Few years ago, Deepawali wishes were sent to near and dear ones via greeting cards.
As a child I remember collecting so many of them which we received every year through India Post.

Now is the age of mobiles and other gadgets. The mode of sending Deepawali wishes has got itself upgraded to text messages, whatsapp messages or phone calls. 

We thought of reliving my lost school days. We tried making greeting cards at home as a special event during the festival.

Once your drawing is finished, pour shimmery powder or shiny sparkling materials all over the drawings. Shake a little for everything to stick well along the glue drawing. Remove the rest by pouring all the extra items on a waste newspaper.
