World Card Making Day

Some of you have never heard of this wonderful "holiday" but that's OK. :) It's only about 4 years old so you have a good excuse. AC Bailey hosted a celebration and issued 9 challenges. I only was able to participate in 3 of them but I plan to use several of the challenge ideas in the future.

Here are the 3 cards I made (thankfully, you didn't have to do the challenges in order -- you're able to pick & choose among the 9):

Challenge #1 - make a card of any theme and include a bookmark made from the directions given on the forum. We were to show the bookmark hooked onto the inside of the card.

I chose to make a birthday card for a friend. I sure hope she's a reader. :)

Card Supplies: Paper - BG Wisteria; CS - Bazzill; Punch - Fiskars - Give it a Swirl; Ribbon - JoAnn's; Stamp - Studio G; Inks - Studio G & Stampabilities; Bling - Michael's

Bookmark Supplies: Paper - BG Wisteria; CS - Bazzill; Ribbon - JoAnn's; Inks - Studio G; Bling - Paper Studio; Stickles; Flowers - SandyLion

Challenge #3 - Make a Halloween Card or make a card out of craft plastic or both.

We don't really "do" Halloween so I chose to make a card to give our dau
ghter-in-law at her baby shower today. I really like these clear cards. They just add a neat creative spin on card-making. One of these days I'll get up the courage to make one of those acrylic mini-albums.

Supplies: Papers - Cloud Nine; Stickers - SandyLion; Stickles; Card blank - Short Cuts; Punch - Fiskars Threading Water

Challenge #9 - Make a Thank You card with a punched border.

Supplies: Paper - K & Company - Wild Saffron; Punch - Fiskars Threading Water; Ink - Color Box Fluid Chalk & Stampabilities; Ribbon - Offray; Eyelets - Misc; Stamp - Inkadinkado; Pearls - Hero Arts
