The wake of CHA and all that cute, new holiday product has left us with one thing on our minds here at Paper Crafts.

Holiday card-making.

Witches, turkeys and elves, oh my!

How convenient is it then that the sixth annual World Card Making Day Card Contest is just around the corner?! Tell me you know about it. Tell me you’ve seen the amazing prize package in our September/October 2011 issue. Okay, I’ll wait. Flip to page 11. Or better yet, click HERE. Do you see that number?

One. Thousand. Dollars.

I’ll pause while you get back in your chair and your breathing regulates. Please be advised: Excessive drooling may cause electrical shortages in keyboards and computer monitors.

That’s right. This year’s World Card Making Day Card Contest features the biggest prize package we’ve ever offered, thanks to our amazing sponsors! Without them, this card contest wouldn’t be possible, and we would be left craving holiday inspiration for the cold months ahead. Thankfully, our friends and Gold sponsors at American Crafts, EK Success, Klic-N-Kut and Spellbinders have helped us create one incredible prize package for our loyal readers.

    Squeal!!!! WOW – what an incredible prize package … Paper Crafts and their sponsors are AMAZING! Good luck to all who will enter projects – I do not envy your job of reviewing and choosing (well, I kinda do – it would be SO MUCH FUN to review all the amazing submissions … but very difficult to choose only four!). What a fantastic day!
