World Card Making Day – 10:00 am – Sparkle & Shine!

World Card Making Day – 10:00 am – Sparkle & Shine!


"Hello SCT friends! I'm so happy to celebrate World Card Making Day with you by sharing my sparkly shiny fall leaf card. I love Fall and thought this would be the perfect way to capture the beauty of the season.


I used a new stamp set from Cocoa Daisy and stamped all the leaves with Versamark embossing ink. I then used metallic, glitter, and opaque powders from American Crafts to create lots of sparkle and shine.


Watercolors are always a fun way to add color to your stamped images, so I played around with that and thought I'd share this tip to get multi-colored leaves:

  1. Put a lot of water on your brush and a little bit of color, fill the embossed image with the mix.
  2. Let it sit for a few minutes, then use a tissue to pull off the water. A bit of color will remain.
  3. Put a little water and a lot of color on your brush and add some streaks of color over the original color.
  4. Use your tissue to pull off any excess color. 
  5. You may repeat this process a few times to get a variegated look.

Next I cut out a bunch of the leaves and started arranging them in a circle, but found I was having difficulty working with the small leaves on the paper, so I made a "wreath form." Instructions are as follows:


  1. I used a 2.5 inch punch to make the outer circle, you can use whatever larger size you'll need.
  2. I marked the center of the circle with a dot, then used a smaller punch, slid the punched circle into a smaller punch (I used a 1 5/8 inch punch for the inner circle) making sure the dot was in the center and punched again.
  3. The result is a form you can use to attach your leaves to. It's much easier to work with because you can hold it and turn it as needed.

Using glue and adhesive foam, I layered all my leaves until it looked even and full. I added some bling and wrapped the whole wreath with a thin gold string.


I added my sentiment, some white paint, and a bit more glitter then attached everything to a card base and voila, we're done!

Yes, it was a labor intensive card, but so worth it. I hope you'll give it a try!" ~ Emily Pitts


"Hello! I’m so excited to be here creating and celebrating World Card Making Day 2016 with you. This holiday is near and dear to my heart, as I actually played a very involved role in getting it established many years ago. I love seeing how much the day has grown since then. Being here, now, making cards with you is such a treat!


Holidays and sparkle go hand in hand. How fun that there are so many ways to add shine to a design! I went with pre-made glitter paper from the darling new Sugar Plum collection by My Mind’s Eye and Adhesive Sequins (love!) by Jillibean Soup.

Here’s how my card came together:

step 1: Fold paper in half and trim about one inch from the front of the fold.


step 2: Machine-stitch the trimmed piece back in place, sewing it to the back of the paper. This creates a cool matchbook-style card (where the front flap of the card folds into the flap along the bottom, keeping it closed).


NOTE: This stretch of paper was long enough that I actually cut it to become two cards. I’m all for stretching those supplies when making holiday cards!

step 3: Trim trees from another sheet of paper from the same Sugar Plum collection and adhere them to the card. Add a chipboard tree and star (also from MME collection) for extra depth!

step 4: Trim the tree with Adhesive Sequins by Jillibean Soup. If only decorating my real tree were so quick, easy, and mess free. 😉


Done and done—a simple holiday card that requires very few supplies!

To see how I turned the second half of this design into a gift-card holder/card, check out my blogHappy holiday card-making season, dear friends! I hope your WCMD celebration sparkles!
