Who doesn’t like donuts? Ok, maybe it’s just me that love these fried morsels! Today’s card features the new Pastry Pals-Exclusive Kit from LDRS Creative. It is filled with yummy goodness. Besides that it is a great value. I will be creating an edge to edge shaker card. If you are unfamiliar with this there are plenty of YouTube tutorials on the process.
I am using the stencils, the Pastry Pals Stamps & Dies, the Offset Slimline Stackables, and the A2 Diagonal Stitched Card Toppers. All products will be linked below at no additional cost to you. So, on to the card making.
- I used the 4.25 x 5.5″ stitched card topper to cut the base.
- Next I cut another piece of white cardstock at 4.25 x 5.5″ to do the ink blending. This will be cut down later.
- I used Distress Oxide Inks (Festive Berries, Iced Marmalade and Wilted Violet) to do the ink blending. Then used the next smaller stitched card topper to cut the area I wanted.
- I then used the Layered Circle Stencils with white pigment dye. You can use any of the stencils just figure out where you want to ink your circles. With the first stencil I did a light layer of white ink. With the second stencil I did two heavier passes.
- Allow the ink to dry completely.
- Next, I cut a piece of acetate, I used some packaging acetate I had on hand. You will cut the acetate about 1/2″ bigger than the inked panel.
- Now lay down your acetate on a clean surface, place your ink blended panel in the center.
- Add 1/4″ double sided adhesive to all 4 sides of the panel.
- Remove only THREE sides of the adhesive backer. Leave the top side open.
- Fold over the the acetate and adhere them to the three sides.
- Now, with the top being open, add your sequins or glitter. You can use whatever shaker element you want but it is better to use flatter elements like glitter or sequins.
- Once you have the amount you want, remove the adhesive backer from the top side and press the acetate down.
- Set this panel aside and we will now cut the stackable elements. I used scrap pieces of white card stock. Figure out how you want these to lay on your card front. You should have two pieces. I wanted the donuts to appear to roll down the card. I used the wavy stackable.
- Make sure they fit your inked, shaker element. Then I glued them together and cut them with the same die I used for the inked panel.
- I took the stackable element, placed it in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment that reads “I Like the Way You Roll”. I colored in the little hearts and added some Glosy Accents.
- Now on to the donuts. I stamped and die cut three of the donuts. I used colored pencils to color them.
- Figure out how you want the donuts to roll. Glue down the area that will be on top of the stackable.
- Once the glue is dry, add double sided foam tape to the back of the stackable/donut panel.
- Glue down your shaker element to your A2 Stitched panel.
- Next, remove the foam tape backer from the donut/stackable piece. Add a little glue to the foam. This allows a little wiggle room when positioning it.
- Place this on top of your inked shaker element.
- I added some Glossy Accents, a few dots on the donuts.
