Diwali Cards!!

Hello friends!!! I am sure you all must be preparing for the festive season. I am really getting ready for it too and today I have few cards which I have created keeping the upcoming Hindu festival Diwali in my mind.So let's get started.

First Card set -

  • I made a set of two cards which has a festive touch on it.
  • On a watercolor panel used Distress inks to color only the corner of the panel using two shades for each card and gold embossed the image from the "Deepavali" set. 
  • Added some gold splatters using acrylic paint.
  • Stamped the sentiment from the "Diwali Sentiments"in two shades and added to the panel with some gold embroidery thread.
  • I wanted clean and simple look for my cards with touch of bright colors and gold and I am really happy how they turned out.

Second Card -

  •  I stamped and clear embossed the "Shree Ganesha" image form the "Om Shree" set using Distress ink on a watercolor card stock.
  • After that I masked the panel using masking tape which I tore for uneven look and used the gold acrylic paint on the background.
  • Added the panel on a gold card panel and added it to the main card base.
  • This card reminds me of a wedding card.

Third card -

  • On a colored card base I stamped the images from the "Henna Elements" set using Distress ink and Memento ink.
  • The sentiment is from the "Diwali Sentiment" set which I stamped using the same inks.
  • This color combination looks very traditional and this was a super simple card.

Fourth Card -

  • On a gold glossy card base I stamped one of the border from the "Madhubani Border" set using the "Antique Linen" Distress ink for tone on tone look and cut the edges using decorative edge scissors. 
  • Added a patterned paper to the inside of a card base which was having bright colors and touch of gold. 
  • Gold embossed the mini "Diya" stamp and colored the image using Zig markers.
  • Added the image and the sentiment on the card.

 Hope you will like my cards. If you have any questions or suggestions, please leave a comment.
