World Card Making Day

Brilliant excuse (as I would need one) to get crafty - today is the 10th World Card Making Day holiday. Time to get creative and let your friends and love ones all over the World know you are thinking about them. Old-fashioned snail mail, it's always so lovely to get some.

World Card Making Day was originaly National Card Making Day and founded by Paper Crafts magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year.  First held on October 7, 2006, it is now celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October.

I made a card using awesome Spray Webbing stamp together with Feather Bird, both from Lost Coast Design.

First I painted the card base, then I glued some very very thin paper on it (Is it called rice paper or decoupe paper?).  I stamped  Feather Bird  using VersaFine black ink and then I stamped Spray Webbing with VersaMark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Some brown DI and a sentiment ... that's how my Bold raven in a forest was made ... and will be flying to the other side of the world.

So make a card - Be bold!
