I’m a crafting machine today! In just 34 days, I’m headed to Miami to start my adventure on The Paper Crafts Cruise!
So here I sit, cranking out 60 (yes, 60!) cards for the card swap that will take place on the cruise. All of the attendees will bring a set of cards to share with the other cruisers, so we’ll walk away with a set of cards created by all of our new friends!
To make it easy on myself, I’ve been doing my cards in stages. First I cut all 60 of my card bases, and then I moved on to scoring them. That left me with a stack of 60 little canvases to work with.
Next, I went to my trusty scrap stash again (ala this post by Betsy Veldman and this post and this post) and started pairing some of my favorite patterns and colors together. I cut three strips and reserved one to be added horizontally later.
Then, I added a strip that I had notched on one end and tied a black ribbon in a knot around it for a uniform look.
My last step will be to add a computer generated sentiment (similar to these seen below), and then I’ll punch them and adhere them with foam tape.
It’s a fun way to spend the day, and I’m excited to meet people from all around the world on the cruise who love card making as much as I do!
Now step away from the computer and create some cards!
P.S. We have four more editors to share World Card Making Day with, so make sure to check back to see what they have to say!
