World Card Making Day Contest and Events - 2013

Today is a very special day.  It's a time when card makers around the world have an opportunity to gather together, take paper and ink in hand and demonstrate and celebrate their creative passion for card making.  I hope you're one of them.  

Not sure how to take part in this special day.  Well you can look for events in your neighborhood, join a card making challenge at some of the sites I've listed below, or simply invite some friends in to your home and share this day. 

To help you celebrate and kick off the card making season Stampin’ Up is having a contest . . . to inspire you even further! There are two ways to enter.

  • Post a photo of a card (or of you making a card) on Instagram on World Card Making Day. Mention us by typing @stampinup and use the hashtag: #wcmd2013 in the description.
This contest is open to everyone—demonstrators, customers, friends, spouses, children . . . you get the idea! However, there are a few conditions:

  • You must be over the age of 18 to win a prize.
  • You must use Stampin’ Up! products to create your project.
  • You may enter as many times as you wish, but each entry must feature a different card.
  • The contest will last all day on October 5, from midnight to midnight.
  • We will randomly select 100 winners from our English-speaking North American markets to receive a Paper Pumpkin kit.
A selection of pictures will be posted to our World Card Making Day Pinterest board and the winners will be announced in a current update.
