Oh what a fun day we’ve had! We have loved reading your comments today as they have really embraced what we wanted this day to be about…sharing, creating and connecting. You’ve shared who you would like to share a class with in our 9:00 am post, who you would love to say “hello” to in our 12:00 post, who you think could use a little crafty supplies sent their way in our 12:00 post and last hour what you’re thankful for! But this hour it’s all about you and celebrating today…

Nicole Nowosad card for Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine

Supplies: Cardstock-American Crafts, Sticky Notes- Crate Paper, Enamel Dots-Simple Stories, Mist-Heidi Swapp, Cut file-Scrapbook and Cards Today, misc buttons and crochet twine

“My favorite all-time tip for creating cards is to use up items in my stash. You know, some of those smaller items that you have to have that don’t always find a place on the project like you intended.

For my card, I chose to use some fun banner sticky notes to create small banners for my card front! I love the smaller size that lend perfectly to the size of a card. I used some chipboard from my stash and instead of just saying HELLO, I chose to use a “celebrate today” because that is a great way to say hello to a friend or loved one right!” ~ Nicole Nowosad

As our way to celebrate YOU, our team would love to share their cards with 10 people who have commented today! A little handmade kindness is always nice to receive in the mailbox! We wish we could send a card to everyone who has shared this day with us but instead we ask that you create a card to honour this day and our time together and place it in the mail to someone you feel could really use a smile! If you can, take a picture of it and tag us at @sctmagazine so we can see!

But guess what, we are not quite done yet! We received some lovely gifts from some of our partners and this hour we want to end it with a bang! First, there’s this…

Our sweet friends at Simon Says Stamp have donated a $25 gift certificate (we have the one with the actual certificate number!) to share in today’s celebration AND if you head on over to their blog not only are they showcasing a stunning array of cards from all over the world, but you’ll have the opportunity to win a one year subscription to Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine…your favourite magazine right?  😆

And one more! Our sweet friends at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L have a fabulous $25 adhesive package to give away to this hour’s winner! We also spotted some fabulous inspiration on their blog and another opportunity to win a $30 prize package. Head over to their blog to enter.

With that SCT friends, our World Card Making Day 2017 is a wrap! Again, we have loved connecting with you today and if ever anyone says “really you make cards?”, we hope you’ll smile sweetly and say “OH YES I DO!!!” And also tell them there is a day dedicated to celebrating it. Handmade cards bring so much joy so keep creating them!  xoxoxo
