World Card Making Day!!


Happy World Card Making Day everyone!!  Today I am participating in the WCMD Operation Write Home blog hop.  You can begin the blog hop here.

Today OWH asked us to do Winter/Holiday cards based on sketches.  OWH has a bunch of card sketches, you can find them all here.

I used their sketch 62:


To make this card:


My card uses a variety of collections from Fancy Pants.  :)

And then I used OWH's sketch 77:


To make this card:


You can also find this card on the Fancy Pants blog today, along with another card I created that I will not be posting here.  :)  This card uses the fabulous Home For Christmas collection from Fancy Pants.

And then the last card I am sharing today uses my own sketch #4 from this post:

 
And here is the card:



It too uses the fabulous Home For Christmas collection from Fancy Pants.

And Speaking of Fancy Pants...they want to give away a package of goodies to one lucky person who leaves a comment on my post today.  So leave me a comment and you will be entered into the drawing!!!  :)  

And speaking of giveaways....you won't want to miss my HUGE WCMD day giveaway here.

And speaking of sketches, I shared five new sketches and a challenge with a prize here.  Hope you play along.

Well I think that's about it.  Go back here to find out who to hop to next.

Have a fabulous day today!!!

I just love all of your cards but the folded circles one is one I am definitely gonna have to give a try! Thanks for the inspiration!!! And the cahnce to win some goodies too :)

KellyRae said...

Gorgeous cards Pamela! I like how you used the polaroid frame sketch to highlight the patterned paper and added those fun embellies on the frame part. The stitched circles on the second card are a GREAT frame idea. But the third card is my favorite. I've used the circles folded into squares idea to make an eight-sided trinket box but never thought to use the individual pieces as elements on a card...AWESOME look! Happy WCMD!

Emily said...

These are fabulous! I just pinned that one with the bird from the fancy pants blog! I also love the reindeer card with those folded circles...what a great sketch!
