Stitching Salam Aidilfitri

Stitching Salam Aidilfitri
Made another Hari Raya Aidilfitri card for my neighbor on the left.

Clean and Simple Stamping - FTL251
I adopt the simple sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping - FTL251 as shown above. This is my first time playing with them as well. Although there is no winner for this challenge, I like this time sketch so much that I cannot resists not to play with it!


Close-up : Top portion with punched border
For the top portion of the card, a yellow card stock is trimmed and punched with a border design. A light green card stock is trimmed and the two (2) corners at the bottom are rounded. Some cross faux stitching are added to the border of the panel using green pen. It is later attached onto a dark green card base. 


Close-up : Sentiment
The sentiment, Salam Aidilfitri (meaning Eid Greetings) is customized using alphabets. It is stamped onto an ivory card stock and trimmed accordingly. The two (2) corners at the bottom are rounded as well. Some line faux stitching are added to the border of the panel using green pen. It is attached onto the light green panel earlier follow by the yellow punched panel as in sketch.


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

The card is finished off with some green gems added at the left and right top corner of the yellow panel.


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

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