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.
Celebrating its seventh year in 2012, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It's a day for the card-making community—
hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers—
to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making. Join us in the fun on October 6
, for World Card Making Day 2012!
