World Card Making Day

4th October is World Card Making Day.  That was yesterday in my part of the world and I had the pleasure of spending some time crafting with a friend.

World Card Making Day 2014

This is Suna getting on with her cards.

I managed to get 3 Christmas cards done and finish off a card in a box.



This is for friend's birthday.  Another friend got me to make this.

For my next two cards use a Hero Arts Holly stamp


 The first one was inked with HA Green Hills ink and Golden Glitz ink and for the second one I used Peeled Paint for the Holly and once again stamped the outline in the gold ink.  I used Shabby Shutters to sponge the edges.  The sentiment is from Kaisercraft.

And my final card is one I CASE'd from a magazine that came with the Bo Bunny papers and stamps.

Didn't quite come out as well as I hoped as I over distressed the centre piece.

And today I managed to get some more cards done... some for my DT work and a couple more.  So all in all, a great weekend crafting for me.   Hope you weekend was as much fun as mine.

What fun to have a friend making cards with you on WCMD! I had other obligations yesterday and today, too, so my card making was put on hold.

Your cards are very nice and I adore the card in a box. I am still interested to know if there is a tutorial for this somewhere?

Holy cats, you have been a busy bee this weekend! Glad to see your Christmas card stack is growing and growing... it will make the last minute rush not so busy.

By the way, I love your card in a box cards. Where can I find a pattern?
