And we couldn’t leave out a very Happy World Card Making Day from Simon Says Stamp! It’s a holiday created just for all of us! Last year we shared this epic video, and it’s too good not to share again!

The best thing about World Card Making Day is not only making cards, but the idea that there are people all over the WORLD making cards, too. These people share our passion for creativity and happy mail. In the spirit of this connective nature and to celebrate our favorite holiday, we’ve compiled a video featuring designers from around the world. Meet your favorite designers, peer into their worlds, and hear what they love about making cards (in 8 different languages)!


How fun was that? And now we want to hear from you… tell us your name, where you live, and what YOU love about card making!

World Card Making Day was created in 2006, and the original purpose was to kick-start the holiday card making season. Chances are you make lots of cards for Christmas, but we all know that those beautiful cards don’t come together in one night. So grab your scissors and adhesives and cardstock and stamps and make some cards today! Your family can fend for themselves, right? You deserve to celebrate.

You can check out the entire Season of Wonder collection below:

  1. My name is Erika. I’m in Houston. I’m newer to card making. I love watching people make cards and then learning how to follow a card sketch. I love seeing my improvement with each card I make!!

  2. I’m Susan. I live in Walpole, Massachusetts. I love card making because, even though I can’t draw or paint, I feel like I am producing tiny pieces of art for friends. It makes me feel happy to think that I might put a smile on the recipient’s face when they get my card. They will know that I put love into the card for them.

    Also, card making is always evolving with new techniques and products. I love to watch other maker’s videos. They inspire me.

  3. I’m from Northern California and I love giving handmade cards because I want the recipient to know that they are special and that I am thinking of them. It brings me joy to make cards and I try to spread that joy to others.

  4. I’m from Nova Scotia, Canada and what I enjoy most about making cards is that it allows me to personalize my recipients card based on likes and interests.

  5. What a gorgeous collection for the upcoming season and holidays!! Beautiful inspiration from all the artists too.
