Smiles Friendship Card

The bokeh card is so on trend right now, so I am a bit late to the party. But, today I created a friendship card using the colors for this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Topiary, Lagoon, Glacier, Sunset, and Cranberry.


So, if you don't know how to do the bokeh technique, I highly suggest watching one of the many YouTube videos available. For this card, I created the effect on Colonial White cardstock with Glacier, Lagoon, and Topiary Inks. The focal circles are created using White Daisy. I created a template using Cricut Craftroom, so that I can create more of these. 

I heat embossed the smile sentiment using a shiny silver, and set that on top of a cluster of Sunset washi tape and cardboard that I painted with White Daisy. Finally, I added some bling with Epoxy bubbles.


For the inside, I created a Lagoon patch, and stamped a sentiment from the now retired Happy Everything stamp set.

I am also entering this card in this week's Between the Folds Bling Spark and Shine Challenge.

Ingredients:


Happy Scrapping, My Artsy Friends!

    1. Thanks, Donna! I've never used cardboard before, but the card was too flat without it!
