Sending off Mixed Bunch and the Modern Label Punch with a Blue Bokeh Card

JenniferCards, Techniques0 Comments

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. Smile)

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.
