World Card Making Day
October 01, 2022
To celebrate World Card Making Day, today, I am participating in Kathryn's Blog Hop with my lovely friend Kathryn Mangelsdorf from South Australia. The blog hop participants are Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all around the world each sharing a card made recently. Kathryn M. has also challenged us to post it within a week to someone special, as we all forget sometimes to send cards that we make and they just sit in a box.
Obviously, I made this card with a very specific person / family in mind, and it's on its way.
I have featured the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper, which is so bright and lovely. The card is sized to fit in a DL envelope, and I have cut the DSP slightly shorter to leave a small rectangle of Basic White on the right hand end, which I have then overlaid with the greeting panel and extra fussy-cut flowers which are popped up on Dimensionals.
The only Melon Mambo coloured ribbon I could find in my stash is a leftover piece from the gorgeous Everything Rosy suite which we had in our range a couple of years ago. It matched so well, and I love the texture, so I decided I was definitely using it.
The sentiment stamps on the front and inside the card are from Peaceful Moments stamp set and are stamped in Melon Mambo ink. I also added a couple of smaller flowers to the inside panel of the card.
Thanks for visiting my blog, I am off to see what the other talented stampers have created for World Card Making Day. I hope you will join me on my journey around the blog hop. And please do leave comments for each participant, we love reading your feedback.

See you on Monday night for another Heart of Christmas!
Oh, how breathtakingly beautiful, but so sad that you needed to make the card. The flowers are perfect, as is the ribbon that you've used.

I love your long larger card, it really features my favourite DSP. Your card is bright and cheerful knowing it's going to someone that has lost someone special in there lives as sympathy cards can be a challenge. Thanks for joining the blog hop.

A delightful card Kathryn. I am sure it will bring comfort to the recipients. I love the way you left part of the white card-stock without DSP but added the label and extra fussy cut flowers. The ribbon is perfect. Xxx

Sympathy cards are always hard to make. Yours is beautiful and will be greatly appreciated I’m sure. Handmade cards can really show you care.

Your card is so beautiful! What a gorgeous card to be sending your friend at a time that is so sad! I love that you have made it a long slim line card. It is just beautiful in every detail!
