Happy World Card Making Day - Holiday Edition

Today is World Card Making Day and I was lucky enough to spend it with my oldest stamp customers and to meet several new crafting ladies who have a thing or two to teach me about scrapbooking and sewing on cards.

We did 5 cards at my camp - 3 holiday and 2 birthday.  I have posted some of the cards we did previously but wanted to show a very easy and very fun card that you can do with any stamp set.  I learned this layout during the Online Creative Convention that Ronda Wade and Maggie Patterson did almost a year ago.  I love the accent the fringe scissors give and our frosted sequins give a great touch.

This group loves the shades of turquoise that Stampin' Up! sales.  I consider anything that isn't a true blue to fall in this category.  I really wanted to show them our thick twine so I went with Coastal Cabana as the base.  The All is Calm DSP works with this color but I opted for the Smoky Slate pattern since it paired nicely with the rhinestones and compliments the Coastal Cabana.

  • Cardstock: Coastal Cabana (11 x 4 1/4); Whisper White (4 x 1, scrap); All is Calm DSP (4 x 2)
  • Ink: Coastal Cabana
  • Stamp Set: Merry Everything
  • Accessories: 16" Coastal Cabana Twine; Frosted Sequins; Basic Rhinestones; 2 1/2 Circle Punch; Fringe Scissors; Dimensionals; Scissors; Glue Dots; Adhesive 
I hope you enjoy this and that you were able to make a card yourself for World Card Making Day for someone you know or someone that just needs to know that someone somewhere cared enough to make a card for them.

Have a craftastic day,
