World Card Making Day

Today is World Card Making Day, so I thought it appropriate that I add a post.

I started off by cutting a background from the (now obsolete) Kaisercraft Mermaid Tales paper pack, and added it to a mauve card base. Next I cut out the lovely lattice die using another much lighter sheet from the same pack.

I don’t know about you, but I rarely use the die cut pieces at the back of the paper pads. But for some unknown reason, I decided to check it out this time, and found this lovely (matching) die cut.

I put a bit of foam tape underneath the centre to give it some dimension, and glued it down. Lastly I added some matching flowers using a glue gun, and three clear sequins.

And that was it.

I made two almost identical cards (except for the color schemes), and you can see the second card below. (I did change it slightly by adding a fourth flower. I also made my own greeting as there were no die cuts I liked – for this design – in the paper pack, which was called Heirloom.)

They are very simple and quick, but I believe, quite elegant cards.

I hope you get some time to sit down and enjoy some paper crafts on this very special day!

  1. Both are so beautiful and elegant. I love them both in those colors and with the pretty dies used.

  2. Thank you so much Verna and Linda. Unfortunately I didn’t get into my craft room at all today. 🙁 I promised hubby I would do stats for his rifle club’s prize meeting, not realising it was WCMD when I offered.

    So I spent the day adding dreary stats into a computer.

    But I’ll make up for it tomorrow. 🙂
