I’m Manu, a software professional turned Craftpenter :) having interest in varied kinds of  art and crafts and someone who enjoy's making handmade things. I'm a mom of 2 old cutie pie and she's made life all the more enjoyable and fun ! I started with paper crafts and ventured into the crafting world accidentally while going  through a card that had been posted by one of my friends. A bit curious, I asked and got to  know that it's done through quilling, thus started my search on the internet and I bumped and bumped into loads of information and that's when I decided to take this hobby of mine forward.

I find crafting extremely satisfying and relaxing and it just brings out a smile when someone is happy because of my work!!!I'm blessed to have a loving and a supporting husband by my side along with the love of our lives, our little baby!!!

Cute Christmas Card

Hi friends,
Here is a CAS card that I made for our Challenge#1 - Holiday Greeting.

I took a 300 gsm Kraft card stock stamped our newly launched stamp "Merry Christmas" with black archival ink. Fussy cut the stamped image. pasted it on a card piece using double sided foam tape to give it a little dimension. Water Colored it using distress ink. 
From the same stamp set heat embossed the sentiment. Added golden sequins a white button and twine to add in a little color.
