Seize the Donut! (They go quickly around here.) Show that friend how sweet she is, and how grateful you are, by giving her a donut‐themed thank you card. All of the gratitude, none of the calories!
Plus, there’s a fabulous giveaway from JGoode Designs that includes a Cricut Explore Air™! Details for entering are below the post.
To make donut‐themed thank you card:
This project can be made using an electronic cutter, or with scissors if you don’t have one (yet!). Additionally, you will need:
- cardstock (white, tan, pink)
- tan and pink ink to match cardstock
- glitter cardstock scraps, beads, or other small embellishments for sprinkles
- patterned washi tape or paper strips
- black pen or printer for text
- liquid adhesive
First, cut donut shapes from pink and tan cardstock (photo 1) For this card, my circles are approximately 4″ in diameter, and the inside holes are approximately 1.25″. Cut outside of pink circle into wavy shape for frosting (photo 2). *note: if using an e‐cutter, you can cut this pink wavy circle shape directly.
Use coordinating ink to edge both shapes and create dimension. Layer pink circle onto tan circle to create frosted donut shape, and glue in place. (photo 3)
Sprinkle donuts are the best donuts! Add sprinkles to the donut using tiny glitter cardstock rectangles, beads, confetti, or other small embellishments. (photo 4) Glue each sprinkle in place. I use tweezers to help with this step, since I have fumble‐y fingers. Glue finished donut onto front of 5×7″ side fold white card base as shown in main photo.
Attach strips of washi tape or patterned paper to front and inside of card. Print “Carpe Donut” and inside card sentiment onto white cardstock using home printer or hand write using black pen, and cut to desired size. Trim “Carpe Donut” strip into pennant shape by cutting a triangle from each end, and glue printed phrases on top of patterned strips.
