Donut Birthday Card

Operation Write Home posted a card like this done by Laura C. on Facebook.  I thought it was really cute, went online, found a free clip art donut image and made the card using Hallmark card making software.

Using a swirl stamp and some ColorBox chalk ink, I added some dimension to the background paper.  I also used a Promarker to put the shadow underneath the donut so it wouldn't just be floating on the white background.  There is some doodling around the borders done with Stampin' Up markers and Gelly Roll pens.

The donut image is pop dotted off the card face for some added dimension.  I also used a metallic gelly roll pen to put some sparkle on the sprinkles on the donut.

I totally agree with the inside sentiment!

I use the Google Image Search for items I want to use. This one was found by searching for "donut clip art".
