Hello everyone, your humble editor is here to welcome you to the 2014 SCT World Cardmaking Day celebration! We are so glad you are joining us for this stellar, all-day cardmaking affair which will end at 11:00 p.m. tonight! Together with our talented designers, some special guests and generous partners, we are bringing you a full day of inspiration, techniques, free downloads and give-aways galore!
I am kicking off the festivities with an exclusive card sketch and downloadable digital file of the holly wreath you see here on my card. This card features the new “Oh Deer” collection by Fancy Pants. Love their new sequins!
Click HERE to download the digital version of the wreath. The zip file includes a high resolution jpeg and png file that you can resize and print for your own personal use. I hope you enjoy it!
Have a wonderful cardmaking celebration today! Join Marla Kress next hour!
7:00 a.m. GIVEAWAY!!!
We wanted to kick off World Cardmaking Day in a big way with not one but TWO prizes! The first prize is from one of our amazing partners, American Crafts! American Crafts recently debuted the beautiful new "Shimelle" collection and we can hear your ooohs and aaaaahs from here! Have a look at this gorgeous collection…
"Retro meets modern in the debut, signature collection from Shimelle and American Crafts. Go somewhere lovely and have an adventure with this colorful collection! The trendy color palette and vintage-inspired illustrations join classic icons of cameras, suitcases, typewriters and hearts for a uniquely adorable collection. Tell your story in hues of mint, soft pinks, bold reds, lime green and touches of shimmering gold foil." ~ American Crafts
Our second prize today is from US! Throughout the day today you'll see various sketches from this special issue, CardMaps 4 and we would love to give one away! With 56 CardMaps sketches and over 90 different card designs, this has been a favourite special issues for years…and will be for years to come!
Each hour today we will have amazing prizes from our partners just for you. For an opportunity to win these great prizes, please leave a comment in the comments section below by Friday, October 17!
