I recently started thinking about my Thanksgiving cards for this year and realized that I completely forgot about Halloween cards.
I almost can’t believe that… because Halloween is my favorite holiday and my favorite cards to make!
I personally need to plan my handmade cards over a month before the actual holiday or event. That way, it gives me time to do some shopping for supplies I need, get the cards made (I can’t seem to find the time during the week for this, so I live for my weekend time), and then actually get them in the mail.
I decided I have to get a grip on the upcoming holiday season, so I made myself a list of my card-worthy holidays…
I probably make more cards than most others (for example, I can’t imagine there are many stampers and scrapbookers who celebrate St. Patrick’s Day), but it gives me an opportunity to do something I love to do. At the same time, I can send a little something to family and friends to let them know I’m thinking about them.
A handmade card is much more thoughtful than an email or text message.
Important Card-Worthy Holidays
Here’s my personal list of annual handmade card holidays:
- Valentine’s Day cards – February
- St. Patrick’s Day cards – March
- Easter cards – March/April
- Mother’s Day cards – May
- Father’s Day cards – June
- Independence Day cards – July

Additional Card-Worthy Events
In addition to these card-worthy events, there are a few other holidays that might mean something special to you. For example, someone in your family might have served in the Armed Forces. A card for Memorial Day or Veteran’s Day would show them you’re thinking about them.
Other dates you might want to add to your list of card-worthy holidays:
- New Year’s Day cards – January
- Mardi Gras cards – February/March
- April Fools Day cards – April
- Cinco de Mayo cards – May

I live in Brentwood, Tennessee and write about fun things to see & do there. I also enjoy using rubber stamps and scrapbooking materials to make my own cards. I use Stampin’ Up products for a lot of my handmade cards.
