Eid ul Fitr 2020:1441 - Eid Cards

I haven’t made Eid cards for some time, partly because I haven’t had the time to get all my material out and mull over them, then pack them away again, partly because it has started to feel a little irrelevant.  But with lockdown and facing an Eid where I can’t see my friends and family, it felt kind of nice to create something to send them a message in.

This first card was made from DCWV (Die Cuts With a View) glitter card stock that I have had for some time:

This blue card is made from an image from a charity leaflet I cropped and saved:

This pale blue card is from an old calendar:

This card follows the theme of my Eid décor (I used the leftover materials). The paper is from the B&M Summer Dreams 12x12 paper pad and the embellishment from The Works (a brand called M&C Boutique.

I have no idea where this paper came from, but thought the theme was consistent with Eid:

These three cards were made using a stack of pretty pearlised paper I picked up in a boot sale last year

This is one of my favourites from a paper pack I really like, the American Crafts Amy Tangerine Sketchbook 12x12 book of papers.

I’d love to make some more and I will try if I get some down time. We are in the last day or maybe two days of Ramadan and I want to maximise the time I spend in worship, dua and reflection insh’Allah, so we will see. But it’s certainly whetted my appetite to make more afterwards insh’Allah.
