Card no:30 - Easy Cards For Ramadhan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

Dear Everyone
This is a simple and an easy card I made for my friends for Ramadhan
You will be needing some cardstock, in different colors, like brown and cream etc
Scissors, glue, flower of your choice, any floral stamp and brown ink and pen, that’s all.

Card Instructions

Step 1:

*Using your trimmer and glue or glue glider, make some 4 to 5 cards handy by pasting coffee color cardstock to cream ready Basic Cards (Landscape cards are 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″)

Note: One-quarter of an A4 sheet of card stock is also considered a standard card size.

Step 2:

*Using your brown ink (mine is Colorbox Chestnut Brown) just dab with the sponge at the sides of the card.

Step 3:

*Just cut two cardstock pieces, brown and cream and rough the sides of the cream cardstock with the scissors. See below.

Its easy, just rub the cutting side of the scissors, to the card edge, it will give the rough look like this one and paste them.

Step 4:

Make a flower with a rubber mat or plastic mat (left over) or you can use any flower of your own choice.

And make some stitch line at the sides of the flower.

Attach the flower to the card using glue, and put a button on the center of the flower.

Step 5:
Write some Card wordings on the cream card, which is on the top, with a brown pen.

Step 6:

Finally make some small frames by cutting some brown stock, in a square, then cut it into diagonal, and trimming the outer side abt ¼ inch. See below.

Attach them to the corners of the card at opposite directions.

And here you go, Your Card is Ready.


The other card I also made with the same combinations,


Write some card wordings and make stitching lines at the sides.

Using your stamps, (I use my own handmade stamp) stamp twice on the card with one turn of the ink pad so that you will get the light and dark shade of the ink, I hope you get it. See below.

Finally put some glitter or dust on the stamp flowers. That’s all!

Finished look.

Happy Cardmaking!

Thanks everyone..

Card no:29 - Another Special Bouquet Card.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
Hello Everyone!
This is Another Special Bouquet Card
For Our Another Arabic Teacher
On behalf of All the Students,
It is also a Thank you Card,
For Details check the step by step Instructions.
Thank you!

Dear friends,
The tutorial is almost the same as in my previous post,
A Flower Bouquet Card (Card no.28)
only few things i have changed and used instead of other things, and the new thing about this card is i made two of the red roses myself (through quilling technique) and i have explained that through pictures below, so follow the instructions, and here you go!


Step 1
I crumbled the light brown paper, and opened and pressed with iron, to give it a distressed messy look.

Step 2
I tear it with the help of a steel ruler to the size i wanted on the card.

Step 3
Then Adhere the paper to the card using Roller tape (its the best) or you can use any glue stick.

Step 4
Then I made the Flower bouquet the same way i did before in (Flower Bouquet Card)
but this time i used some Handmade Red Roses and some ready made Peach Roses
See the instructions how i made the Red Roses below.

I Colour the Plain white silky leaves to Green leaves.

And Here is my Flower Bouquet which is ready to use on Card.

Step 5
I collected some mesh, in Red and Peach Colour and some Tieing stuff (its not a thread nor a ribbon, you can called it a string but its not that even *smiles*) you may have seen it on a cake or bakery boxes, which is wrapped/closed through this sort of a ribbon/string.

I neatly tie a Bow of that string, and attached the peach mesh with the school glue at the bottom.

I put the Red Mesh square under the Bouquet Diagonally, and added some dry stems into the bouquet and made the tag finally.

That's all!

How to make Quilled Roses.
Materials You'll be needing are:
  1. Thin Red Strip of paper ( I took 3/4 " x 12" long strip approx)
  2. Quilling Tool or a Wooden tooth pick (you can use that too)
  3. Tissue Dotted Ribbon (Any thick width wise Ribbon)
  4. A Coloured Wire ( I used Green Wire)
  5. Green Crepe Paper or Tissue Paper or Kite Paper (use some thin stuff)
Quilling Roses are easy to make,
use a Quiling tool or a wooden tooth pick (it works, I have done with that too)

Start rolling your red strip of paper, (if you are using a tooth pick, then do glue the strip at the very beginning, roll once and stick it there,using glue, then continue rolling, so it will not fall or come out)

So Start rolling the paper, make some spirals (swirls) then turn your strip at a 90 degree right angle, downwards, and keep rolling with that turning, (don't worry if it goes messy) turn again and again at 90 degrees downwards every time and keep rolling your tool, until you finish your strip.
Now just make it loose and glue the end of the Strip to the rose.

A Video Tutorial of a Quilled Rose (from where i have learned)

I hope it will help you all.

After i made the roses, I cut the dotted tissue ribbon in square and the green kite paper in Star shape and attached them together to the rose, at the bottom and then wired the Rose.

This is the Ready bouquet which i used on the Card.

That's all Folks!
Happy Bouquet making!
Be happy always!

Card no: 28 - A Flower Bouquet Card

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
Dear sisters, friends and Everyone!

ll the Students.

Its an easy Card, and it Turns out so beautiful.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. In this card I started with a brown sheet of paper, which I crumbled as much as I can (take a thick paper not very delicate ‘cause it will tear easily while crumbling) I crumbled and opened the paper then crumbled again so that I can get a whole distressed look, everywhere, then I pressed the sheet with iron to make it straight.
  2. I tore the sides/edges with the help of a steel ruler, and tore in a distressed way, to get rough sides and corners.
  3. Then I used a Thick (width) Floral tissue Ribbon (daisy flower Ribbon) and adhere it to the bottom of the card.
  4. I string the top of the card with a thread and tie a bow, adding some beads at the end of the strings/threads.
  5. Then I made a bouquet using off white Crepe Paper, you just have to make a fan of it, then tie thread/ribbon/strings at the bottom, and open it, and pressed it down to give it a crinkled look, I then added some readymade flowers (roses and sunflowers) and leaves, I attached it to the card center, with a tilted position, over the ribbon.
  6. Finally I made the tag and wrote the wordings,
    جزاك الله جنة الفردوس
    May Allah reward you Jannah AlFirdous
  7. In the End I Sprinkled some golden glitter to make everything Sparkle *smiles* thats all!
