Happy World Card Making Day!

It’s time to create & celebrate. Today is World Card Making Day (WCMD)! I adore shaped cards, so I put together a few using a sheet of paper from Bella Blvd. to share with you in honor of this fun day. 

I love the large shapes on this Sunny Happy Skies paper from Bella Blvd. They make quick and cute shaped cards. 

It was as easy as cutting out the different elements from the paper (tree, house, and ice cream) and connecting them to cardstock backings, which I cut following the shape of the cards.  

I think the house is my favorite. For me, it’s the little details that make it extra fun (the door that opens, the flowers by the door, and the sun and cloud in the sky). I already sent it to a friend who had invited me to her home, but you could also use a card like this for a Welcome to the Neighborhood and Moving card.

This would make a fun birthday card for someone who loves their ice cream with sprinkles on top. But the “You’re Sweet” sentiment would also make this card work for a thank-you.

And I sent this one to Mom and Pop. It’s always a good time to tell someone you love them. If you aren’t sure what card(s) to make this WCMD, why not do a love note for someone(s) special in your life?

Happy WCMD, my crafty friends! I hope you’re doing something fun to create & celebrate this special occasion.

Hi Megan!
I met you at the CKC nashville 2011. My mother and I would like to make cards for troops overseas but can't find an address to ship them to. Can you help me with this? Thanks so much. Christine
