Bokeh Celebrate You Card

I made this adorable card with my Stampin' Up! Celebrate Today stamp set. I love this set! It's so festive and really versatile too! I love how this turned out. The soft colors look great together and the bokeh technique turned out really well. Here's how to make it:

First cut a 6" x 9 1/2" piece of pink card stock and fold it in half for the base, a 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" piece of yellow for the middle layer and a 4 3/8" x 5 1/2" piece of white for the front layer. Next create the background with the bokeh technique. Click here for an awesome watercolor bokeh tutorial, however I actually sponged this background. Here's how I did it:

First randomly sponge a piece of white card stock with the following Stampin' Up! ink pads: Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, and So Saffron and allow it to dry. *Hint-you can avoid darker spots if you begin sponging just off of the card stock and work your way in. In the mean time cut acetate with various sizes of circle dies to create a stencil. Using a sponge or sponge dauber, white craft ink, and the stencil, color in circles all over the card stock, overlapping some. Let the card stock dry completely then finish your card: 

Stamp the balloons and ribbons on white card stock in Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron inks and cut them out with the Stampin' Up! Balloons Framelits Dies. Next attach them to the front layer with mini pop dots then cut out the sentiment with a Stampin' Up! Bitty Banner Framelits Die, sponge it's edges with Pink Pirouette ink and stamp the sentiment with a stamp from a Stampin' Up! Cupcake Party set in Soft Sky ink. Then attach it to the front layer with mini pop dots, attach the front layer to the middle layer, the middle layer to the base and enjoy!
