Today is World Card Making Day

I thought I would share a few cards today in honor of the occasion...

I saw this Christmas card on Pinterest and fell in love...

Jenny has a most beautiful blog and her cards are amazing and gorgeous!

I loved the elegance and the roughness at the same time.
I already had the Memory Box grapevine wreath die and the corrugated cardboard so I decided to make a variation of this card.

Instead of stars, I used red Stickles as berries on my wreath. It has a bit more primitive look but I like it and will make more of these.

If you are a Downton Abbey fan, you will understand this card I made for my friend Anne for her Birthday...we love Mr.Bates!

I love funny!

I just made and sent this Birthday tag to a long-time friend, Elizabeth, of Creative Breathing.
She has stepped back from blogging but is an incredibly talented woman and an inspiration to me and many others. I hope you had a wonderful Birthday, my friend.
Always loving the Julie Nutting for Prima paper doll stamps, I created this in Elizabeth's favorite color palette.

I hope you can find time today to create something...




I LOVE your Christmas card! I'm thinking RED might be my Christmas color this year!
I didn't know it was Make A Card day! I better make one!
Thank you so much for the card and tag that I'm keeping!

Your paper doll creations are beyond adorable....I love every single one of them!
The grapevine wreath cards are beautiful...both of them! I've been saving small pieces of corrugated cardboard to create with. Love this inspiration to use it!
Did I tell you that I bought a Cricut machine? I've had it for months and haven't even tried it yet. Seeing pretty die cut creations like these might just get me going!

Both versions of the Christmas card look wonderful. The monochromatic is very pretty, but the color one is festive. That is the great thing about die cuts, you can use them in all sorts of different ways. Ugh, I feel like breaking out my Cricut now... :-)
