Awning card, Different Card Folds, Thank you card, Window display card

Handmade Greeting Cards in Dubai ~ 11

Have you ever walked past, a cupcake/pastry store ? Well here, I have ‘tried’ to recreate the look of a store display with some cupcakes and an awning.  Trust you will like it.

This Thank you card, has several things going for it, including, bling, border punch, dry embossing, copic markers, nesstablilities diecut, a tag and the awning. The sentiment is digital stamp while the cupcakes are rubber stamped. There are two design papers, the pearl white one is embossed but its shine does not radiate in the photos 😦   The awning card does take a bit longer to work around becoz without the appropriate measurements, the awning itself, can ruin the card. But if it fits well, its a fab.

I am sharing this card with the following challenges :-

Awning card, Different Card Folds, Paper Piecing, Shaped Cards, Window display card

Handmade Greeting Cards in Dubai ~ 10

Hello friends ! I am continuing the 14 days 14 cards series. This being my 10th card.

valentines cards in Dubai

This is an awning card for a boutique/window display.

Elements/techniques in this card include :- Dry embossing, rubber stamping: flowers, border punches, design paper, pink brads, die cut oval, sentiment: digital stamp. Each one of those vases are paper pieced individually and distressed, copic markers on flowers. The awning itself, was a lot of effort. Had to cut stripes of pink and add to the white portion to give it an awning-like appearance. Plenty of layers involved here. Perhaps, becoz I tried this technique for the first time, I took a long time to design and dress it up.   I just love how it turned out !

Friendship cards

Handmade Greeting cards in Dubai 9

valentines cards in Dubai

Some of the best friends, I have made over the years,  are from my college days.  What’s truly amazing,  is how our friendship withstood all the time lapses,  life threw at us.   Marriages, children, deaths of parents, accidents, illnesses, bankruptcies and even some, sainthood, thrown in, for added measure !!

We have been a very closely knit group of friends who have harbored our friendship, outside the realm of religious beliefs, language, upbringing and distances.  I am deeply honored to have had my favorite group of friends in SABNIK.

While I live in Dubai, the rest reside in India but not a year goes by when I am not remembered on my birthday and when I am not a part of the developments in their lives.  We may not Skype or whatsapp every other day, but there is a deep sense of satisfaction, knowing that we have eachother for guidance, support and occasionally, a kick up one’s backside 🙂 (when needed !!)

In an age, where, speed and technology has taken over our lives, I still find solace and a sense of belonging with these friends, who have stood by me, through hail and storms.

I’d like to dedicate card # 9 in the series of 14 cards – 14 days to Sabnik. My BFF’s when the term was not even coined !

Highlights include :- Pattern paper, diecuts, acrylic stamps (quote + Chinese lanterns), twine. Naturally none of my cards are dressed up without some distressing 🙂

Handmade greeting cards in Dubai 8

Hello friends ! I’m back with my 8th card today.

valentines cards in Dubai

I must confess, for someone who is accustomed to posting and linking one project a week, 14 projects in 14 days is really a Challenge for me !! Designing a card is such a fun and elevating experience for me, however the post production process is rather time consuming ! ( photography, editing, posting, linking )

In Dubai, we are blessed with a daily dose of fresh and radiant sunshine even in the make-belief winters !  The sun never seems to disappear in the day time and hence, virtually no flash assistance is required in any photography for outdoor shootings.

HEART

About today’s card :-

This is a bright and sunny card, in one of my favorite colors with some of my favorite elements ~ Mason jars !!

I love playing with mason jars in cards, don’t you ?

Highlights of this card include :- Polka dots, digital stamp (mason jar + sentiment ), 3 mason jar, 3 fabric hearts, distressing. (None of my cards are complete without being distressed)
