With India in my heart

This card was sent to wintam, along with the India Blog Candy she won! Congrats!
I free-handedly drew the pop-up figure, and cut it with a sharp craft knife. I added some punched decorations to the background, and used a copper embossing powder for a little shine. It’s quite basic but never the less colorful, rich and exciting – just like India!


Inspire me NOW!

At her site you can admire her beautiful illustrations, typography and more:
