Exclamation World Card Making Day!

Hey Hey Sweet Shoppers! Today (10/2) is World Card Making Day and to celebrate, Julie is giving away this fantastic card template as a freebie!

I have 2 samples that I made, but after being unexpectedly without internet I don't have the photos ready to show you all. I promise I'll get them up tomorrow morning!

Now to make this a little bit more fun, we're going to have a hybrid card contest! I want to see some gorgeous new hybrid cards that you whip up between now and sunday night at midnight (EST). One random winner will be chosen to win a $10 coupon to Julie's store! You don't have to use the template to be entered into the drawing, but you do have to share a new card that's never been in the galleries before. Just post here in the thread with an image and a link to the gallery page so we can all leave each other some lovin'!

Have fun with this, I can't wait to see what you all whip up!

ETA: Here are the 2 cards I made with this awesome template from Julie! A boy card and a girl card using Meg's new Cute as a Button Boy/Girl kits!






ETA: Congrats to Helen Vader who was our random winner for this challenge! I'll be PMing you with your coupon code.
Thanks so much to everyone that played along!

Thanks, Julie and Colleen! I love the style of this instead of the plain folded cards I usually make. Perfect timing, too, since next weekend is my sister's wedding and DS's birthday.

I've made this with Julie's fab template - all tied up with twine for a more rustic look

I'm loving this template as well! So far I've made 4 cards, will post as soon as I make some photo documentation. :-)

Thanks, Julie and Col!

Can we include one we made on October 1st? I had to get a card in the mail real quick for my mom's birthday (although belated)....I loved this sterling silver charm ... it's a family charm (one heart for each child in the family) and bought it to send to my mom.



Thank you for the template! I will try it out ... hopefully by your deadline ... we're literally on the road at this moment (of typing) towards home ... so will be in this evening ... and then off to the Kansas Speedway Sunday morning for the NASCAR race (which I have to unload/rename/organize literally hundreds of pictures off the memory card first) ...

I'm glad you all are liking the template! What you see is the first ever card that I made, so I promise it is SUPER EASY! And all you need is a kit, one piece of photo paper or cardstock, a printer, and a little piece of ribbon. Easy peasy! Or be awesome like Col and don't even use ribbon! Those are great cards, Col!

Great work on all the cards!

Someone will win a $10 coupon to my store!

So fun and easy! Thanks for the template and inspiration.

I have a card coming after bedtime tonight. I didn't use the template for this one, but I KNOW it'll get some use in the very near future!

I'm going to be using this template a lot (and stealing Colleen's idea to use shapes across the join)! Thanks.

One more from me. I have to print 20+ of these to mail tomorrow, so no fun template with flaps that need to be cut out for this one.

You've got 4 more hours to get your card posted and linked in this thread for the chance to win a $10 coupon to Julie's store!

Such a great challenge. I'll use the template at some point, but the children weren't exactly cooperative today, so I went, semi-simple.
