Hari Raya Cards for friends!

These are cards that I made for girlfriends who will be celebrating the Malay new year. I love this dress form stamp from Lawn Fawn's Sew Lovely set and loved paper piecing it. I decided to make both the cards in the same design except for the colour scheme and the sentiment. The sentiment was made up using Lawn Fawn's Harold's ABCs.

For the first card, I used PTI cardstock in Raspberry Fizz as the card base and for layering. The pattern papers are from DCWV's Street Lace collection and I loved how it came out!! The colours just go so well together.

For the second card, I used cardstock from We R Memory Keepers. The pattern papers are from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist collection called Life of the Party.

This next card was made using cardstock from PTI as well. I stamped the border on the front with one of the stamps from PTI's Retro Background Basics set. The inner medallion image is from PTI's Iconic Images stamp set. I used twine from The Twinery because I though the borders looked unfinished and a little bare.

I die cut the main focal image with Spellbinder's Beaded Ovals and stamped the flower from PTI's Tag Its #5. I then inked the edges with TH's Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters.

For the inside of the card, I wrote out my card message and then used one of the flourishes from PTI's Fancy Flourish stamp set and clear embossed it. I like how it turned out and I got this inspiration from one of the girls over at PTI. I love it because I'm a pretty straight gal and would not have thought it makes sense to stamp after you write your message. But I think it looks great and probably something I will do more of in the future!

Hope they'll like it!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
