March 8 - women day card - Manasa - mudra craft stamps
Hey Guys,
Varshitha here.
It’s already two months since 2021. 2020 has been a year with lots of twist and turns. I am with a lot of hope and positivity for 2021. Thank you for all lovely visitors, its takes a lot to keep a blog active and running. It is a great start for Mudra, we moved to bigger office come warehouse this January. I am thankful for the wonderful start of the year!! 

I also have few announcements to make regarding the change in Mudra creative team members, before getting into today posts.

I thank Manasa Priya for doing a wonderful job in coordinating the Team and the Mudra Blog. Its been short yet a memorable creative journey with her. Let’s wish her the best in her life and craft career. 
Hard to say but yes, it’s a farewell note … This is something I really struggle doing. Though we are connected online, and will always be, its hard to depart someone from a Team.

We have our Sathya Kala Sankaran back in action taking up Blog & DT co-ordinator role.
Welcome back to the role which you rock! Literally!
I have always been amazed by Sathya’s perfection, the efforts she takes to keep the blog on point and coordinating with DTs has been exceptional, I am super happy to see her take the role again.

Now Over to Manasa Priya, Sit back and enjoy the beautiful creation..

“Hello there, This is Manasa Priya here from Upcycled. I am here to share some cards on Mudra Blog today.March reminds me of two things, the beautiful spring Summer of India and  International woman’s day! Well, now it is no longer about making Woman Stronger. We are already a generation of Strong woman who have come a long way. It’s about changing the way world perceives that strength !!I believe, No one can make us Inferior , without our consent. It is we who need to decide how the world treats Us ! Chin up you guys.. wishing you all a very happy International Women’s Day 💪♀️ My cards for today are inspired by the bright and beautiful colors of spring and some positive vibes on women supporting one another. Let’s Dive in!

Card 1  Follow Your Dreams

  • For this card , I began by taking a Pattern paper and folded it in A2 card size to form my card base.
  • Then , for matting the card.. I used an Iris card stock and embossed with musical note pattern  and colored it using Distress oxide in the color Pink

  • Later took two strips of the base card pattern and distressed the edges and added onto the embossed paper.
  • Then added a musical note paper creating deckled edges.
  • I stamped a mannequin with flowers from the Sew Good Stamp set  on to a white card stock , colored it and fussy cut it to make an embellishment.
  • Finally stamped a sentiment, “Follow your dreams, they know their way ” from the Geometric Nature stamp set  and added using a foam tape.
  • Added some enamel dots and Mudra Decor stone Mini to embellish, and it’s done !

Card 2

  • For this card, I began by taking a card base and matting it using a flower embossed white card stock and colored it in pink , green and orange leaving out the center frame.

  • Now I stamped the image from the Art Happiness stamp set and colored it partially and fussy cut to make an embellishment
  • I then placed the woman in the center adding the sentiment March 8 and framed it using the Floral treat square frame Chipzeb
  • Later added some half pearls as the flower centers and finished off the card.

Card 3 Be you

  • For this card, I began by matting a white pola dot embossed card stock onto the base card and colored it in purple and yellow orange

  • Now I took a vellum sheet and deckeled the edges by tearing with hand and mounted it over pola dots leaving out the edges , to tone down the bright colors.
  • Later added a die cut paper frame and a circle woman Chipzeb from the female traveller designer chipboard. Colored and Heat embossed using clear glitter
  • And added a sentiment ” Be You ” from the words boho designer chipboard.

Card 4  Leave a little sparkle wherever you go !

  • For the last card, I adopted a same format of attaching a colored and embossed card stock to the card base. I used the bamboo tree emboss folder for the background.
  • Then i took a pattern paper and cut into a circle and inked the edges and then stamped floral lady stamp and heat embossed it in gold

  • Finally stamped a sentiment, “Follow your dreams, they know their way ” from the Geometric Nature stamp set  and added using a foam tape.

So there are the four cards for today at Mudra. I am signing off from Mudra with these cards with mixed emotions. It’s been an amazing time at Mudra, Varshitha being a sweetheart and I got to manage a highly talented team and the blog. It’s an honor working with a Make in India Brand of International standards. Hope to meet everyone on the other side. “
