Technique Card

And it’s Saturday again! This week our theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Hop is using special technique on card.

One of my favorite techniques is the Bokey technique.  I have a window sheet panel with circles cut out so when I want to do the technique I can just pull that out, pick my colors and get to work!  Here’s what I came up with…

Here’s the details…

  • Grapefruit Grove – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, do the Bokey technique by sponging Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove and Coastal Cabana into the circles then finish with White Kraft, layer onto Coastal Cabana 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front
  • Birthday Bonanza DSP – Grapefruit Grove Print – 3/4 x 3 1/2, add to card front, Daffodil Delight print – 2 x 3, add to card front, Coastal Cabana print – 3/4 x 3 3/4, ad to card front
  • Grapefruit Grove – stamp greeting using Memento Black, punch using 1″ Circle Punch, tuck under Coastal Cabana print
  • Whisper White – stamp flower and lady bug using Memento Black, color using Blends, cut out, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off

I like the different color for the lady bug set!

And now our latest collection…
