Triple Easel Card

It is that time of the year when I make a special card for the most amazing couple in my life! Yes, it was my mom & dad's anniversary on 13th Oct. I sent the card to them and they absolutely loved it. They are the ones who have always appreciated my talent and given me the courage to tread my way.

Since the card had to be extra special, I wanted to try something different. So, here is my first try at the Triple Easel Card. I printed the wordings for 'Mom' & 'Dad' and hand-cut them. All the flowers are punched. The white pearls are from a local shop. The wordings on the lower panels are also printed on card paper. I added silver glitter balls (from Pie Lane) to decorate and emphasize 'Happy Anniversary'. The heart-shaped blue-colored stones act as stoppers.

Diwali card

Heya!! This is my 3rd post for the day. Since I am on vacation, I thought I'll quickly share my Diwali cards.
Now about the card. I had been waiting to use these colorful tear drop embellishments since the time I bought them from Pie Lane. The colors are all very bright and cheerful. The stickers on 4 corners are also from Pie Lane.

Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali!!

Hope you like them! Do drop in a line to lemme know :)
I have used those cute embellies from Pie Lane.

Stencil flower card

Hi. This is my first card made using Pie Lane stencils that I bought during my visit to Pune. Those cute li'l blue beads used as embellies are also from Pie Lane.

The blue scalloped border and blue bg for flower is from an old calendar paper. I liked the shaded effect of that paper.
