Silvery Salam Aidilfitri

Silvery Salam Aidilfitri
Made this Hari Raya Aidilfitri card for my neighbor on the right. I am using ketupat in this card as it is a great image for Hari Raya Aidilfitri! Furthermore, it is really easy to make using Chari Moss' patchwork paper technique! ;)

Sketchbook Saturday - Challenge #101
I adopt the simple sketch from Sketchbook Saturday - Challenge #101 as shown above. This is my first time playing with them. Hope they treat me nice! :P

It is a simple sketch whereby I just trim a shimmering silver card stock and attach it onto the left side of a dark green card base. Then, a zig zag pattern paper is trimmed accordingly and it is attached to the right side of the card base. The corner is rounded.


Close-up : Sentiment
The sentiment, Salam Aidilfitri (meaning Eid Greetings) is customized using alphabets. It is stamped onto the pattern paper panel at the right bottom corner.


Close-up : The overlapping ketupat
The yellow-orange ketupat is then attached on the middle of the two (2) panels as in the sketch. The green ketupat is layered on top of the yellow-orange ketupat using pop dots so that it would have some dimension.


Close-up : Yellow gems on the left top corner
The card is finished off with some green gems added at the bottom of the sentiment as well as the left top corner of the shimmering silver panel.

Silvery Salam Aidilfitri - Inside
As the card base is a bit dark to write message, a light green with punched border on the left and right inlay is used.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : Yes with punched border
