Festive season is here and I bring to you a post exclusively on handmade cards. Don’t you love sending cards to your dear ones on special occasions? When I was a kid I used to send cards to all my dear ones at festivals and on their birthdays too but I never bought a card from the market I always preferred handmade cards and I still prefer handmade stuff. So today on Design Decor & Disha, I have the pleasure to introduce you to an artist who makes beautiful cards for every occasion. Each card is unique and beautiful. Welcome Eesha Kolli, please let us know more about you:
Thank you so much Disha for giving me the opportunity to share my art with your readers.
I am married to a wonderful and very supportive man. I am currently living in New Jersey, USA. I hail from Andhra Pradesh, India. I am an IT consultant by profession. However, my innate passion for arts and crafts has made me grow into a freelance ‘Pencil Portrait’ artist, Mixed Media Artist and Storyboard artist. I enjoy getting my hands on any of these – ‘Card making, Designing, craft making, sketching, doodling or painting with any medium’. That’s my ‘Love For Art in Many Forms

What drew me into Card making:
I have developed a great interest in Handmade Greeting cards lately and have been working on them since 2012. A wide array of tools, colours and techniques involved in card making, probably, drew my attention. You could apply almost any technique, use any medium of art and make a greeting card. Handmade cards reflect the personality of the artist. Handmade cards reflect the time, effort, thought, planning, wishes, exclusivity and creativity that you have undertaken for the person you want to greet. They are unique and not one in a lot of hundreds or thousands. Card making is not time-consuming like many art forms, with the right tools in hand. For a working woman like me, this is an advantage.
My blog and Me
‘Love For Art in Many Forms’ was started in June 2012, with the idea to showcase all my crafty creations which involve paper as a medium. It is a great way to connect with fellow crafters and also participate in multiple challenges. I was able to make it into several design teams through this blog. This is the point where I draw all my inspiration from.

What are the tools I use for card-making
There are plenty of tools that I use for card making. Paper trimmers, punches, stamps, ink pads, heating and embossing tools, knives, watercolours, copic markers and several kinds of adhesives are a few to mention.

Anything colourful and striking inspires me. I visit the kwernerDesigns and RaspberrySuite blogs very often, as these women inspire and motivate me like no other. Pinterest is another important source of inspiration for me.

Other interests apart from card-making
I love interior designing and party ensembles. I browse through various websites and blogs to observe the trends. I’m particularly interested in Ethnic Indian interiors and ‘Design Décor and Disha’ is one of those blogs to go to.
I also do some freelance party decorations and pencil portraits.
What I Aspire to be
I constantly dream and work towards turning into a designer for cards and party ensembles. I’d love to see my brand of cards deck in the galleries and stores.
So if you are planning a party or want to send love to your near and dear ones or maybe just want to express your feelings in a beautiful and unique way, now you know to whom you should approach. Thanks, Eesha for inspiring us I wish you great success ahead!!
