OCC World Card Making Day!


(for the MTE October Stamp release, scroll down or click here)

It's World Card Making Day! Awesome! I'm hoping I have time to make some today, although my husband and I are going into Boston for a food festival. Should be a fun day no matter what!

Lori is our host this week at Our Creative Corner, and in honor of WCMD, the challenge is to make a project that is inspired by a country other than your own. I wanted to do something a little unexpected, so as I was brainstorming, I remembered a project I did

in 5th or 6th grade. We had to research a foreign country and prepare a presentation. I was assigned Argentina, and I remember sewing their flag (with help from my grandma) to bring to my presentation. It was so cool! It was the first time I ever used a sewing machine too.

For those of you not up on your Argentinian culture (umm...probably a lot of you), here's what their flag looks like:


and here's my card:


This one is getting entered in this week's challenge at SSS.

I hope you enjoy World Card Making Day....make sure to check us out over at OCC to join in the fun!

  5. Very cool - love your sun! Totally brilliant to use the flag for inspiration! I struggled to find inspiration for this challenge and I never thought of a country's flag.

    Hope you had a great tie at the food festival!

    Hugs,

  6. Love it! I think it's all the more special coupled with the memory of sewing it as a child. LOL on the help... yep, I sure needed the visual to picture their flag!

  11. I love this - the bright colors and happy sun are so fun! The embossing on the blue panels really makes them pop. Maybe Argentina should add that to their flag! LOL! Fabulous card!
