if you don't know what world card making day is, here's a little history: (taken from world card making day)
World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by
Paper Crafts magazine in an effort to bring card makers together at the busiest
card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The
initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however,
due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card
making, Paper Crafts recognized the need to expand, and the holiday transformed
into World Card Making Day.Now in its second year, World Card Making Day has
been expanded to include a dedicated web site; a wider, more inclusive level of
sponsorship; and a marketing campaign designed to get the word out at the
grassroots level. These steps were taken in hopes of uniting the card-making
community (hobbyists, retailers, manufacturers, and more) and celebrating the
connection and creativity that is at the heart of card making.
