Here’s the final look of ALL THE THREE CARDS:

card3cp1.jpg

So Lets go through them one by one now…

Card 1: VINTAGE RAKHI CARD

card1.jpg

So, this card has a vintage feel to it because of the craft paper and cream flowers.

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  1. I stamped various sentiments from the “Rakhi wishes” stamp set using brown and red Versacolor inks on a craft sheet to make my own pattern paper.
  2. I then inked the edges using Artistry brown ink. This makes everything look older and prettier.
  3. I then heat embossed the bold and brush lettered sentiment on a red circle.
  4. I inked the edges of flowers from the Craftyscrappers embellishments.
  5. I finally added a bow using glue dots. They are really strong adhesive and hold such elements quite well.

SOME CLOSE-UPS:

card1cp.jpg

As you can see, it’s a fancy fold card. I simply folded the base to create this z-shape.

card1cp2.jpg

Card 2: MODERN RAKHI CARD

card2.jpg

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  1. For this card, I first coloured the brother-sister image from the “Rakhi wishes” stamp using Camlin brush markers. This is such a cute image and so much fun to colour.
  2. I then did the fancy fold as I did in my previous card.
  3. I glued the image such that whole of it was visible upon closing the card.
  4. Then I added a green pattern paper underneath the image to give it some base. Otherwise, my image will look like its floating.
  5. I finally stamped the sentiment on a cream coloured paper using red versa colour ink, and matted this circle onto a red paper.
  6. I cut the red paper with scissors to create the postage look.

SOME CLOSE-UPS:

Untitled-1.png

 

step1.png

I used Craftyscrappers premium white cardstock and  3D 2-IN-1DESIGN- hexagon stencil ( It contains 2 pieces of stencils) for the background of my card.

 

IMG_20180803_174613.jpg

 

 

 

step2.png

 

I placed the First stencil over the cardstock and blended with yellow ink.
IMG_20180803_174628.jpg
step3.png
After that i placed the second stencil over the previously yellow stenciled background and blended with orange ink.
IMG_20180803_174742.jpg
This is how it looks once the orange ink is applied over the previously stenciled background.
IMG_20180803_174932.jpg
step4
I wanted to create a 3d look so I again placed the second stencil and applied some yellow ink and got a really  beautiful 3D background.
IMG_20180803_175059.jpg
Check this out, such a pretty 3d design….
IMG_20180805_145609.jpg
step5
Next i kept the background for my card aside, and started working
on the front of the card.
I stamped the sentiment ‘because i have a sister i’ll always have a friend‘ sentiment from the stampset  No#1 bro and sis on a panel of white cardstock and used flower and leaf die cuts and adhered all the elements on stencilled background.
card1.jpg
step6
I was carried away with the beautiful 3D 2-IN-1 HEXAGON PATTERNS stencil that i created another card in the shades of blue.
For the second card i used shades of blue inks and went with the same procedure
( light color first then dark and again light)
Here is how my second card looks:

Here is closer look at both of my cards:

PRETTY BACKGROUND RAKHI CARD-DT ANJALI SHARMA

Hi crafty folks,

This is Anjali Creative designer @craftyscrappers and today I am here
with a start to dinish video tutorial on how you can create your own
pretty background rakhi card.

Since Rakshabandhan is just around the corner and we all know how the whole ceremony of tying Rakhis can be monotonous. Not to forget the ritual of gorging on sweets (Ok! this is probably the best part). But we’re sure that the extreme love-hate relationship you share with your siblings deserves something extra.
So i decided to do a rakhi card to celebrate the bond of love between the brother’s and sisters.

Take a white coloured envelope.

 

IMG_20180805_104952__01.jpg

 

 

step2.png

Tape it down onto your craftsheet with the help of the masking tape (This is done to ensure that the envelope stays in it’s place and doesn’t ruin the positioning of the stencil.

step5

I wanted to have overlapping shades so I have overlapped the stencil.Use Spiced Mermalade Distress ink through it.Now comes the fun part…just flip the diaognal diamond pattern stencil, overlap it on to the Red inkes patyern and put Fossiled Amber distress ink through it.

 

IMG_20180806_164714.jpg

Similarly, flip the horizontal diamond pattern stencil design and put Evergreen Bough distress ink through it.

Take the sentiments from the “Super siblings” stamp set, stamp it with Black archival ink on White cardstock from Craftyscrappers, fussy cut it and spray it with the “Sweet Sunshine” Shimmer spray…this spray just pops the sentiment and gives life to it..I absolutely loveeee it!
