Happy World Card Making Day from Simon Says Stamp!
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.
And of course you are looking for inspiration to get those Christmas cards started, so here are some beautiful projects from Suzy Plantamura, Nicki Baxley, and Barbara Tarayao using some products from our STAMPtember® 2022 release!
Suzy used the Sugar Rush cling stamp for this sweet (literally!) Christmas card.
Nicki used the Circle Sayings stamp set with bold stripes for this eye-catching holiday card.
Barbara used the Ornament Options stamp set and coordinating die to create these festive Christmas tags perfect for the gift giving season.
