Tag Birthday Card!

Good Afternoon !!

I hope you enjoyed my Chocolate treats.

I am back again with a BIRTHDAY TAG-CARD. Here is a sneak peek..
Tag Birthday Card

It is a birthday card made for a very special friend of mine 'Divya'. We are college buddies and since our college ended February, 2016, we won't be together on her birthday for the first time in 6 years. So I made a card for her, which I am gonna post soon(as she is from J&K). Miss you Dibdi...


Coming to the card, I have used a new technique here known as BOKEH TECHNIQUE. I came to know about it while participating in happily ever crafter's crafty quiz. I am always afraid of using watercolors as they do not blend for me. But this one is really simple and the results are really pretty.
All the elements in this card have been upcycled except for the paper and the water colors.

Firstly, I took a white cardstock and colored it with Bokeh Technique. Then i made the tag again using corrugated sheet from packaging boxes( I just love their texture..after using them for my Friendship shaker tag). For the bg of the tag I used an old gift wrap. To tone down the color I glued an old slightly opaque polythene (tried gesso but it didn't give the desired results). Added a handmade flower and a few leaves( cut out from a magazine). Then used an old net to make a half bow like shape. Added a hand written sentiment with sparkling edge. In place of ribbon in the tag I have used threads (from an old Rakhi). Then attached the tag to the card and embellished it with pearls (from an old garland) and blings (from wedding cards). Finally added some faux stitches. And Tada!! The card is ready.

I didn't take step by step pics as I wasn't sure how it was gonna turn out.
But here are some more shots.
