Happy 2019 New Years Rainbow Bokeh Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Can you believe 2018 is almost over!?! I sure can't 😲 

Not sure about the rest of you but this year has just flown by in a blink of an eye! I have so much to be thankful for this year, especially for all the opportunities this Crafty Community has brought me. With that said, I am looking forward to 2019 and hope I can figure out how to better balance work, family and crafting so that it won't feel like I am burning a candle at both ends.😵

For today's card, I wanted to create a party on paper and hopefully, that comes across.

CARD DETAILS

To create this card, I began by blending out distress oxide inks onto Bristol paper in somewhat of diagonal rainbow order (see links below for colors). I then used all of Polka Dot Background Stencils to create the Bokeh effect on the rainbow background by simply using a baby wipe to lift color from the circles. 

Once the background was completely dry, I used the dotted pattern stamp from the Bitty Patterns stamp set to add confetti to the edge of the background and then used gold embossing to heat set the sprinkles.

Next, I ran the background panel through the die cutting machine with the largest Deckle Edge Frame Die and then attached it to an A2 card base using foam tape. The letters I used comes from the Bee Bold Alphabet Dies and the numbers come from the Bee Bold Numeric Dies which were all diecut three times, stacked and glued together.
