Hidden Inlaid Die Cut/Camouflage Technique - Dahlias for Zulmira


Hello my friends!

Today I have a beautiful birthday card to share with you featuring Wplus9's Beautiful Bouquet Dahlia and MFT's Little Letters Die-namics. This birthday card was made for a very special family friend. As you can see from the card, her name is Zulmira. I personally know what is it like to have such a unique name, and finding anything personalized is impossible unless it is custom made. When I receive anything with my name, it feels extra special because it's so uncommon. So that feeling is exactly what I had in mind when I created this. 


I had never done an inlaid die cut or camouflage technique before, but I am so happy with how it turned out. I'm pretty sure I will be doing more in the future! I really love how the letters pop off the card without taking away from the beautiful stamped design.


Here is how I finished the inside.
Love this scripty stamped birthday sentiment from Clearly Besotted.


I called on my inner Kathy Racoosin when I was coloring this, but I am no expert and about half way through I thought it I thought it was going to be scrapped! Luckily I kept going and love the end results 😍 I have learned that watercoloring takes patience and lots of layers...so just be patient! 

Here is the process video of my card for those interested in watching how it all came together. For a list of supplies I used check out the links below.
