Today, I am sharing three ethnic cards with you which can be typically be gifted for Indian festive occasions.
All three of my cards are A2 sized, i.e they measure 4.5 inches *5.5 inches.
For my first card , I decided to use the stamp set Indian wedding . I simply stamped this image with memento black ink and them embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it a bit of shine . I then coloured this image with copics and fussy cut the image. I planned to mount this image on a dark background mimicking the night sky .
So I chose a navy blue card stock and embossed some fireworks images on this card stock with gold embossing powder. I also distress the navy blue yardstick with some black soot distress oxide ink to give it a darker look. I finally stayed and embossed the sentiment on the card , embellished the card with some sequins after mounting the bride and groom image with some double sided foam tape.
For the second card , I used the stamp set Ganpati Bappa . For this card I simple stamped the image and colored the image with copics. I then used a masking paper stamped the same image on it fussy cut the image and pasted the masking paper on top of the image to cover the image completely .
I then used a stencil on top of the masked image and did some ink blending . Once I was happy with the ink blending I peeled of the masking paper to reveal a lovely image of Ganpat against a stencilled background. I finally adhered some sequins to give finished look to the card .
For my third and final card , I simply used a stencil and some inks . the stencil I used for this card is called 4 leaf lace . I used some inks and did some basic ink blending. The card is simple and one layered . I also added a few sequins/jewels before stamping the sentiment “you are amazing” on the card.
I hope you like these cards and I hope I inspired you to try out these techniques as well.
