Hi dearies!
I made this card today for Card Patterns sketch 77.I found the sketch to be quite interesting and so set out to make this really ethnic Indian card.The card in real is much more blingy..(maybe my camera couldn't take all the bling ;-) )
The card is essentially a Rakhi card I made for my brother..actually I happen to be sending him a Rakhi after a really long time...I must admit..I am a bit lazy.I got the idea of attaching the Rakhi in the card itself from Spardha's amazing card here
For those wondering what 'Rakhi' is all about's a little info..A Rakhi is a sacred thread that a sister ties to her brother's wrist on the day of Rakha Bandhan and the brother in return vows to protect and care for his sister in her time of need.The Rakhi could also be tied to person who'm you would like to give the status or love of a brother. Have a happy week!


  1. Lovely card!! The background is absolutely fab!!

  2. Hey that is cute.... I loved the simple yet perfect looking Rakhi gift for your brother..... Since I am travelling, I made it a point to make one for my brother yesterday night.... & I made a matching rakhi too... But had no time to capture them & post... May be I wil do that on a later date.... But as soon as I reach Ranchi I have to courrier it to him.... I am sure he would love the card as well as the matching handmade rakhi... a simple one though.... :) Hugs ))))
