Happy World Card Making Day! Here at FaveCrafts, we couldn’t contain our excitement for the exciting holiday (well, it’s a holiday to us). During a meeting earlier this month, our team decided to celebrate World Card Making Day by hosting an office card swap!
Here’s what we did for the card swap:
- Each person picked the name of a fellow editor out of a bowl.
- All card swap participants were tasked with making a homemade card. It could be as creative or innovative as they wanted it to be . Basically, there were no specifics when it came to the cards – the more creative the craft, the better.
- On the day of the swap, we each presented our homemade cards, Secret Santa-style.
FaveQuilts editor Jessica made a quilted card for Blair, editor of AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes, AllFreeChickenCasseroleRecipes and AllFreeCopycatRecipes. Think outside the box when creating a card – use fabric and other materials you wouldn’t “normally” choose.
Simone, director of social media, created a needlepoint spider for her card for AllFreeHolidayCrafts editor Rachel. Yes, you read right. She actually used needlepoint for her card! Such a cool way to mix up craft styles to create a unique project.
AllFreeSewing editor Kirsten made a card for AllFreeBeadedJewelry editor (and daily driver) Maggie. Cards can fit any occasion, not just birthdays or the holidays. A homemade card is a quick, easy and heartfelt way to say you care.
AllFreeKnitting editor Caitlin created this cute owl card for me! She actually knitted the body of the owl and used glue to add buttons and yarn to the card stock! This card has so many pretty colors and textures – I love displaying it on my desk!
How are you celebrating World Card Making Day?
