3D Celebrate Today Card

This is a fast, easy card!  I just love cards that come together lickety-sizzle and look cute too!  I punched out three circles, folded them in half and then adhered them together to create a 3D look.

Celebrate Today Bokeh Technique/ Weekly Deals 3/24/2015

Celebrate Today Bokeh Card

We are having some foundation work done at the house...can you tell?  The front porch is gone and the dirt is pulled back from the foundation.  My poor flower beds are gone but my guys helped me pull out the roses before the backhoe arrived.

Update:  Here is the card with extra white circles added by the sponge dauber and also string from the SAB In Color Accessory pack.  Winner!
Hello and happy Tuesday!  Things have been hopping here lately.  Our foundation needed work and our porch was sinking (sloppy work initially) so life has been a bit crazy.  I did take time to work on this card this afternoon and thought that I would share.  I am going to put string on later tonight and also added a few more smaller white circles with Whisper White Craft ink.

  1. Sponge Navy all over a 3 3/4"x 5" sheet of White cardstock.
  2. Use the Big shot to cut circles (framelits) in the window sheet (cut my sheet in fourths).
  3. Lay the template over the navy sponged CS and sponge white craft ink all over circles.  I repositioned my template to add additional circles.
  4. Use the sponge daubers to add smaller circles in white and Chalk inks.
  5. Cut out the balloons in vellum with the balloon framelit.  Stamp the desired images with white ink.
  6. Adhere balloons and attach string.  I used the Chalk marker here to add strings.
Happy stamping!
