Hi everyone and happy World Cardmaking Day!
The custom of giving greeting cards is a tradition that can be traced back to the early Egyptians, who conveyed their special messages on papyrus scrolls; and the ancient Chinese who exchanged messages of goodwill to celebrate the new year. Fast forward to today, and we find the custom of giving, and creating handmade cards, is enjoyed around the world by young and old alike.
To celebrate World Cardmaking Day today some of our team have created a selection of handmade cards to inspire you.
First up, are two beautiful cards from Anita Bownds. She created these cards using our ‘Bohemian Dream’ collection and cut files designed by Paige Evans.
Our next card is from Rachel Lowe, who used our new ‘Unforgettable’ collection to create this breathtaking card featuring a shaker pocket and an adorable 3D hot air balloon.
A pretty pair of cards from Anna Komenda, who said “I am not a cardmaker by heart but I love adding cards to all of my gifts. That’s why I like to keep them simple and flat. This duet was made with the brand new ‘Unforgettable’ collection with leftovers after making a layout. Quick and easy but still handmade and cheerful.”
“Hello” from Amanda, who also joined in to create a gorgeous card. She said “Florals, woodgrain, tassels & bows – what more can I say?! This 4″ x 8″ card was created with the beautiful ‘Unforgettable’ collection & a Cut To You – floral bouquet set – cut file.”
Finally, rounding our our card inspiration for today is another pair of cards, this time from Sue. She said “Although I am not usually a cardmaker, creating these cards with the ‘Unforgettable’ collection was easy and fun – I may even make more!”
We hope you have enjoyed all the handmade card inspiration from our team today and that you might feel inspired to create a card or two as well. Remember to share your creations in our Facebook Community Group or on Instagram using the hashtag #cocoavanillastudio
