About World Card Making Day

When is World Card Making Day? This holiday is the first Saturday in October

World Card Making Day is a special October day. It encourages everyone in the whole wide world, to make a homemade greeting card. I sure bet the card companies won’t like that! How many people are on your list? Make a greeting card for each of them. Then, mail them or give them out in person… that’s more fun.

There are cards for just about every occasion. There are plenty of Ecard greeting card sites where you can prepare and send a card, too. But, nothing says “I care” more than a handmade card that you make right at home.

The card can be made of construction paper. It can be made from a greeting card software package right from your computer. Use your own words to get a message across to the recipient. Decorate it with pictures and images. I bet you will find making cards so much fun, that you will create more than one card.

When you make a homemade card today, don’t feel bad for the big card companies. They make plenty of money off the cards you send the other 364 days of the year.

Make an online Greeting Card or two now.

How to Celebrate World Card Making Day
