Ketupat Card Tutorial

ACraftyArab Ketupat Card TutorialKetupat, or sometimes also called Malay rice dumpling, is a type of food from the Indonesian / Malaysian part of the world.

Since Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim-majority nation, with 86.1% of Indonesians being Muslim and Malaysia has made Islam the state religion with it’s 60.4% of the population practicing Islam, we thought we would include something from that part of the world in our Ramadan challenge.

We took the shape of the Ketupat and made it into a card.
