World Card Making Day

World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of 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, the holiday became known as World Card Making Day from then on. 

World Card Making Day is a holiday especially for card makers around the world to:

  • Celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family
  • Kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season

The first Saturday of each October, kicking off the holiday card-making season, the most popular time for creating and sharing handmade greetings

CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS: Beneath the cardstock and embellishments is emotion from teh card maker – encouragement, celebration, commemoration, and love
