Welcoming Spring With Colours

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Hope you all are doing great !

This is Jasleen, and today I’ll be sharing a set of three colourful cards . Spring has arrived in most parts of the world and when I think 'Spring' , what comes into my mind first is the vibrant and cheerful colours all around. In India, we have a big festival that falls in this season and it actually marks the arrival of spring here. This festival is known as ‘Holi’ and it’s just a couple of days away. Basically, ‘Holi’ is a festival of colours, where people celebrate by splashing and smearing their near and dear ones with coloured powders and coloured water.  Fun, isn’t it? ;)

It is one of the most popular festivals of my country enjoyed and celebrated by young and old alike. The idea is just to connect with family and friends and have fun.

Holi cards Set of three 'Splats' cards

And in my today’s post, I’m sharing a set of three Holi/Spring-themed colourful cards, made using Sizzix Thinlits die from the set ‘Scribbles and splat’ and Thinlits die set ‘Birthday numbers’. Although this ‘scribbles and splat’ die-set may be intended to be used in mixed media creations, I couldn’t resist using the splatter die to make three clean and simple cards. Oh boy, are they versatile !!

It’s a long post, so grab a cup of  your favorite beverage, sit back and enjoy. :)
