Happy Rakhi

Good Evening Everyone!

Happy Raksha Bandhan to you all. Rakhi is a festival of India which celebrates the auspicious bond between brothers and sisters.

So today I am gonna share a SHAKER CARD which I have made for my elder brother.

Here is a sneek peak..

Shaker Card

I have tried to keep the card simple. I took a white A4 sheet and folded it. Then I took two small white rectangular pieces of paper and colored them blue giving an ombre effect. On the pieces the message " Because I have a BROTHER, I will always have a FRIEND" was hand written. After pasting them on white sheet I attached the shaker element( sequins and black pearls) over them (Doesnt it look like evening sky with stars). I have also tried some embossing on the sides. Finally decorated the card with black strips and blue punched flowers.


Here is the final card..

Happily ever crafter giveaway
I have recently joined the crafting world. 1 month back hadn't even heard the terms like embossing,die cutting,mixed media etc etc.So you can guess that my list of things I wanna try is very long. In this card I have tried little bit of embossing. I didn't have proper tools. So I used quilling strips and fevi stick cap.😆

    And you need not have all the fancy craft tools to make something so lovely, an example is your card and it's really praiseworthy. I'm sure your brother would cherish this.
