Rakshabandhan card with Rakhi
For sisters who send the rakhis to their brothers, here’s a beautiful way to incorporate rakhi on your cards. I used Happy Rakshabandhan stamp set for the sweet brother sister duo nd colored with copics. I stenciled on one side for creating a base for my Rakhi.
Shagun envelope / Money Envelope
Here is an idea for gifting money in a beautiful envelope, that would work for any occassion! Using Om as my focal point and stenciling on envelope, I created a quick and festive envelope that can be made in multiples too!
