Can you even imagine all the buzz going on among crafters world wide as they celebrate World Card Making Day?  My digi company Daydream Designs in hopping on the bandwagon too and we are so excited to be doing a fun give away.

I created a new image...

Plus, you will have a chance at a super give away! 
Those sets could be yours!  
All the details are on the store blog,  
We'll be playing all weekend starting 
in the wee hours Saturday morning.

Here are a couple of samples to showcase the new sets.

I've been in hedgehog heaven lately...just having a blast creating these little guys, plus making cards to give them a proper home.  I think these images say it all...isn't it so fun to give a handmade card to someone and watch their face light up when they realize you made it just for them!?  I love that feeling.  It makes me feel like I'm giving them a little bit of me.

I created this card from a 3-3/4" x 7-1/2" card base folded.  I die cut two scallop squares (SU), and adhered them to the front and back of the card base.  Since the scallop square is larger, the card rests on the scallops and the base is hidden.  Works perfectly.

I used nestabilities for the smooth and scallop circles, and they do nest perfectly.  Of course, I have to use my bow maker for all my bows now, and this one is a triple loop bow using satin ribbon from Stampin' Up!  I recolored the sentiment to match the turquoise (SU) and I copied/pasted it right above my image so it could be cut out at the same time.  Easy peasy!

For my second sample I used the Hedgehog Fall Frolics set, pulling the main image and one of the papers provided in the set.

This is a flip card, using the framelit by Stampin' Up! These card folds always get rave reviews.  I always pull a regular card base up through the framelit, so it makes an extra fold, rather than the shorter card created by the die.  That way my inside message is covered, and it give another inside panel for decorating.

To pull cardstock up through the die to make a longer card, I cut my card base at 5-3/8"...just slightly less than the normal 5-1/2 x 8-1/2.  You can keep the 8-1/2" dimension, so you can make that extra fold on the right.  A score line from that right side is actually made automatically as the pulled up paper passes over the top of the die.  Pretty nifty!

And here's how the inside looks.  I've used a sentiment from the Hedgehog Happiness set.  You get both colored and outline images, plus the sentiments all in one cutsie little set.  Why not join our little WCMD challenge on the Daydream Designs Blog for the chance to WIN these sets!!!
