Happy Birthday Card: Pencil colored Dahlia

Hi Friends!

Wishing a very Happiest Birthday to the ones, who share this date with me :)

A special birthday wishes to Jasnoor Kaur, my dear crafty friend Jasleen's little princess and also to my sub-junior friend! Am so lucky to know these souls and its always absolute joy in wishing them "Happy Birthday" on my birthday :) I especially make cards to fill my blog space with birthday note!

And for today,

Made a card using PowerPoppy Dahlia digital stamp. As always, am one big fan of Marcella's artistic illustrations. Her digis + pencil coloring is my fave go to!













  • Pencil colored this power poppy digi by printing it onto a white cs.
  • After coloring, fussy cut and colored its white edges using Black soot distress marker.
  • The bg is made using Yupo translucent sheet + 3 shades of Alcohol inks - Mermaid, Citrus, Lemonade.
  • The sentiment is directly printed onto vellum and diecut using stitched rectangle dies.
  • Yupo paper is also diecut using same stitched rectangle dies.
  • Its then matted onto white A2 top fold card.
  • The vellum focal panel is topped over the yupo paper in such a way that the organic design of alcohol inks were showing up around the focal image.
  • Few clear dew droplets added as finishing touches.
Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!
