Hello Crafty people !!
My name is Archisha Mukherjee from Kenchi School and I welcome you to the tutorial of making 4 classy Diwali cards using dies.Today we will be creating four Diwali Cards by using only dies (Yes ! no inking or stamping).
But before proceeding any further, let us talk about the November monthly challenge. This month, the challenge is going on as “Glitters / Ethnic” projects. You can take a look below for the details of our monthly challenge.
Now, getting back to todays cards. I will be using the four new dies introduced in the recent release by Craftangles.
See Through Shaker Diwali Card –
For my first card, I used the Craftangles Layered Diya Set. Since this die set comes with a base die and layers on top of it, I was intrigued to create a ‘See Through’ Shaker Card.
I stuck with just white and gold to keep it pristine looking. For my sentiment, I chose the hindi script die that reads ‘Shubh Deepawli’ from the Craftangles Happy Diwali die set.
Lastly, some gold sequins to finish it off. The process to create the see through aspect of the card can be a bit challenging. Don’t forget to check out the video tutorial at the end of this post for a step by step explanation. The shaker elements used were some bronze glitter and Craftangles White Matte Hearts Shaker Elements.
Belly Band Diwali Card –
The second card is also of the very same colour palette – colds and whites. The focal point of this card is the gold mirror background where I have done some repetitive die-cutting using the OM die from Craftangles Happy Diwali die set on a cold mirror cardstock.
I wrapped a belly band using some vellum and overlaid my sentiment ‘Happy Diwali’ from the Craftangles Happy Diwali die set again.
Now the trick for a elevating a white sentiment on a light coloured background is to do some layered die-cutting. I die-cut my sentiment multiple times and then places them one above the other. This makes the sentiment standout and almost look like a chipboard piece.
Pastel Diwali Lantern Card –
As the heading says, this one is all about pastel shades. I die-cut some lanterns using the Craftangles Lanterns die set from 3 shades of pastel glitter paper and white glitter cardstock. The string for the lanterns was die-cut from silver glitter cardstock. Yes this one had a lot of glitter 😀
I put majority of my energy to come up with the best placement for my die-cuts. Once I decide on the placement, I take a quick photograph with my phone and then refer it while adhering the die-cuts on the card panel.
I added my layered sentiment, die-cut from black cardstock using the Shubh Deepawli die (Craftangles Happy Diwali die set). Lastly, some baby pink sequins to finish off this one.
Fireworks Diwali Card :
The last card for today is probably the most simple and yet my most favourite project for today. This one was made using the Craftangles Fireworks die set. I chose a minty green glitter cardstock card panel to die-cut the negatives of the fireworks die. This panel was stuck on the card base with some foam adhesives.
The sentiment was die-cut from some silver mirror cardstock several times and then layered to form a fat chunky chipboard like piece.
Finally, some random silver sequins were added around the card to finish it off.
