The Divine Springtime
However, for Baha’is, Naw Ruz also has deep spiritual significance. Naw Ruz marks the end of the 19-day Baha’i Fast, which is a period of reflection and profound spiritual reinvigoration for Baha’is. Naw-Ruz was ordained by Baha’u'llah as a celebration of humanity’s “spiritual springtime”: the Baha’i dispensation.
To commemorate this occasion and to share the joy, I created these bright and cheerful pink cards.
Digital text was printed on sheets cherry index and also to sheets of white index. The cherry index was cut and scored to make the body of the card. The white index was punched using a small tag punch.
A digital image was printed on coated cover stock and die cut in a label shape, then mounted on a larger white background cut in the same label shape. Several punches were used with pink, tan and white paper, including a swirl, leafy branch and large and small flowers with the tiny black circles. After these components were glued into place, glitter was glued onto the flowers in the digital image to give the image some sparkle and shine and the finishing touch!
May this New spring season bring many blessings and increase the joy and happiness in your hearts and life!
