Skipping Stones Designs: Week 3

Skipping Stones Donut Shaped Front

Skipping Stones Donut Shaped Inside

I just love the way this card turned out! I wanted to make a donut shaped card, but I had no idea it would be so easy. I used my Spellbinders™ Petite Ovals, both the large and small sets. The chocolate “frosting” got a hand cut bottom edge, after I die cut the oval. To add sprinkles, I used my Versamark Watermark pen to draw lines and added embossing powder. Too cute! Kind of messy, as the powder got everywhere. This is one situation where I would recommend using an Embossing Buddy (to remove static).

The newly released set, Birthday Donuts, from Skipping Stones Designs, that was used on this card, is SO cute! I love the funny sentiments and fabulously drawn images!! And its perfect for masculine or feminine cards!! Can’t say that too often about a stamp set!
