Will you be one of the thousands of card makers participating in the various World Card Making Day events? We hope you'll make SRM Stickers a frequent stop as we have so much in store for you! I'll be featuring amazing cards created by the SRM Designers using SRM Stickers and Penny Black stamps! If you're a stamper, Penny Black fan, card maker, or you just want to win some new SRM, stop by frequently throughout the day, on October 2nd. There will be something inspiring to view, and something fabulous to win, every hour on the hour all day long. I know I'll be in a generous mood because WCMD happens to be my birthday as well!
Here's a look at a Fall card using SRM and Penny Black...I used stickers from our new Fall Sticker Sentiments;
I matted 3 stickers and used them as a collage sentiment on my card;
I used colored pencils and mineral spirits to color my Penny Black image. I also added crystal lacquer to certain areas, along with glitter.
Here's a little background on World Card Making Day;
World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however, due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card making, the holiday became known as World Card Making Day from then on.
Celebrating its fifth year in 2010, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It's a day for the card-making community -- hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers -- to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making.
So, mark your calendar -- Saturday, October 2nd, and join us as we celebrate World Card Making Day.
