Hello friends!
This is Priyadarshini, creative designer at Craftyscrappers and i am here with some traditional colourful cards for Holi.

I have a total of 3 cards here and the background of these cards are different. They are very simple and easy cards. 

Holi is a widely celebrated festival in North India. It is also called as ‘Festival of colours’ or ‘festival of love’ where it signifies the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. 

but before I begin with it I want to let you all know that our monthly craft challenge is now on…so do take part to win some exciting goodies from craftyscrapperscheck out the challenge here ↓

Card 2 – Colourful background

I have 2 cards using different mediums to make the background i.e., alcohol markers and ink blending.  I used heavy cardstock to do the blending. 

Alcohol marker background CARD


  1. For this card, I used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. 
  2. I used shades of blue, green and yellow and blended the colours out.
  3. I started with darker shade and used the lightest one to blend the colours.
  4. I trimmed down the card and added it on to my top fold note card.
  5. I used Versafine black onyx ink for the sentiment and the palm image. 
  6. To finish the card, I added some sequins and liquid pearls.

Ink blending background


  1. To make this card, I did ink blending for the background. 
  2. I used Altenew inks – warm sunshine, lavender fields, frayed leaf and ocean waves for the background. 
  3. Yellow brings out the brightness in colours. 
  4. Since its dye ink, it dries up fast. 
  5. I stamped the sentiment, bucket image and palm image using Altenew jet black ink (after it has dried completely to avoid smudging)
  6. To finish the card, I added liquid pearls and added this to a side fold note card.
