

This is a clean and simple design using a layer of patterned paper matted with the same color cardstock that the sentiment is cut from and a die cut holiday panel.
