Hi, I’m Kunali and today I’m showing you how to make a beautiful, quick and unique Diwali Card. This style can also be used to make greeting cards for various other occasions. Dangle only florals to say Happy Birthday, or Snowflakes and ornaments saying Merry Christmas. Hearts and red roses would work wonderfully for Valentine’s or just simple quilled accents for thanking someone or offering seasons greetings! Do give this a try and make someone’s day!
Make the accents as shown below. Use multiple colours for the marigold and Diya bottom. It’ll make the card even more colourful.
Once, that’s done, cut out a card from a red cardstock. This one I’ve cut measures 15 cm x 10 cm.
Using 5 mm yellow strips, I’ve stuck it and made it a little more stiff. Thereafter, I’ve made alphabets from it spelling out HAPPY DIWALI.
Allow them to dry. In the meanwhile, mark the Diya and Flower outline on the back of the card. Cut around it leaving a little more space so the Diya and Flower can dangle in between.
Once that’s done, attach crochet strings to the back of the flower and Diya. Stick them as shown above.
They should dangle beautifully and we should be able to see only a bit of the thread from front.
Now, stick the HAPPY DIWALI as shown on the card and leave it to dry.
Et voila, your beautiful and unique greeting card is ready. Do give this a try and share pictures 🙂
