Happy Owl-oween

Happy World Card Making Day!


Today, October 5th, is officially World Card Making Day! This holiday is an opportunity to celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family. It’s also a time to get a jump-start on the holiday card-making season!

Designed To Color, has decided to celebrate this special day with an awesome Blog Hop!! Our Design Team and special guests have made some amazing cards! Several of us will also be sharing some card-making tips along the way. 

Please leave a comment on each designer’s blog and then a comment at Designed To Color once you complete the hop. They will pick 1 random winner for a prize package consisting of goodies 
from various sponsors including: 

Crafter's Companion
Yumi & Fumi Handmade
…..just to name a few!

You have until Monday, October 7th, at 11:59pm MST to leave a 
comment on each blog.  The winner will be announced 
on Wednesday, October 9th.  GOOD LUCK!

This is the card I designed for the hop.  My tip for you is to think 
outside the box when it comes to media that can be cut with dies.  
This sparkly corrugated paper cut like butter!

 
Stamp: Darcie
Die: MFT Stamps
Papers: Bo Bunny

I know you will be inspired to create something special for World Card Making Day. Be sure to stop by the Designed To Color  
Facebook Page to share your creations.

See you tomorrow!

Happy WCMD!!! So happy to have you join us on the hop - LOVE that tip. I'm so bad about NOT thinking outside the box like that. I'll have to try cutting some cork next time around. :D I love your googly-eyed owl - so stinking cute! Adds such a fun dimension. **hugs**
