There are many reasons why this post is super special! First of all this is my first ever bloghop and you have no idea how excited I am writing this post :) Then there is Diwali - the Indian festival of lights just around the corner and I can't wait to celebrate! And of course the biggest reason why this post is super special - this is the first time I made Diwali cards and I am dying to share those with you all :)
Diwali is the one of the most popular festivals in India. Diwali is celebrated every year in many special ways. During the Diwali week people visit friends and relatives, exchange sweets and gifts, burst fire crackers, decorate the house with lanterns and rows of diyas (small oil lamps) and rangoli (usually sand art with a variety of sand colors). In the spirit of this festival of lights I used many glittering layers and embellishments on my cards. Also I kept each card very simple and took advantage of this opportunity to use a variety of patterned paper that I brought from India.
Orange patterned paper from India
Cream decorative paper from an invitation
Golden net paper from India
Flame shaped glitterring flat bead
Dark patterned paper from India
Cream classic patterned paper
Orange handmade paper from India
Cream patterned paper from India
