World card making day blog hop with WOW! embossing....!!

 Hey my crafty friends and welcome to a SUPER awesome blog hop to celebrate World Cardmaking day with WOW! Embossing....!!

Here's a little bit of info for you all about WCMD...

Card Making Day reminds us that the best gifts come from the heart, and the hands and vision of the people we love, so get out there and try making a card of your own! Nowadays, with the advancements in technology and the rise of the Internet, some people have stopped sending cards altogether. Instead, they send email cards. While there is nothing wrong with this, no one can deny that receiving a beautiful card feels a lot nicer. This is especially the case when the other person has gone to the effort of making the card!

To make sure your personalised, handmade card is met with a beam of delight rather than a sigh of regret, here are some mistakes to avoid.

History of Card Making Day
Cards have played an important role in social circles for hundreds of years, playing a role as a thoughtful gift all the way to a necessary part of proper etiquette. Consider, if you will, the calling card of the Victorian era, a term that has become so ubiquitous that the signature element of a bomb-maker or a criminal is said to be their ‘calling card’.

A small piece of paper bearing one’s name and often a decoration of some kind, the calling card (Also known as a visiting card) was presented to the servants of a household that it might be delivered to the masters of the house to announce visitors.

It was this era of propriety that also developed the concept of a dance card, a card specifically carried by women to fill out with the names of the men they intended to dance with that evening. After all, with so many interested parties it just made sense to keep track of them so that you could, in earnest, indicate that your dance card was full and thus politely decline an interested suitor.

Calling Cards, Dance Cards, Business Cards, Greeting Cards, RSVP Cards, there are a million and more types of cards and could there be anything more exciting than learning to make your own? Card Making Day encourages you to do just that.

I know I love creating cards it's always so much fun to play with all the different crafty goodies and see what I can come up with...

Here is my card for WCMD, I hope you enjoy it...

I used a fun die set from Sugarpea designs called "You're my type" and embossed all the pieces using WOW! Embossing powders POP, BANG and FIZZ!!

I love the awesome effect these powders have and the colours are just gorgeous...

I added my embossed die cut piece to a white shaker card base that I made using a die from Honeybee stamps called "Diamond patterns" and filled with pretty sequins mounted on a blue base....

I finished off the card by adding a piece of paper into the type writer with a lovely sentiment from the Sugarpea designs stamp set "You're my type" and a touch of extra sequins!!
