Happy World Cardmaking Day! a little SCT and Portfolio

Good Morning!

I always look forward to a day dedicated to crafting (not that I ever have a chance to play along, lol) and today is that day!  World Cardmaking Day!  I have found myself making more and more cards.  I look around at all my scrapbooks filled with layouts and wonder what my house will look like if I continue at this feverish pace.  I will have to have a spare room specifically for scrapbooks!  Cards offer an opportunity to get crafty and then send it away.  :)

I shared a sneak of the following card on my Portfolio kit post here:

It's up on the Scrapbook and Cards Today blog today.  Be sure to check it out.  The team got together and created a card for every month of the year.  You'll find cards and instructions.  You'll also find plenty of chances to win free crafty goodies so be sure to head over there!

This is the card I created for the day, based on a June 2011 sketch from Pagemaps which you can find here.

1.  Trim card base at 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
2.  Trim base patterned paper the same size.
3.  Trim patterned paper in strips at approximately 3/8 inches wide, depending on your patterned paper.  I used a 6x6 paper pad and based my strips on the blue chevron pattern.  Repeat for a second patterned paper.
4.  Weave patterned paper strips, trim, and adhere on upper left side of card.
5.  Add felt buttons and flag pin.
6.  Stamp sentiment on cardstock, emboss, and trim.  Adhere with pop dots on card.

I hope you have a great WCMD!

Danielle created some cards with our Portfolio kit that you can check out on this post.  We both will be sharing more projects you can create with this fun kit and the fun products from Pink Paislee under the tag "Portfolio kit" at the bottom of our posts.  :)

I will be back later this afternoon to share another card created with Echo Park products this time and instructions too.
