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.

  • 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
