Bokeh Background And Zig Zag Border Dies

Hi Everyone, its Tina here. I have a card to share with you using a Bokeh Background and the new Zig Zag Border dies. I used the Zig Zag Stitch Border dies to tone back my background. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Cardstock  to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim White Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Using the Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes apply Distress Oxide Inks in various sizes of circles. I used Seedless Preserves, Antique Linen, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door.

Step 3 – Diecut Never Ending Circles to create a stencil of various size circles. For a smaller circle use any punch or circle you have from another set. Randomly apply various sizes of circle using White Ink and a mini ink blending tool to the background created from Step 2. See photo below for finished Bokeh Background. Let Dry then adhere to card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Step 4 – Diecut Zig Zag Stitch Border two times using White Cardstock. Adhere to card one on top and one on the bottom using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. The white helps to tone down the background.

Step 5 – Diecut sentiment and adhere to card using Collage Medium.

Step 6 – For added interest adhere Fuschia Jewels using a Crystal Katana and collage medium.

This card can be used for any occasion by changing the sentiment and colors. There are many new Zig Zag Stitch Dies in the store in various shapes.
