Welcome to our World Card Making Day Blog Hop.

Yes! It's WORLD CARD MAKING DAY! We have a great hop for you today and I think you will be inspired by all of the designers on it.  There are just so many unique ideas using current Stampin' Up!® Products. You are currently visiting my blog - Stampin and Scrappin with RiRi in the United States and you will be visiting lots of different places today. There is a list toward the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog so you see 25 to 30 amazing projects you can feel free to CASE.

Here's my card today that we will be making in my WORLD CARD MAKING DAY class.
My card design is called the DOUBLE DUTCH FOLD CARD.  It was on Splitcoast years ago and I found the idea revisited on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.

I chose to use the stamp set SUNSHINE WISHES and the coordinating thinlits SUNSHINE SAYINGS.  Believe it or not, the designer paper by SU! (which is on sale Oct. 1 - Buy 3 packages get 1 FREE) is from the HOLIDAY CATALOG called CANDY CANE LANE.

I like to stamp the inside of my card and here I added the cut out heart that is the negative of the scribbly die on the front.  Colors in this card are WHISPER WHITE, BLUSHING BRIDE, and CRUMB CAKE.

I'm so glad you have joined us today and have visited my blog.  Remember to check out all the others as there are so many amazing ideas and inspiring ideas that you don't want to miss.
