Happy Diwali!

Hi! Today is Diwali, the festival of lights. I wish all of you a very happy Diwali and a fantastic year ahead!

I want to share a special card on this occasion.

This card is part of the set I made for my DT post on Mudra Craft Stamps

I inked a paper with distress oxide inks in red, orange and pink. I stencilled over it with dark brown distress ink through the Deco Pattern stencil by Mudra. I trimmed the panel to fit a standard A2 card and die cut a rectangle from the centre. I used the frame to make another card. The gorgeous sentiment die is the Cut3 Diwali die by Mudra Craft Stamps. I inked a scrap of paper with the same distress oxide inks I used for the main panel. I added some gold splatters for a more festive look. The base layer was cut from gold foil paper. I die cut the sentiment twice, once from black and again from the inked and splattered paper. I stacked them together and then adhered the sentiment to the inked and stencilled panel. The small sentiment is from the Diwali Decorations stamp set by Mudra. This stamp set coordinates perfectly with the Diwali die. So there are lots of options for your Diwali cards.

Here is a close up of the sentiment.

Love the way this card turned out!

This was the card I shared on the Mudra blog where I used up the frame left over after die-cutting. So I got two beautiful cards at one time.

I hope you liked my card. Entering it in the following challenges.

I used three colours that compliment each other - red, orange and pink.
