Hari Raya Card: Cardabilities August 15th Sketch #37

I have a couple of Raya cards to make and I really have no idea where to start as I've never done any Raya cards before. (Raya is a Malaysian term for the Eid celebration i.e an important Muslim festival which marks the end of Ramadhan). I wanted my cards to have a really authentic local 'Raya' flavor... anyway, this is what I came up with, trying to stay 'green' as that's the more conventional and traditional 'theme'. I hope my recepient liked it :)

Patterned paper is BG Curio. I used crochet lace (Daiso) within the 'window frame'. Flourishes are Basic Elements; cut into half and painted in MM Acrylic paint in Manila. Flowers are Prima. The sentiment is handwritten on BG journalling tag. Butterflies are MS Royal B'fly Punch.


The inspiration came from Cardabilities' August 15th's Sketch #37.




Thanks for looking, have a lovely day! :)
