Card Inspiration for World Card Making Day


Additional Articles

October 4th, 2014 marks World Card Making Day and paper crafters worldwide celebrate by creating handmade greeting cards. We dove through the Card Gallery and found thousands of gorgeous cards. The styles range from simple to elegant. The colors include everything from bright rainbows to neutrals. Some cards are shaped and they come in all sizes. If you are looking for some cardmaking inspiration you need go no further than the Card Gallery. In the month of September alone, Scrapbook.com members uploaded over 1700 cards! We gathered some of our favorites from the past month here.

We love the mason jar that Aly Dosdall die cut and filled with a heart and sweet bee.

Our jaws collectively dropped when we saw this adorable chick-shaped card by Mendi Yoshikawa.

Olleharr die cut bells from gold foil cardstock creating her own metallic embellishment.

 Elizabeth Gardner for American Crafts' simple sunshine card with stitched rays made us smile.

Chris Gualazzi for SpellbindersPaperArts created stunning gold feathers using Spellbinders dies.

How cute are the stamped and colored Lawn Fawn characters on Just Nora's get well card?

 We loved the innovative use of a clear die cut as a window on Patricia Roebuck's hello card. And how cool is the idea to use stamped sentiments to frame the window?

Kathy Martin expertly layered die cuts and patterned papers in this fun Halloween card.

Ewa Szelest created a gorgeous masterpiece of flowers and trims.

 Shelly Pop for We R Memory Keepers's simple card is incredibly eye-catching with its embossed base and striking embellishment.

Ajmcgarvey's pretty color combination is extended from the flair to the journaling card, patterned paper and emroidery thread.

SannaL's stamped and colored butterflies are lovely on top of text paper.

Lisa Swift creates a boyish card with stars, gaming graphics and epoxy dots.

NicoleNowosad's sweet card combines punched circles, round embellishments and polka dot paper. We really loved the "hello there" journaling card to hold the sentiment.

Last, but certainly not least, Dianaj1012's fun card has it all.  There is the whimsical die cut sentiment, sequins placed on top of circles in the patterned paper and use of an apple die cut and school of fish patterned paper to represent a back-to-school theme. You can't get much cuter than that!
