Diwali Pop up Cards and Template

Diwali Pop up Cards
Its Diwali time in India.Diwali is an Indian festival of lights and is celebrated with lamps, lights and crackers.I was too lazy to make any Diwali cards earlier but today my daughter had Diwali celebrations in school and this morning we whipped up 2 super quick Diwali pop up cards
I kept the front of the card simple and stuck a  lighted lamp sticker with foam tape on some gorgeous white embossed cards Lisa Jane had sent me in her giveaway.[ Thank You Lisa those embossed cards are awesome]

Here is the closeup of the Diwali Pop up card pattern. It was pretty easy to make this pop up card- No craft knife involved only scissors and folding!

I am always amazed at the generosity of bloggers!Last night my husband came home with a parcel from my blogger pal Jovita who has opened a new craft store and is selling Pie Lane stuff and lots of other goodies. She had sent my daughter some gorgeous Pie Lane Diwali themed stickers and making these cards with those stickers was a breeze-- my daughter really enjoyed herself! Thank You so much Jovi.
My daughter has 2 teachers and we made fairly similar Diwali cards using different stickers

The Diwali themed stickers looked so gorgeous I didnt want to clutter the pop up card with any other elements.
