The first Saturday of each October is the date for this annual event.  The card-making community worldwide, including hobbyists, beginning card makers, manufacturers of card-making products, retail sellers of products, educators, and press are invited to come together to celebrate this creative passion.  It is a day to connect with fellow card makers, both near and far, to applaud the creativity that powers the craft, and to provide and opportunity for card makers to connect and find resources that will empower, inspire, and encourage them in their card-making.

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 fifth year in 2010, World Card Making Day Ocotber 2nd is a day for the card-making community--hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers--to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is at the heart of card making.
