Happy Birthday Dad!

My dad’s birthday coming Monday! :)

This is the card I’ve made for him – on behalf of my lil one Keerthana.


This is card is abso digital! All stamps are digital! So I’ve listed the stamps & their sources end of the post.


The card fold is called the tri-fold or  the quadra-fold depending the tutorial you refer to :) I referred to this tutorial @ craftiblog


Hope this picture shows you the folds and valleys better :)

Isn’t Darby a sweetie? I bought this digital stamp from allthatscraps


She reminds me of my own lil sprite! :)


The entire card has tons of small digi images popped up and loads of glitter. I put them all in one page word document, printed it, cut them apart and coloured them with pencils:) Made it really easy!

  • Foam balloons and hats – itsybitsy
  • Happy Birthday sentiment from Meljen
  • Cupcakes from papercraftinspirations (PIN65.templates2). They are topped with flowers from itsybitsy again
  • Alice in the wonderland cake from pieceandjoy 
  • Monkey with the balloon from Dustin Pike
  • Apart from the Darby sprite – all other digi stamps are free.

I’m submitting this card to these challenges

ETA: I understand SirStampALot wants this to be entries to only 6. Now I dont know which ones to choose. And don’t see how I can delete my entry into the others! :( So I’ll have to just let this be!

Thanks for looking! :)

Dad doesn’t check my blog and so I am hoping he won’t see this yet. Happy Birthday dad. I love you.

PS: In the sentiment on the inside of the card which reads “Happy Birthday Thatha” - Thatha means grand-dad in Tamil :)

I like the glittered wings :) Using the shimmer 3-D glitter by Fevicryl!

Sentiment – computer generated – Angelica font – as usual :)

Entering this for challenge


Thanks for looking.

ETA: Quick tip on Digi storage:

I know some of us, if you are like me, might find it a little difficult to remember where we got our free digis from. I’ve devised an idea. Hope it helps you too!

Just add the Blog’s name to the end of the digi and you can find the source, so that you can credit the crafter, quickly.

I want to thank the so many wonderful crafters all over the world who share their talents so generously. Thanks! :)
