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


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:
