Donut Love

My brother-in-law and his fiancé decided at the last minute to get married on Halloween (that would be last night!), so I wanted to make a fast & fun card for them.

They got engaged at their favorite Gourmet Donut food truck—which I think is just so cute & romantic—so I made a one-of-a-kind wedding card:

I designed the donut card in SCAL, which was really easy there are 3 parts; a front, then inside message section, and the base card. I cut it on a light brown linen cardstock, and distressed the edges with TH Antique Linen ink.

For the front, I added "glaze" with Glossy Accents and plopped on some glass beads, plus a couple of diamond gemstones. (The light is reflecting on the beads in this photo; they don't necessarily shine that much!)

The sentiment is from a LOTV set, and I heat-embossed it in gold onto clear plastic. I used scrap plastic, but it did warp quite a bit. So I taped it down onto the card, heated it again and then it flattened nicely.

I've sent them cards before, and they like "different", so hopefully they'll like this!
