I wrote a few posts ago that I would share some Eid cards. Well, finally I am doing it today.
Since Eid, or any other Islamic event/ritual for that matter, does not have any symbolic association with it, the cards don’t really require a theme. I think any card would go, from pretty to cheerful to clean and simple.
First off is a super simple card where I used a border die and made two cards with it:
Next I used the same die but added a little stamping and a tiny butterfly:
Next up is a card where I die cut the vine in white card stock and colored it with red and orange markers.
I also added a few strips of black card stock:
Then I wanted to do a little more inking, so I die cut a label and used the negative as a mask to sponge ink in the center of this next card:
I used the same vine die cut, but this time in black card stock.
And here is the label mask after I had punched all those holes in it:
And with the punched out circles, and together with another die cut, I made two of these:
and then I wanted to do a little more work so I created the next two cards:
In the above card I die cut a label, sponged ink on it and adhered it to the card front. The flowers are stamped and cut with scissors. I wrote “Eid Mubarak” as in all the other cards, but here I filled in the letters with white gel pen.
For the next card I used the negative of the label die cut as the card front. I stamped a chevron background stamp on it and sponged ink around the inner and outer perimeters. The flowers are stamped, cut, and colored with copic markers. I drew two lines for the branches, and made an elaborate banner for the sentiment.
I think there was one more card but I forgot to take a picture of it. It was a simple card using a single die but I had written Eid Mubarak in Arabic. If I get a chance to make it again or ask the cousin to bring it over so I can take a picture of it, I will share it 🙂
I used all memory box dies, except for the label die, which was from Spellbinders.
Thanks for stopping by!
