Happy World Card Making Day from Simon Says Stamp!

 

Simon Says Stamp World Card Making Day 2018

Happy World Card Making Day from Simon Says Stamp! It’s a holiday created just for all of us, and we’re excited to share inspiration with you!

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.

Two of the best things about card making are inspiration and creative connections, and today we’re bringing you both with inspiring creations from designers in 5 different countries!  Each designer has created a holiday card using the Simon Exclusive Ornate Ornaments stamp set from our 2018 STAMPtember® release.

Let’s take a journey around the globe and be inspired. And stick with us, because there are prizes to be won, because every good holiday deserves gifts!

Yoonsun’s take on the Ornate Ornaments stamp set features beautifully colored baubles on a natural kraft background to let the ornaments sparkle. I love the soft effect she created with colored pencils and the twine toppers are terrific!

Ooooh, this color combination from Amy is so festive and fantastic! The deep Christmasy scarlet with silver accents is incredibly eye-catching, don’t you agree? And the aqua takes her design from the traditional red and green of the holidays.

Debby embraced her Scottish heritage with a plaid background to anchor the gorgeously colored ornaments. I love the unexpected holly berries at the top, and the sequins add just the right amount of sparkle for the holidays!

It’s pretty cool to see how the designers were all able to put their own unique spin on the Ornate Ornaments stamp set. Yana’s signature dramatic designs on dark backgrounds make for a stunning and simple design. It’s also nice and flat for mailing and a less time-intensive design perfect for mass production.
