A Dahlia Canvas

June 28, 2017

Welcome friends to another post where I have used the beautiful Dahlias from Susan’s Garden, this time on a canvas. Creating the canvas reminded me of my childhood where I used to see my mother nurture these beauties while helping her in the garden. Working with flowers makes you fall in love with the nature all the more, and such has been my experience. Though I chose a canvas, you could adapt the idea for very special cards, shadow boxes, and other projects. Look at the close-ups and instructions then it’s your turn to replicate it!

Miss You – Garden Notes Dahlia Card

June 27, 2017

“My heart never knew loneliness… until you went away…”

Dear Friends,

In this age of faster communications, the Internet, messaging apps and social media platforms, it is easy to be connected to the people we love. But the fact remains that showing emotions has always been difficult, even with all of these new modes of communication.

Today I bring to you a lovely hand-crafted card that is a unique way to send a heartfelt message.

I have used the dahlia flower as the central theme. The dahlia is a symbol of inner strength, creativity and standing strong in your sacred values. Dahlia flowers also symbolize a commitment and bond that lasts forever, just like the bond of friendship with the one for whom you are creating this special project.

“HELLO” – SUNSHINE TULIP CARD

May 30, 2017

“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different…

It doesn’t have to. Its different…”

These lines from America’s celebrated spiritual teacher and author Marianne Williamson describes the spirit of the Tulip flower. Tulips have been known since centuries as the symbol of perfect endearing love between partners or family members.

Today I dedicate this card to the bonhomie I share with a childhood friend of mine whom I have connected with after almost 30 years. I have used Yellow tulips in this card as they mean “there’s a sunshine in your smile”. Yellow tulip is a great medium to express affection and care for your friends and loved ones. I dedicate this card not only to my friend but also all my fellow designers as a mark of warmth and camaraderie I share with each one of you.

This “Hello ” card is a layered card.
