A Rakhi card

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card to show you which I made with very fancy designer paper that Terry sent me some years ago. Rakhi as I may have mentioned in an earlier blog post is a Indian festival that is celebrated by sisters in honour of their brother/s. The sister puts on a band on the wrist of the brother (similar to a friendship band) and prays for good health and wealth of her brother. The brother in return hands over a cash gift to his sister and promises to take care of his sister.

My card was a quickie except that the die cut letters took me a while to stick as I thought of giving a shadow effect with gold layering. I think I need to invest in a very fine tipped glue to help me stick tiny bits together. I have used gold tape across the paper and a die cut flourish to enhance the card. MS border punch helped too and I think I may have used the punch upside down. Still looks nice, though.

I will participate in the following challenges:

Happy crafting,

What a striking card Monica - I love the gold "shadowing" behind the letters.
