Raya card 2013 #1


Ok, I would have to say that I'm a bit into making Swing cards lately ever since I made my first one last month. It's now becoming something I enjoy making in fact the only thing I love making nowadays hahahaha. Pity to all the other card layouts because all I care about now is making Swing cards. Not sure though how long this obsession is going to last though because I do get bored easily.....so we shall see.....ehehe!

If you are a regular here, you would know by now how much I love using Ketupat as part of my Raya card decorations. It's something that I always use for my Raya cards.....a must. It's difficult for me to let go of it. Although I am trying to use other subject matter......but somehow the Ketupat is something I always prefer from the very beginning.

I used the biggest sized ribbons I have in my collection to make the Ketupat for front design of the card. And I made tiny ones as decorations at the sides of it. After finishing the design, I realised how many Ketupat I used for this card.....quite many of them....perhaps too many. I don't know.....I'm just being very critical of my own design. You be the judge of it. I just create what I feel like creating at that moment in time. Sometimes, I don't even think......I just do what I feel is right.

Oh...forgot to mention about how much I love sewing on paper now.....I used to sew beads and sequins on paper so many years back and used them as decorations on paper. And now the interest is back and I just enjoy sewing paper so much. Kinda therapeutic. It just makes me so happy.....weird but true.

This is the first time for me to use the  die-cut alphabets on my handmade cards. Gosh....can't tell you how much I love arranging the alphabets on the card. It's fun! :)

The quilled oil lamps are actually some quilled shapes I made for my raya cards way back in 2010. I used to love making them so much. At that time I was still a newbie in quilling. :)

You can view how the card swing in motion in the video below.....do check it out ;)
