Look at these lovely pink invitations that I have made, for a cute baby girl’s first birthday party, on an order.
The baby’s mother liked a greeting card that I had made a couple of years ago and chose the same template for her daughter’s birthday invite. A few changes were made to the design and it was completely customized as specified by the mom.
I really was impressed by the care, interest and attention to the detail that the mother actually had for these invitations. I have made a 20 invitations, patiently and carefully, and posted them to the mom.
Each of these cards has a coordinating bright pink envelope, as shown in the picture above. I have signed the back of each card myself (shown below)
Following are a couple of masculine birthday greeting cards especially made for conveying hearty 40th birthday wishes to my beloved brother-in-laws. (Yes! Two of my BILs turned 40 the same week).
I have kept the layout really simple. I’ve used circle punches of different sizes to cut out circles from a pattern paper and a coordinating card-stock. I have then die cut numbers 4 and 0. I arranged the circles on a light blue card base and then stuck them to the card using tape runner, glue and foam adhesives to add dimension. I had finished off the card by adding a few rhinestones to add more interest.
Observe the coordinating white envelopes for these cards, which is handmade too. I have punched out a circle from pattern paper, which I have cut into 2 pieces and adhered to the corners of the envelopes to finish them off.
I’m sure everyone has that tall guy, who puts you to shame, in your list of loved ones. This card can be gifted to that tallest friend of yours (now you know why the giraffe). I made this card a while ago, which got to surface now. I can’t remember the source of inspiration for this card.
Hope you liked his card. Let me know what you think about this card.
Hi all. Below is another card that I have missed posting on the blog.
All I had used for making this card is some left over scraps card stock, PTI die cuts for both leaves and colored doilies. I have tied the button with a leftover cord and stuck it on with a sticky dot.
This was a card that I had made for my cousin’s birthday. Let me know what you think about this card.
Hi all. It’s been a long time that I had posted something here. I have an announcement to make – ‘I’m expecting a baby’. Yes !! That kept me tired for the last few months. I was busy planning, preparing check lists and all. So I couldn’t create anything for sometime.However, I got a chance to work on something colourful, creative and challenging for a couple of weeks. We had to plan for a gender neutral baby shower decor and I obviously insisted that the decor be DIY. Today I want to share with you the floral backdrop that I had made for my baby shower.
Below is the whole setting which is about 12 feet wide and 5 feet high.
(Click on the image below to view full size photo)
I knew I wanted a floral back drop which is quite bright in color, since there were several restrictions to not tape anything on the walls at the function hall and only hooks which were already present could be used to hang any decor. Also the main wall had 3 large windows over which inevitably should be part of the backdrop.
It has been a while since I came up with a comic strip. My latest Huion 610 pro and a funny, but thinkable, blog on quality of life by my brother-in-law Raghu, have inspired me to come up with this comic. Refer my BIL’s blog – Antharanagam
Readers, please excuse as this comic is written in my mother tongue Telugu.
Hope you enjoyed this little attempt. Thanks for stopping by.
Recently I was recently reminded of Artist Appreciation Month by Patience Brewster, a designer of handmade Christmas ornaments and gifts and so I was prompted to consider who has been my inspiration. Kristina Werner, or popular as starofmay, is my first inspiration for making greeting cards.
3 years ago, I wanted to make a beautiful handmade card for my husband, which is when I came across Kristina’s channel on youtube. I loved her videos and the way she showed step by step process of making cards, various tools she had used and the perfection with which she finished off a handmade card, have all motivated me. I challenged myself if I can make such cards and implement my ideas with perfection. And that’s how my card making journey had began. I am also inspired by Jennifermcguire, Gayatri Murali, Sanketi, Aga, and the list goes on and on. There were many artists out there; however Kristina Werner has always been on top of my list.
It’s a wonderful world of card making that I was introduced to. I love everything about it. The colours, the variety of papers, wide range of tools, stamps and techniques. It isn’t time-taking when compared to the other form of art that I work on, like sketching, painting and different forms of designing. This is an advantage I have with cardmaking.
Thank you ‘Patience’ for reminding me about the Artist Appreciation month. You are the reason, I have this post up today.
Hi all. I’m thoroughly enjoying my summer. Right now am in India and its very hot here.So today I’m back with another challenge from CAS-ual Fridays. If you have already guessed, this month’s challenge is about summer. You gotta make a project using some tan, white and just one other bright colour. Below is my take on the challenge.
