Another World Card Making Day!

WCMD2014

I am still in shock that October is here already! With that being said it is also world cardmaking day again.

In honor of world cardmaking day I stole a few minutes of time to whip up three cards. I used some of my favorite techniques to make these cards and I am very pleased with how they turned out.

The favorite techniques that I used were stamping (oh how I love stamping), embossing (don’t we all just have tons of embossing folders lying around), and color shine (is color shine a technique, maybe it’s called misting).

Anyways I made a cute little Christmas card. This card is only 4×4 and I love how cute and small it is. This just might be the card that I send out for Christmas. I embossed the silver little strip of paper and stamped the ornament with the October stamp of the month and cut it with the Cricut art philosophy cartridge.

A thanksgiving card. This card is an A2 sized card and I dont usually make cards in landscape format but it was the only way the stamp would fit. Then I stamped the leaves on the inside and embossed a strip of orange paper with the pumpkin embossing folder and adhered it to the inside.

And last but not least a Love card in honor of WCMD and operation write home. This card is also A2 sized and I embossed the silver piece of paper with my heart embossing folder. Next I used one of my project life watercolor cards from the Heidi Swapp line. I stamped the inside of the card with Love from the September stamp of the month, which I think is by far one of my favorite stamp sets.
