The Namesake-inspired card

I blogged about this movie (The Namesake) a few months back. First off, it didn’t take watching the trailer to know that I would love it. I’m a huge fan of the director, Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, Mississippi Masala) AND Kal Penn (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle). I even got to eat lunch with Kal one time, and he is such a wonderful, genuine person who cares so much about his craft, as well as his culture. Anyway, this film is about a traditional Indian couple living in the U.S., and their American born son who is having a hard time juggling both worlds.

The Namesake qualifies as a crafty cinema film because there is a scene of the mother making a batch of handmade holiday cards for her family and friends. Even though the scene was a short one, it has oodles of details. Her cards and art supplies are spread out all across the entire dining table – so ture, right? And then she decorates the cards with a handpainted elephant, and clusters of micro beads at the top.In honor of my appreciation for the film, I made this card (below) similiar to the one featured in the movie.

And I added in the movie trailer too!

Love & light,
