Retro Eid Card For Fundraising

Tuesday, 8 September 2009

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

I wanted to scrap up a few hundred Ramadan/Eid cards to sell at local schools. Thinking of young students' budgets I opted for a very simple but effective card; the original design from last year is here.



These are the pre-creased cards I use. I have about 1000 left of the original 6000 ordered a couple of years ago.

I demanded the Islamic greeting of 'As salamualaykum' meaning 'peace be with you' be printed inside. And my name and contact is on the back!

Extremely cool.










So for the Eid card funky squares of patterned paper were needed.

CHECK.















Patterned squares are positioned onto DL (tall) card vertically alligned. CHECK!













For a retro 'E' emblem, of course representing EID these punch outs are fab'lous. There are loads of colours available and you just stick'em everywhere!

Letter 'E'. CHECK.








For corner flower power I found some flower cut outs (not the card ones originally looking for, pooey) and brads. Brads are what we English call 'paper fasteners' but in the crafting world there's a brad for every colour, shape and size. I sometimes in delirium use them as ear-rings...

Gold brad & flowers. CHECK.









And there it is all assembled.

One down, 199 to go! Yayy...

Bismillah, 'in the name of God'. Eek!

The card is lovely! I've always loved making my own cards; they mean so much more than store-bought.
Also, I adore your header picture; it's so pretty!
