Every year I have one item on the Stampin’ Up retiring list that I can’t believe is going away. This year, I can’t believe the Modern Label punch is retiring! Especially since it goes so awesomely with the Word Window punch! I guess that just means I have to enjoy it now (and hang on to mine and keep loving it after they stop making it too. )
Today I wanted to share another Bokeh card we did in my technique class. I think I’ve decided I love mixing in colored circles with my white circles when doing the Bokeh technique. What do you think?

Tips for making this card:
- Start with a piece of vellum and some circle punches – I used the 1”, 1-1/4”, and 1-3/8” circles and punch out a template to use for layering.
- Randomly sponge the background with your favorite color combination
(this was Lost Lagoon, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, and Hello Honey)
- Use your circle template to layer colored and WHITE craft ink circles on top of your background. It looks best if you overlap your circles.
- Keep it interesting by adding a punched flower, but trim some of the edges so it fits to colored layer (kind of makes it look like it is behind a window or something, huh?)
- The Venetian Crochet trim is a nice, soft addition to cards without being too girly because of it’s thin size.
