It’s 2:00 pm and we know you’ve been card making machines today right?! If that’s not in the cards for you today (sorry for the pun!), hopefully, you’ve been inspired to create some beautiful cards when you’re next in your craft space. This hour Design Team members Nicole Nowosad, Lisa Dickinson and Sheri Reguly are here to inspire you further with cards they created just for today’s celebration. If you’re only joining us now be sure to also visit these earlier posts…
HOORAY for World Card Making Day, Nicole here! How great is it that we have a whole day dedicated to the art of card making! When it comes to cards, I like to get straight to the punch 😉 I love grabbing some smaller pieces of paper that I just can’t seem to part with or even punch a shape out of a favourite piece of paper that I want to make last longer.
For this card, I punched several label shapes using a Stampin’ Up punch. I usually punch way more shapes than I need, but it allows me the variety to move different patterns and colours around on my project.
A simple stamped title along the top row of my shapes and a fussy cut flower or two are the perfect way to finish off a HELLO card for a friend!
I hope you are inspired to break out some paper and pack a punch on your own WCMD card projects!

Happy WCMD! It’s Lisa DIckinson here and I’m excited to be sharing a fast project with you today! This easy thank you card comes together in a snap using the Forever Fall SCT Delivered card kit and a free cut file! (And it’s also perfect to use up those paper scraps currently laying on your table!)
- Create an A2 card base (4.25×5.5) from tan cardstock.
- Trim a piece of striped paper to 4×5.25 and add stitching around the outer edge. Adhere to card base
- Electronically cut sunflower from red paper.
- Trim small scraps of coordinating papers to fill petals of the flower. Adhere on the back side of die-cut.
- Use dimensional adhesive to adhere sunflower to center of the card.
- Use Forever Fall kit stamps with red ink to stamp Thank You sentiment on white cardstock. Cut out with the matching die.
- Use kit stamps with green ink to stamp FOR EVERYTHING sentiment on tan cardstock. Trim into a banner shape.
- Adhere Sentiments with dimensional adhesive on the center of the sunflower.
- Embellish card with jewels.
Thanks for stopping by SCT and enjoy World Card Making Day!

Hello, and Happy World Cardmaking Day. Sheri Reguly here. According to the calendar, and the chilly temps outside, fall has definitely arrived. However, being a summer-lovin’ girl, I will continue to wear my flip flops until the snow hits the ground just as I couldn’t resist using a summery color palette and design on the card that I created to share here today.
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee, Ephemera Pack, Dimensional Flower: Crate Paper; Stickers: Crate Paper, Pink Paislee; Enamel Dots: Simple Stories; Adhesive: ThermaWeb; Other: Paper Clip
I just got my hands on Crate Paper’s gorgeous sequin flowers from the Willow Lane collection and couldn’t wait to incorporate one into my very next project. When it comes to designing cards, as well as layouts, layering on top of layering is my favorite way to add visual interest to my designs. I topped my patterned papers with various pieces of ephemera, stickers, a dimensional flower as well as enamel dots. Various pieces were adhered using adhesive foam to incorporate even more dimension into my design.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you find today’s projects as inspiring as I do. 🙂
