Happy National Card Making Day!

6 Oct


For those of you who don’t know today is the 7 th Annual National Card Making Day. You can view more information about the event here. To celebrate I have decided to make today’s post a combination of my top 5  favourite handmade card DIY’s as well as my own little project. To get things started here are my favourite 5 projects from across the web. Enjoy!

1. DIY Pop Up Cards from Oh happy Day
2. Spotted Gift Box Card DIY From Homespun with heart
3. Knitted Flower Cards from Ideas For Cards
4. Photo DIY Card by Ceria Design

5. Floral Map Pop Up Cards from Bour3

So there you have it 5 of my favourite card making DIY’s from the web. Inspired from my research and these great DIY”s I decided to create a card for a friend who is moving overseas to start her new career. I choose to use a few significant pieces to make up the card to make it be that little more special. Firstly I used a (fuzzy) Polaroid picture from our Byron Trip earlier this year, a map heart (as seen in my Garland DIY) to represent her travels, a butterfly to signify that she is finally free of her studies and a cute yellow bow to represent our friendship. Sweet or corny? I don’t know, but nevertheless I know she will love it. Here’s the final result;

Happy Card Making Day and be sure to share your creations! Becky, xo
