Pretty Little Studio: National Donut Day

Friday, June 7, 2019

Morning, y'all!  I trust you're all doing well.  We've had a super busy start to the summer, and it looks to just keep getting busier and busier; but I'm uber excited to have had a little time to get creative this week.  I made a quartet of cards in honor of today being National Donut Day.  They happen to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog this morning.  Check 'em out!
I started these cards by Cameo-cutting the donut bases from Crumb Cake cardstock and the icing tops from a variety of Pretty Little Studio prints, which I'll direct you to as we get up close and personal with each one, using Kim Watson's free Donut cut file over at Scrapbook and Cards Today.  The icing itself was coated in Glossy Accents for shine; and while it was still drying, I added lots of silver seed bead, sequin, and confetti sprinkles.  Each donut sets atop a 4" Cambridge Doily and opens to have a little room for a personal message on the inside but also has a variety of computer-generated and printed, on scrumptious Rose Gold Metallic Cut-Apart Labels, sentiments, tucked in between the folds of the cards themselves.  The gorgeous, teal color, that comes from the Night Thinker 8x8 print, might make this one my favorite of the bunch.
It's sentiment reads "You are the icing on my donut." over personalized Always Aqua Sequins.
The left end of the sentiment was grounded with a mix of Floral Fantasy Die Cuts, some of which were popped up with foam tape, as well as a Baker's Twine bow.
This pink beauty boasts the Leave Your Mark 8x8 print...
a "Donut forget I love you!" sentiment; Fuchsia Pink Sequins...
and a combination of Floral Fantasy and Happy Place Die Cuts, mixed together with a Baker's Twine bow.
I love how sunny the Shine from Within 8x8 print makes this third donut.
Its "I donut know how to thank you!" sentiment, over Sunsational Sequins...
was anchored with a different combination of Floral Fantasy and Happy Place Die Cuts but the same Baker's Twine bow...
and the fourth and final card was made with my niece in mind.  Her birthday happens to be next Saturday, and I know she loves her sweets.  I'm hoping this donut, with its soft green, So Dreamy 8x8, printed frosting, brings a smile to her face.
It possesses a "Sprinkled with Love" sentiment over Seaspray Sequins...
and anchored with a couple of Floral Fantasy Die Cuts, as well as the customary, Baker's Twine bow.
Thanks, as always, for visiting, friends!  Have a wonderfully blessed weekend, and be sure to enjoy a sweet treat of your own in honor of this fun day... hopefully, one with a few more calories than these ;).  XOXO
