Card Patterns Sketch 16

A couple of weeks back I was in for a pleasant surprise, I got a mail from a lady (Sonal) mentioning that she had seen a few of my cards and liked them a lot. She wanted me to teach some techniques to her, her teen aged daughter and one of her friends, I was a bit apprehensive but agreed nonetheless. And I am so glad that I did! I put together a few card making supplies into a small kit and gave to each student.It was a great experience, the kids were amazingly talented, I learnt a thing or too from them too. Sonal herself is an accomplished artist, she does beautiful glass and warli paintings, warli is a tribal Indian form of painting. Here are a few of her creations;you can view more of her work here. Overall the cardmaking workshop was a rewarding experience for all of us and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I also went shopping last week, I had gone to a toy store to get some toys for my nephew and guess what I found there chipboard alphabets!!!! I had never seen them in Bangalore before, so obviously I’m soooooooo excited!!!I also bought some 3-D flower stickers.Now finally to this week’s Card Patterns sketch. Here is my take on it.A good friend of mine, Krishnan, is a very tough critic of my cards. According to him I almost always make floral cards and that I should try out different types of cards, though I never accept it I know its kinda true . So this time I made a non-floral card.......Do check out the Card Patterns blog for some great takes on this week’s sketch by the DT.


  1. Your card is beautiful! Flowers are easy to use so it is cool you tried something new!

    Looks like they had great fun with your teaching! Some girls at work want me to do something like that for them! I guess I will have to try it!

  2. PS ~ I've got 2 cards made for the 2 Sketches sketch this week ~ hopefully will post tonight!

  3. Love your card!! And way to go for the card making class!! Awesome!! Are the chipboard letters good? I saw them a few months back at a neighborhood stationery store, but didn't buy it because he didn't have even the entire alphabet in the pack. I will go and check out again sometime later.

  4. Juhi what a cute card! Love the colors and that big bow. Sounds like you had a lot of fun teaching cardmaking- hope you get to do it again soon!

  5. They are nice and sweet give Archies a run for their money.Good luck.

  6. This is on Archana's behalf:
    I love the card. The green and red look great together. Love that ribbon too.

    Congratulations on your cardmaking working. Im sure you had fun there. I saw Mrs. Sonal's artifacts on that link. She is immensely talented.

    How is the response from the store for your cards? Im sure its going great. Your cards are really pretty.

    Take care.
