Hello friends! WOW! Our inbox was packed full of amazing card creations made for our World Card Making Day challenges. We were so inspired by what you created, and wish that we could share each project with you. Let’s take a look at a few submissions from each challenge and announce the winners! Scroll down to find out if your card has been featured!
Our colour challenge from Cathy Zielske brought a warm analogous colour scheme to your crafty space to kick off WCMD, and these beautiful cards certainly met that challenge:
And the winner of this challenge is:
Marcie, congratulations! We love this amazing die cut heart filled with perfect warm hues!

And the winner of this challenge created a card which featured a rainbow of patterns to brighten our day:
Elise, congratulations! We love your sweet card with all of those lovely clouds!
Challenge three from guest Jenn Shurkus had us using one stamp in three different ways. These card makers took up this challenge and created something wonderful:
Our winner used a sweet fox in three different ways:
Congratulations, Leeds! Your three cards are wonderful!
Challenge four came from Editor-in-Chief Susan R. Opel, who challenged us to get inspired by any project featured in our Fall 2020 issue! We love the way that these papercrafters took the inspiration project, then made it their own to create these cards:
Carol, inspired by Julie Charnock’s layout on page 73
Kerys, inspired by Nicole Nowosad’s “Hello Autumn” layout on page 49
Megan, inspired by the fall vineyards cards on page 56
Jessica, inspired by Lydia Cost’s layout on page 15
Jen, inspired by the “Family” layout by Aurélie Cormier on page 69
Our winner was not only inspired by Nathalie DeSousa’s layout on page 23 of the fall issue, but she used our free cut file as well:
Claire, we love your beautiful die cut leaves and bold contrasting design!
Our final challenge of the day came from fellow card maker Mindy Eggen, who provided a simple and fun sketch to help you create! These card makers interpreted the sketch in so many different and creative ways:
Our winner created two different cards using the same sketch:
Congratulations, Thanh! We love that you used our SCT Sampler to create these two lovely cards with the sketch!
