Christmas Card

Hello All,

I'm sure everyone is gearing up for Christmas and New Year. With the celebrations soon to begin, here is a classic Christmas card, made using the recipe from Indian Craft Room :)


On to the card.



So here is a mouthful of green and red, with the toppings of heat embossing.

This card has my first try on heat embossing! The butterfly and the handwritten sentiment.
Not bad for the first try huh? :)
There is a lot to improve anyways!


Guess how the snowflakes background is done? A simple technique to use punch outs of the same color to resemble dry embossing. I'm glad the outcome is as how I expected it to be.

Do let me know your feedback!

Pink & Purple

Hello All,

The next card is inspired from the flavour board at Indian Craft Room.


Here goes my card.


I loved the combination of pink and purple, and this card just seemed perfect from the mood board.

I have used circle punch outs from pink patterned card stock. The flowers are from purple patterned paper from a pamphlet.

P.S: I love to reuse any paper with a good pattern and have a good collection of scraps from magazine cutouts, invitation cards, pamphlets :P

Do let me know how it is :)

Diwali Rocket Card

With Diwali round the corner, here comes a card in the shape of a rocket depicting the colors of Diwali.


This card has been made out of old wedding invitations, reusing them to categorize under ‘Best-out-of-waste’ concept. The base of the card, as well as the borders used on the nose of the rocket are from wedding invitations.
The main body of the rocket is created using the Iris folding technique, using glittery green and gold sheets, along with the blue border.
The stem of the rocket is made using newspaper weaving technique, newspaper covered with a white sheet. The red stripes are created using a Red quilling strip.
The nose of the rocket features a wheel cracker punch craft, along with a hand written sentiment wishing Diwali. A woolen thread along with punched flower is used to depict the wick and lit spark.

Diwali Card

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post :) 


Here is a Diwali card created using Tea bag folding technique. 


With the thought of using the least amount of materials, I have reused an old wedding invitation for the card base. The background pattern and tea bag folded flower are made out of shiny color papers. The wishes are hand written and the lamps are manually cut.
