Today I am joining Chaitali and her friends for a blog hop celebrating Diwali, the festival of light. I personally do not celebrate Diwali, but I wanted to join in the fun and learn more about this festivity.
I made two cards for this occasion. The first one is super simple and very easy to make:
I embossed the word Celebrate from Altenew’s Super Script set directly on the black card base. I used Ranger’s “Roman Gold” embossing powder, which is a combination of glitter and gold embossing powder. To add the star sequins, I placed dots of glue in random places, and placed the stars on them using a QuickStik. I think the tiny stars look like little speckles of light!
In my next card there is a little sneak peek of an upcoming stamp set by Altenew! The leafy branches were sitting on my work top and I couldn’t resist using them!
The flowers are from Altenew’s Scribbled Flowers set, and the greeting is from the Label Love set. Since Diwali is a celebration of light, I thought the card needed some gold/sparkly element. I added a shiny strip of gold tape, and a few drops of gold glitter to complement the tape.
Notice that both my cards have the “celebrate” theme. With their sparkly elements, I think they will be nice cards to give to someone on Diwali, but they can also be used for other happy occasions.
That is it from me! Join in and participate in the hop to learn more about the festival and see some beautiful ethnic creations! Your next and final stop is Neon Diary by Shipla.
