Floral Extravaganza & a Non Traditional Rakhi Card

Hello Everyone!! Indira here again today with 3 cards. Two of them are out and out floral cards while one is a very Non Traditional Rakhi Card since I did not have any Rakhi stamps.

Card no.1 - Floral Double Gatefold Card

1. Prepared the Double Gatefold card base with a cream colored diamond texture CS.
2. Made the belly band with same paper and created the base for the flowers, using die cuts.
3. Stamped the flowers, leaves and fussy cut them.
4. Arranged them on belly band and added few sequins.
5. Took another die cut and stamped sentiment on it.
6. Made a pocket to hold the tags for messages.

This is how the card looks when the belly band is removed and it is opened.

3. Added the foliage around the floral bouquet.
4. Stamped the sentiment.
5. Added few sequins.

Card no. 3 - Non-Traditional Rakhi Card

1. Stamped the sentiment in the center of the card.
