This might seem an awkward time to post a Diwali Card, either way too late for last year or way too early for this year. Any which way, this is a card I made while being approached for a corporate card deal. The design brief was that it had to be elegant, not over the top girly and around 50 cards to be made. Alas, I didn't get the project, but there's always next time. I personally like this card the best out of the five designs I created (I shall post those at the end and you can judge! :p)
|Showing the card in all it's glory. The design is a stylized version of fairy lights and fire crackers.|
I started off by rounding the edges of the card. I made rosettes out of red cardstock in two different sizes and stuck them on. I then drew a 'wire' for the fairy lights with a white gel pen and hand glued each individual fairy light. The fairy lights are smooth topped rhinestones.

Now here are the other designs that I had done.
|Embossed card with cut out Diyas all aflame!|
|Ornate window card with a flower pot with glitter sparkles|
|A stylized Mithai (traditional Indian sweets) box|
|A simple card with a Diya again and sparkles of glitter in the corners|
