Ever since I learned about Diwali, I’ve enjoyed making designs for this exciting holiday! I’ve shared colorful lamps and intricate tea light holders in the past, and I’m sure there will be more Diwali projects in my future.
This year, I thought it would be fun to design a card inspired by one of my favorite animals; and one that happens to be native to India (where Diwali is primarily celebrated)—the peacock!
Even if you don’t celebrate Diwali, I think this card would make quite a statement for a number of occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries, graduations—you name it! I know that I would be absolutely thrilled if I were to receive a card like this. And all it takes is a cutting machine and a few sheets of paper to make, but your recipient doesn’t have to know that.
I use Adobe Illustrator for all my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fun freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy making this elegant peacock card for Diwali or any other special occasion! I’d love to see your results, so be sure to share them with me by either tagging me on Instagram or by sharing your work in my Facebook Group.
