A set of Diwali cards!

by mudra craftstamps
Good day everyone! Hope you are having a great start to your week. Gayatri from Handmadebyg3.com here with you today. I apologise for my late post today. Just got mixed up about the dates. Anyway here I am with a bunch of Diwali cards to share.
But first, have you entered your project for the Diwali card making contest? All details are below.

So make sure you have a cuppa ready and enjoy my set of Diwali cards. 
  • On this card, I used the new Diwali release dies. The Diya die and the Diwali die.
  • For the background, I used distress inks and the Rangoli stencil. The colours of distress inks I used are Wilted Violet, Picked raspberry and Abandoned Coral.
  • I chose the traditional rich colours plus the gold glitter to add to the festivity of Diwali. These colours reminds me of traditional Kanchepuram silk sarees.
  • Finally some gold stickles to embellished the card.

Here are some closeups of the card.

This is the first card I made in this set. I like it so much a made a set of four similar cards. 
Card 1

Card 2

  • I kept the background same distress ink colours to the first card. They are Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral. 
  • I used Rangoli stencil and sponged the same inks to add interest to the background.
  • The solid Diya dies are die cut on carstock sponged with yellow distress inks and layered with the detail die, die cut using the gold glitter cardstock.
  • The Diwali die is die cut using black cardstock and layered with the backer die die cut in yellow cardstock.
  • The Happy sentiment is from Diwali Decoratives stamp set which I gold heat embossed on a strip f the black cardstock.
  • The card is embellished in gold sequins.

Card 3

Card 4

  • I changed up the colours on the background and on the Diya to make another two card. 
  • I went with pinks and reds for the background. 
  • The distress inks colours I used are Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Abandoned Coral and Barn Door. 
  • For the  Diya, I used Mustard Seed, Fossilised Amber, Ripe Persimmon and Twisted Citron.

All the supplies I used to make these cards are listed below.

I adore these festive cards, the background you have made using rangoli stencil looks very appropriate for Diwali. The glittery diya dies acts like icing on top of cake.
Love them. Yeah, they resemble colorful silk sarees.
