Patterned Paper Donuts
Happy Friday crafty friends! Lauren here, sharing a fun card with one of the plaid paper from the Autumn Foliage paper pack. These donuts were made with a very simple pen, paper and scissors technique! No dies were required. I did use a small circle die for the centers, but you could use a circle punch or even fussy cut the center if you wanted. I made quick video to share the process!
I used a jar of glitter glaze to trace circles onto a piece of aqua pigment paper with a waterproof black pen. I then traced more circles onto the back of the plaid paper and then hand-drew the "icing", using the circles as a sizing guide. I used scissors to fussy cut the icing lines, and used a circle die to cut out the centers. I used one of the die cut centers to trace the smaller circle inside the donut, and then used brown aqua pigment and a water brush to paint the donuts. I popped the plaid icing up with foam tape and used the pen to draw little sprinkles. I stamped the sentiment from the September stamp of the month with Raven detail ink onto a piece of Alabaster yardstick, and cut it into a strip, backing it with another strip of Raven cardstock, and adhering it to the card front. I glued the whole card front to a panel of Raven cardstock to finish it off.
