Juhi's handmade cards





Hello friends, today I'm introducing you to my blog friend from India - Juhi Khanna of Juhi's Handmade Cards! I "met" Juhi through Card Patterns last year and I love that her cards always has lots of textures and bright vibrant colours! She's great at crochet and quilling (Two things I've been meaning to learn! :)...





 Here's a look at Juhi's work!





*********************************************
Hi, I'm Juhi from Bangalore, India and I am the guest blogger at Yvonne's blog for today. This is truly an honour for me because I am a HUGE admirer of her work. I would like to thank Yvonne for giving me this opportunity.

Now a little bit more about me...I am an electronics engineer who works with a semiconductor company at Bangalore. I discovered cardmaking a little more than a year ago and it has become almost an obsession now.

I love working with bright colors. My color inspiration comes from the rich textures and colors of Indian handmade paper. Since very few scrapbooking/cardmaking products are available in India I try to make the most of locally available materials which is intimidating at times but huge fun most of the times as it helps me think out of the box. 

I like to combine different styles and techniques in my work, for example add a quilled creation on a regular card (mostly because I am too impatient and lazy to make an entire quilled card :P ).This is what I have done on this project for my guest post. 


My challenge for you is to make a hybrid quilled project, i.e. add some quilling to your project, it need not be a flower, you can be as abstract as you want.........this is especially for those who haven't tried quilling yet (including you Yvonne!), trust me it's not as difficult as it seems and its a whole lot of fun too! So go on and surprise me..........

**************************************

Juhi really knows how to challenge me (and hopefully you!). I'll post my attempt at quilling tomorrow along with the winners of the previous challenges! Share your quilling attempts in this post! And a little love for my guest too! :) Pin It

I loved Juhi's card .I agree with her that living in India we are forced to be more creative as we don't get much craft stuff easily.
