Happy World Card Making Day!!





How exciting that we card maker's have our own day to shine!!

Today is World Card Making Day and do we have some fun planned for you!!



Many of the Unity and Ippity DT members have created challenges for you so you can participate in this fun event.  Just head over to the Unity Challenge Forum to look for all the WCMD challenges that have been created for you.  You will have two weeks to participate and one lucky participant in my challenge (USCWCMD21) will win the Faith Blooms stamp set for participating!  Have fun!!


My challenge for you is to create a ONE LAYER CARD!

SCS Keyword: USCWCMD21
you have two weeks to complete this challenge and upload it
 to the SCS Gallery using the key word above.


It's OK if you add an embellishment to your layer, but ONLY have ONE layer of paper!!

Here is the card that I created for this challenge!!

To make my card I used the Ippity Stamp set called Quotes A La Happy which is one of my favorites from the Summer Release!  Do you want and Ippity stamp set???  Just click HERE to find an Ippity Chick selling Ippity stamps near you!!  



To enhance a ONE LAYER CARD, you might consider doing things like I did above.  I used my Scor-Pal to make an embossed frame around the sun and I also added some paper piercing.  Then below my sentiment I added an organza ribbon!




I colored in my sun image with Copic markers and love how the bright and sunny colors just pop off the page and give more dimension despite the fact that the image is only one dimensional!



And isn't this sentiment just the bomb???  What a wonderful statement to live by.  This world is negative enough, so I hope that this can inspire all of us to bring a little sunshine into it!!



So, to celebrate WCMD, please go to both the PaperCrafts blog 
to see many more blogs on today's HOP that have some special creations to share with you, 

AND

Don't forget to stop by the Unity Forum's Challenge blog to participate in all the
 WCMD challenges for many chances to win!!

There are lots of prizes up for grabs if you participate in all the Unity/Ippity Challenges!!

Have a great day and enjoy making cards for this special occasion!!
