(Calicut, Kerala, India)
I made this card for a very close friend of mine! :)
Difficulty Level: Intermediate
For making this card I used...
-a handmade paper
-a red scrap paper
-2 embroidery threads (red and pink)
-a few white pretty stones
-2 glitter pens (red and silver)
-a double sided 3-D tape
The card is pretty simple to make.. handmade paper is used as the base..
the texture of that paper gives a sophisticated look :)
better than using a plain paper,..
while cutting flowers i made sure that all the flowers were of exactly the same size.. kind of gives a neater look..
the flowers look as if emerging from the card because of the 3-D tape beneath.. i secured it with a strong glue..
you can also use ribbons instead of the embroidery threads, i thought it would be too heavy for the card..
write a small message like "happy birthday" or "thinking of you" on the small rectangle on the top. make sure that you have a good handwriting or else ask your friend to write it for you..!
yeah u can see that i have a very bad handwriting .. :)
for Decoration add glitter to flowers n hearts..
i used red n silver glitter pens not to mention the pretty white stones :)
and there it is! a lovely card! :)
i hope it impresses the recipient! :)
