Happy Friday, Crafty Friends! Today I'm creating a tasty border using the new Birthday Donut stamp set. This stamp set comes with two different sized donut stacks and two wonderful sentiments. I'll be going over all of the ingredients for this sweet birthday card!
Birthday Donut Stamp Set
Scallops & Rectangles Nesting Dies
Two 5.5" x 4.25" pieces of white Copic friendly card stock
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink (or other Copic friendly ink)
Copic Markers (or you can use other coloring mediums, but make sure to use the right kind of paper for them)
Distress Inks (or similar)
Nuvo Crystal Drops: Morning Dew (or similar)
First put one piece of white card stock into the corner of your Misti. Using your larger donut set, stamp the image about 3/4" from the left side.
Without removing the stamp, stamp the second piece of white card stock in the same spot.
Next, stamp the same large donut image on masking paper and fussy cut it out.
Now, remove the stamp from the Misti, clean it and place it 3/4" from the right side of the card stock and lower it a little so they aren't at the same high level. Repeat this on the second piece of white card stock.
Remove the large donut stamp.
Apply the donut mask over the stamped large donut stack on the right.
Line up the smaller donut stack stamp on the left of the image and stamp it. Do the same on the second piece of white card stock.
Leaving the mask on, remove the small donut stack stamp and move it to the right side of the larger donut stack. Again, repeat on the other white card stock.
Now, make a mask of the small donut stack stamped image.
Remove the large donut mask and place it on the large donut stamp on the left. Apply the small donut mask on the small donut stamped image that will laps over.
Stamp the small donut stack on the left and right of the large stack to fill in the border. Repeat this on the white card stock. You should have two matching donut bordered pieces.
On one of the pieces, stamp the sentiment where it fights in between candles.
Using the border dies, die cut one with the larger scallops and use the smaller die on the second piece. This will create a layered look.
Using Festive Berries distress Ink, color in the edges of the scalloped edged card stock. You only need to color the edges that will show.
Using Copics, color in the donuts. This can be simple by coloring the same donuts the same colors, or you can get creative and color each stack differently. Colors used:
RV23, RV21, E31, E53, E59, E29, E25, E23, E11, YR20, E50 , Y19, Y06 & Lady Bug Red Memento Marker
Using Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, lightly blend around each candle flame.
Using Spun Sugar Distress Ink, lightly blend the edge of the image to bring a little color to the piece.
Use foam tape to adhere the colored image on the scalloped piece. Then adhere to A2-sized card base.
Once done, using Nuvo Crystal Drops, cover the icing sections of the donuts to give them a glazed look. I also added the Crystal Drops on the flames too.
Let clear gloss dry and send with love.
