Nowrūz is March 21, 2014 and this card with apples, representing Earth in the haft sin, is the perfect way to greet it.
It also features a heart chipboard sticker that has been placed on the words Nowruz Mabrook on vellum attached to brown cardstock.
Nowruz is Iranian New Years, an official holiday lasting for 13 days during which most national functions including schools are off and festivities take place.
Apples are said to represent Earth in the Haft Sîn (Persian: هفت سین) or the seven 'S's is a major traditional table setting of Nowruz. The haft sin table includes seven items starting with the letter 'S' or Sīn (س) in the Persian alphabet.
The card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and is on beige cardstock and comes with a beige envelope in a protective plastic sleeve.
I made it in my non-smoking, pet free craft room.
Merci for looking!
