Ethnic Diwali Cards

Hello to all!

I am back again with new inspiration!

Diwali is a most famous festival of lights celebrated in India. Each of the Hindu people started planning before a month to celebrate this festival.  Invited their friends and family members and wishes them! So I created an ethnic and festive Diwali Cards!

I have combined the two different stencils to create my first Diwali Celebration card!

My card base is in bright yellow. I took the daisy floral stencil and cover the half of the front card Using carved pumpkin ink. I stencil the design as shown in the pic with Ombre effect.

 Then I took Candied apple ink and stencil the design again overlapping it, love the result!

    Now I die cut one small and one big circle to make my own stencil. I covered the white border layer with my circle die sheet and put the daisy floral stencil and applied the ink (Keep the small circle between the daisy floral stencil to keep the circle white). Now I wanted to highlight a Diya only. So I covered the white border sheet again and applied ink through the Diya stencil. Now distress the edges applied candied apple ink.

                                 Die cut the borders out of bright red and whisper white CS.

               Die cut celebrate word and now applied both the layers at my card base as shown in the pic. Now time to embellish it. Highlighted it with few gems and yellow glitter glue dots.
