Napkin Fold Card with Floral bunch

Hello! Who doesn't like making special fold cards!! They do require more effort and time, but I guess the hard work is worth it becasue they look more appealing than a normal one layer card. 

Here is a huge napkin fold card that I made out of a 12x12" card stock. I decided to use  a bright patter paper to have a nice contrast with the kraft card stock.
For the band, I hand cut a frame to place the floral bunch on. The floral bunch is created using an assortment of daisy flowers, roses and leaves from my stash. For added interest, I punched out butterflies in colors picked from the PP and spread them across the card.

Mega Celebration 2014 Event 2 - Challenge

Hello everyone!

Thanks so much for participating in my Mega Celebration event 2 - Challenge wherein you were required to get inspired by Indian motifs/designs and make a card with that. In addition to that, I added a twist of sending your card to the next person in the link up. I am really glad that lot of people appreciated the idea, but may be because of holiday season, the participation was not huge. Nevertheless, I am happy that those of you who joined in, have played with full enthusiasm and have sent across your cards as a sweet New Year wish to fellow crafters. Seeing your lovely entries, I wished I received these beautiful cards too :)

As you all know, Juhi Khanna from Juhi’s Handmade cards was one of the judges of this contest and she had also shared her inspiration card for this challenge. I had mentioned in the post about a secret judge who along with Juhi and me, will help pick up the winner of this challenge. So let me share the name of our secret judge.... its none other than our very own Karuna Chauhan, the owner of Lulupu - The Craft Lounge. Karuna is also sponsoring this event and offering the awesome Little Lindies Set worth Rs.1199/- from her store to the winner.

All the entries were so pretty and made with so many efforts that we had a tough time selecting a winner. After much brainstorming, all three of us came to the conclusion and chose one unanimous winner.

And the winner is....


Her card was so beautiful with a pretty shape. And she used a new idea of making a paste of ceramic powder,white glue and white acrylic paint.

Congratulations Pooja!! Please write to me at indira.bhullar@gmail.com to claim your prize.
