Cherry On Top Donuts Card

by Joanne James9. July 2015 08:00

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary! This week we have a great sketch challenge for you:


This was one of those sketches that the minute I saw it, I knew exactly what I was going to do with those 'flowers' - to me, they looked just like the donuts with a bit taken out that feature on both one of the Cherry on Top DSP stack patterns and the Sprinkles on Top stamp set on page 7 of the annual catalogue. I don't have the latter but am definitely in love with the former, so that's where I was headed for my card this week:

I stayed with the square shape for my card and used a base of Pool Party with mats in Whisper White and Bermuda Bay. I then used another of the patterns from the Cherry on top DSP stack as my top layer and stamped my sentiment from the 'Bravo' stamp set in Watermelon Wonder directly onto the DSP. I then used a long, slim panel of Bermuda Bay, with one corner rounded t echo the shape of the base card, then adhered four little donuts, punched out of the DSP using my 3/4" circle punch, onto the panel using dimensionals. I finished with a double loop of Whisper White baker's twine to complete my card. 

So what do think - is this card sweet to you? Do check out how the other design team members have interpreted this week's sketch as we've all taken a different approach. As for me, I'll be back tomorrow with another project to share. Until then, happy stampin'!

Wow, you're right; what a great idea!  Those bitty donuts are just perfect for this sketch and look so "sweet" lined up ready to enjoy!  PERFECT sentiment for a delicious card!  : )

That's too funny because that was my first thought too - donuts! But I don't own the donut stamp set or the paper, so I am really happy to see your awesome creation!

Super sweet card!  Love that you used the donuts from the designer paper and I also like how you used the panel of Bermuda Bay so they stand out!  Fun card!
