The Fruits & Vines Eid Greeting
Every year when the holy month of Ramadan approaches, I usually already have some designs for Eid greeting card that I'm going to send to family, relatives and friends. Each year I come up with different theme, style, color and nuance. A lot of things become my inspiration, but I love to get it from the verses in the Koran and apply it into my card. As a Muslim, I feel close and humble to the Highest being like this, by reading the verses and try to translate it into an art work. This year I decided to create several Eid cards using patterned paper that has grapes (or blueberries) as motif. My inspiration is the verse from Chapter 16 or Surah An-Nahl meaning THE BEE, verses 10 - 11.
