All the guests loved to receive a very unique personalised gift bag at the end of the party. Many happy parents called us to thank for such creative projects which their kids can manage to do on their own without creating much mess.

Parchment Fairies - Sesonal Greeting Cards


Dear crafters,

I sharing my 3D Parchment Flower Fairy cards. I used matching floral printed vellum paper for background in each cutouts. I embossed few important elements of the floral vellum paper to add further effect to the cards. 


The flower fairies are printed on one sheet of A4 parchment which are embossed and cut out. I use perga glue to stick the fairies on cards, so the embossing is not suppressed or damaged. 



  Thanks so much for visiting The Craft Gallery. I would be honored if you would take a moment to like our new Facebook Page "The Craft Gallery"  


Recycled Gifts - Greeting Cards









I used pencil sharpenings to make these greeting cards. I used colour pencils sharpening and painted them with sketchpens to add further effect. 

I have used calligraphy for writing messages and tried to create an insiprational series. 

What do you think about this new recycle idea??

Parchment Greeting Cards


Sharing some of my parchment cards. I used some floral designs on spare parchment scraps. I painted the flowers with parchment ink and embossed all the design.
 Then I perforated the outline and cutout the design. Made small cards with some plain card stock and attached the floral design with double sided duct tape. 


 
 Following two cards are made from Martha Ospina's design book. I applied some lace to give a personal touch to the candles card. 




This is perfect baby announcement card. I painted the card and did small embroidery through the four punch holes to add a personal touch. 
See the closeup pictures for further details.

Thread Painting - Greeting Cards


Today I am sharing one of my old unique cards which me and my father made in school summer holidays. I liked them so much that I have never shared it with anyone. 

Materials: 
Card sheet, threads (various sizes), water paints and some sketch pens 
Process:
  1. Take two same size card sheet.
  2. Take any length embroidery threads and dip threads in various inks or paints
  3. Spread the threads on one card in asymmetrical style. Press the second card on it .
  4. Pull the threads while pressing the two cards together. 
  5. This creates the symmetrical lines on both the cards.
  6. Add few details with sketch pens / sharpie to create various forms or shapes from these lines. 
I did the fun part of making imprints from the coloured threads whereas my dad did the creative part of making some shapes out of those lines. 



First one reads: Loneliness; Second one reads: Waves



Did you liked this idea? Would like to know if I can use this technique in any other form...do share your thoughts...

Pressed Flowers - Greeting Cards - Part 3



Hello Lovely People, 
Third and final post of the series. Presenting some more pressed flower greeting cards. 
Even a small twig of the weed can be made splendid looking by this art. This art makes you appreciate all the samll wonders of nature. Moths can look hideous and have very waxy thick wings from outside, but the flipsides are very beautiful and can be restyled in this art. 
I would highly recommend teaching this art to 4-5 year old kids, best fun and learn activity. 

HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE  SERIES.

Happy Crafting!
