Post 294: CAS Diwali Card

Hi friends!

I'd like to share a Clean & Simple Diwali Card today. 
Diwali is the festival of lights & festivities. And it is the time we spend with our friends & family. 
So I thought of making a few cards to give to my loved ones :) 
The sentiment on this is in the hindi language and it means "Have a Blessed Diwali"
For this card, I have done heat embossing in gold through a stencil. 

List of Supplies:
Peekaboo Designs Stamp Set- All Occasions Hindi
The Crafter’s Workshop Stencil- Mini Fleur De Lis Doily
Versamark Watermark Mini stamp pad
Ranger’s Embossing Powder- Gold (super fine detail)
Ranger’s Heat Tool
Homemade Emboss buddy (some corn flour stitched into a cloth bag)
Navy Blue Cardstock 250 gsm
Acrylic Block/Stamping Tool
Mudra Sequins- Gold
Ranger’s Glossy Accents

Procedure:

1. Prepared the cardbase by dabbing an emboss buddy on the surface (to avoid static so that the embossing powder doesn’t unnecessarily stick to it) then using the stencil as a template, dabbed the versamark stamp pad through the design. After that spread some gold embossing powder onto the sticky ink and flicked off any extra using a dry brush. Then heat embossed the design with a heat tool.
2. In a similar way, heat embossed the sentiment by stamping it in versamark ink.
3. Finished the card by adding a few gold sequins. 

Here are a couple of photos of the card:

I am playing along with the following challenges:
