Welcome back for this week’s Unscripted Sketch! Glad you could stop by! And…Happy World Card Making Day!
Some background about this holiday:
World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however, due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card making, the holiday became known as World Card Making Day from then on.
Celebrating its fifth year in 2010, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It’s a day for the card-making community — hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers — to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making.
What better way to celebrate World Card Making Day than with another fun sketch challenge at Unscripted Sketches? So…let’s check out this week’s sketch!
I used the sketch to make a birthday card (because October 3 is my birthday!) with some cute papers from Sassafrass’s Indie Girl collection!
I colored the cake image, which is from Savvy Stamps, with colored pencils and some gel pens, and added stitching detail around the image with a micro-tip felt pen. I die-cut the scalloped circle and accented it with a gel pen.
The ribbon and border strip design are also from Sassafras. The sentiment stamp is by Stampin’ Up! SU Night of Navy and Chocolate Chip were used to stamp the image and sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll have fun playing along with us this week at Unscripted Sketches and I wish you a creative and fun World Card Making Day!
