Diwali Cards set 2


Hello friends 

Today I am sharing one more set of Diwali cards I have made . I do not own Diwali specific stamps or dies but every year I make sure I put together diwali cards with an Indian twist to it .

On the occasion of Diwali, Goddess Lakshmi sitting on a lotus flower is worshiped on this day. In Hinduism , lotus is considered a sacred flower symbolizing purity, auspiciousness and spiritual perfection.

Its unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the soul to embrace one and all. It is also regarded as a symbol of divine birth and unattached spiritual development to attain nirvana. Because the lotus rises from dirty and muddy water to blossom as a pure flower, therefore, it is a symbol of resurrection. This aspect of lotus reminds one to remain pure and detached under all circumstances. Since lotus blooms in the morning and withdraws its petals in the night, it signifies that one’s mind blooms with the illumination of self- knowledge and cringes without it.

Keeping that in mind for my cards I have used Lotus stamp set from peekaboodesigns and created 2 different cards. 


For the First card I have given lotus stamp border and kept it simple with adding sentiments . 

Happy sentiment is from we r memory keepers stamp and die set and Diwali sentiment is again from peekaboodesigns.



In the second card I have used 2 different Lotus stamps and created a border and corner along with the sentiments .
