Welcome to the 4:00 pm hour of our World Card Making Day celebrations! Don’t you just love a day dedicated to something you love? We hope you’re enjoying what our team has put together. This hour we are excited to share more beautiful cards from Design Team members Melissa Phillips, Meghann Andrew and Virginia Nebel!
If you are only just joining us now, we hope you’ll start at the beginning by clicking on the links below to see all the inspiration our team has offered throughout the day…
“Fall is such a great time to create Thank You cards….everything we celebrate this time of year centers around gratitude, including the warm, rich, cozy Autumn products available.
I’ve mixed two fall collections together to create my card today, both from Carta Bella, the Hello Fall and Fall Break collections. In the background, you’ll notice patterns that create a fall feel, such as gingham, and florals.
My focal point reemphasizes the fall feel with a chipboard wreath and leaves and cardstock stickers to embellish and bring in my sentiment of thankfulness.
Enjoy your day!”
“Hello there and happy World Card Making Day, SCT readers! It’s Meghann Andrew here, and card making was my first foray into the paper crafting world. I love the small canvas of possibilities and the idea that what I create could make someone else’s day.
Thank you cards are my most sent greeting, and today I’m excited to share a fun and easy thank you card created using Elle’s Studio Thank You and Noteworthy stamps!
Supplies | Stamps & patterned paper: Elle’s Studio; washi tape: American Crafts; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Therm-o-Web; Misc. sequins
This card is simple, yet packs a big punch. When I decided to use the “thanks” script stamp, I wanted to choose a second greeting with it, but couldn’t decide between all of the lovely ones on the Thank You stamp set. I decided to use them all, and arrange them in rainbow colors to match my striped, patterned paper background.
I chose all of the phrases that fit inside the Noteworthy banner flag, stamping the flags in rainbow hues, and leaving the phrases in navy to match the word above. I needed a horizontal line to “hang” all of these flags from, so I grabbed the new gold glitter washi tape from the American Crafts Shine On collection. I love seeing that sparkle against all of the bright colors!
To finish off the card, I stamped the star circle with the Noteworthy stamp below the flags, and added sequins to coordinate with the banner flags above. Every good deed deserves a handmade card, and I can’t wait to send this one to someone special!”

“Sending a ‘Hello’ card will surely let someone know they are special! It’s sweater weather lately and I’m inspired to create an Autumn ‘Hello’ card.
My card making approach is to keep it simple. I dug into my stash of ccardstockscraps and chose a dry embossing folder. Dry embossing is a great way to add texture in the background letting your embellishment be the star of your card. I placed the card stock pieces flush to each other so that the embossed design would be continuous in the background.
Wishing everyone a Happy World Card Making Day, hope you are inspired to get card crafty!”
