Jai Hind everyone!
Wishing you all a very happy Republic Day...
On this glorious 72nd republic day, I would love to show you a patriotic craft project.
These are called Bendi cards and looks fantastic!
(and is super easy to make too!)
Let's check out its construction...
To begin with, I took a 5 3/4" square of cardstock, a 2 3/4" x 5" and a 2" x 5" piece of cardstock.
Using a cloud stencil and Aqua Blue ink, I ink blended the sky background on the square cardstock.
The other two pieces were scored at 1/2" on both sides, folded and then blended with Lawn Green and Emerald Green inks for the ground and then shaped using stitched hillside dies.
Now, I attached the tabs of the larger rectangular piece from the left side of the square and the smaller one from the right side.
Placing in an appealing manner, I attached the other tab of the left piece, curving it, to around 1/4th short off the right side of the square and then the tab of the right piece, to around 1/3rd short off the left side of the square.
Here's a top view for your ease.
Now comes the fun part, decorating.
I made a flag, colored it and fussy cut it out, and attached it to a stick, and then adhered the end of the stick at the intersection of the smaller piece so it looked like a hoisted flag.
For the numbers 7 and 2, I stamped the images of the Seven Heaven and Talking Two stamp sets using Jet Black ink, colored them, fussy cut them, and added them to the front curve of the ground; and for the sentiment, I kept it minimal with just the word 'celebrate', stamped with the same Aqua Blue ink, cut it, and attached it to the back curve of the ground.
Here's a complete look at the project
I hope you liked this project, and if you did, don't forget to give it a try,
and until then,
Vande Matram & Keep crafting...
