Hello and welcome to my November winners post!!

Please give a warm welcome to my November THANK YOU challenge winner

Be inspired to play along my December CHRISTMAS challenge!

I'm Raga from Perky Hobby and I'm super thrilled to be guest designing at Paru's Card Making Challenges. Thank you Paru for having me.

I'm from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, currently staying in Gurgaon, Haryana with my husband and two adorable kids (daughter of 7 years old and son of 3 years old). Im a stay at home mom and have started taking art and craft classes for kids now.
I love to illustrate and mostly all of my cards hold my illustrations. Im a bit wonky towards CAS style of cardmaking and I love to make interactive cards too. I'm new to the stamping world and I'm still learning new techniques and tricks!! You can see my works here...


For this month's challenge theme of Christmas, I have made a card using Christmas wreath. The front panel of the card was head embossed with white embossing powder using brick stencil from Itsy Bitsy craft store. For making the wreath, I took an old bangle of my daughter and wrapped it with a green pipe cleaner and added some rhinestones for berries.

Finished the wreath with bells and a a bow, Then I mounted my wreath on an embossed card stock and added a strip of vellum holding the sentiment Merry Christmas from Create a Smile cool buddies stamp set. I distressed the edges using gold splash ink. Finished my card by adhering it to the vertically folded base card stock.

For the shaker tag, I took a Kraft card stock and fussy cut it. To create the snow falling effect, I splattered Fevicol and water mix, heat embossed with white embossing powder. I don't hold any chunky glitters to add in, so I stuffed art stones by crushing them a little. 
the snowscape was using had torn white paper. I sealed it with an acetate piece and a kraft frame using double sided foam tape. I used Christmas tree stamp from the same cool buddies stamp set, coloured using watercolours and added glossy accent for the baubles. Finished my tag, with the same sentiment and tied it together using red satin ribbon.

Hope you are all inspired to play along the challenge. Thank you for stopping by.
Happy Crafting.
