Hello Lovely People,

I am here today with another card that I made for a friend's birthday, and yes... its the Bokeh Effect again! I just love how this effect makes the simple background so interesting!!
This is a A2 size card. I spread some clear water on the card panel. Then I used the distress inks to give it a water colour effect...just dropped the inks on top of the water and let them blend. I die cut the front panel with stitched rectangle die. I stamped 2 flowers and coloured them with Zig water colour markers (Yayyy!!! my first card with my new possession, the Zig Clean Real Brush Markers). Placed these flowers diagonally opposite in 2 corners.
I also die cut a piece of vellum with the stitched rectangle on the outside and with a oval die at the center. Then I die cut the sentiment Celebrate with a white glitter foam and placed it at the center of the card. I love how vibrant this card looks and the vellum provides some background to the flowers to show off their vibrancy! Then I arranged all the elements and pasted the card front on the card base with white glue. Added a few sequins to finish the card.
Supplies are listed at the end. Do leave your comments. Thank You!
