As a card maker, the lack of Islamic theme stamps, especially sentiments always bothered me. I’m always looking for sets that I can use for Eid cards, as I have a handful of Altenew Eid sentiments I can use with them. But for any other occasion, I stick to English sentiments, like Congrats and Thank You. So you can only imagine my excitement when I came across DStamps on Instagram and saw their Salam stamp set. I used their Eid sentiments set for my Ramadan/Eid cards, but now I get to share with you every day cards with Arabic sentiments!
For today’s cards I made thank you cards, but with Arabic Sentiments! Perfect for Eid thank you cards, right? But to add a little twist, I decided to make them “open cards” using background/cover dies.
For the first card, I die cut my current favorite lattice die, twice. I scored the top of one, added strong double sided adhesive and adhered the two together. For the front of the card I adhered the colored wreath, and backed it with wreath diecut to hide the adhesive. For the back of the card, I die cut a circle just smaller than the wreath, stamped and embossed a sentiment from DStampss, I also backed this one with another matching circle for a finished look and a place to stamp my handmade by stamp! Make sure to die cut the background die from heavy cardstock.
For the second card, I used a layer die set, cutting the bottom later twice. For the front of the card, I adhered the two layers, and added the embossed sentiment circle and a watercolored floral image. I die cut three more circles to back the sentiment, and add a place to add a message on the back of the card. I water colored the image and the sentiment circle quickly with some zig real brush markers.
Which card is your favorite? I don’t think I can choose! I hope you enjoyed this card and come back tomorrow for another set of cards!
