World Cardmaking Day 7:00 a.m. kickoff with Becky Fleck!


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!

    After completing a project, I use up the [small-ish] scraps by making cards. (The “green” in me just HATES! throwing paper away.) It would be so wonderful to have the inspiration of CardMaps!
