Today is World Cardmaking Day! Wohoo! I adore making cards! They are a great way to stay in touch and a lovely size to explore your creativity.
I’m hoping to find a little time today to celebrate and play in my studio. Are you planning on doing anything special? There’s a lot of fabulous challenges and giveaways all over the internet today so take some time for yourself and join in the festivities.
I’ve been dying to get my hands on the Memorandum line from Lily Bee Design. Mine just arrived this week and so I’ve created a pretty card with it in honour of WCD. I’ve added in lots of my favorite things…patterned paper, stitching, felt, die-cutting and texture. There are two chipboard pieces in this design for dimension. One lies under the hello. sticker and the other is the chipboard flower painted with Distress Crackle Paint. If you’ve been to my blog recently, you’ll know that I’m quite addicted to the 3D Flower die, especially when it’s paired up with felt. I just can’t stop making them!
