Yesterday was a holiday. Nobody in my house celebrated except me. That's because it was World Card Making Day, where card makers worldwide celebrate their craft. There were card-making parties, special sales, contests and challenges! One of the challenges was hosted by online retailer Butterfly Reflections Ink.
I decided to celebrate by participating in the two challenges on their blog. I made two cards. One card is for the inspiration challenge and the other for the sketch challenge.
First up is the inspiration challenge card.
The wreath was not the only element I used from the mood board. I pulled in the triangles from the picture on the top left and the wood planks from the picture with the yarn and kitting project!
Using the sketch below, I created this card also using WPlus9 stamps and dies. The chevron stripe in the middle is washi tape (but I forget who makes it) and the bling is from Eyelet Outlet. I also added this super fabulous gold twine from Martha Stewart. I bought it a few years ago before it was trendy and I am so glad I did!
So, that is how I celebrated World Card Making Day. What did you do?
