It's National Donut Day!
National Doughnut (Donut) Day originally began as a way to celebrate the female volunteers for the Salvation Army who were serving doughnuts to soldiers in the 1st World War. These ladies were known as "The Doughnut Lassies".
Today it has become a national phenomenon, with many of the country’s top donut shops offering special deals (or free donuts) to commemorate the holiday!
*(see link below for deals).ReNae here, with the FotoBella Design Team, and since I love making cards, and I love donuts, I decided to try my hand at a Donut Card! These cards were fun and easy to make, and the paper I chose from Stamperia made the Donut Cards look great!
These papers are all so beautiful and the beautiful
was perfect to use as the icing on the Donuts!
I used it on the inside sentiment too!
Here are my finished Donut Cards
These were so fun to make I made TWO!
Look at how perfect the pink Stamperia paper is for the icing!
To make my Donut Cards:
I used a 4" Circle Die, a small
1 1/2"circle die for the Donut hole, and a 3 1/2"
Scalloped Circle Die for the icing.
I cut 2 donut shapes, and 1 icing shape for each card.
Stamped the sentiments with a stamp from my stash,
and glued the two pieces together.
I adhered seed beads on the icing
and punched a "bite" from the side of the donut
with a scalloped circle punch.
Arent they adorable? They look good enough to eat!
