This is Shruti here. I made a fun card today and I thought I'd share a step by step tutorial on how I did it. When I was halfway through this card I thought it kind of looked like a donut. hehehe.. What do you guys think?
Start by using a white cardstock. I used the Hero Arts Water Color paper in Bright White for the card as I knew I would be distressing it later.
Fold it into half
Use a circle cutter to cut out a perfect circle. I used the Martha Stewart circle cutter at 4 7/8 inches to cut out a perfect circle. I love my MS circle cutter and am obsessed with it!!!!
Distress it with Mustard Seed on the outer edges of the circle.
Then cut out a small circle (2 7/8th inches) with the cutter from the center and distress it with Victorian Velvet distress ink. I use a double sided tape to hold the card down while distressing.
Doesn't it not look like a donut now? :P
Cut out a piece of acetate sheet to cover the hole in the center with a double sided sticky red tape.
Now, emboss the jar image on a pattern paper with white embossing powder.
Tie a twine around its neck and glue it down using a red sticky tape.
Punch out little hearts..
and fill the jar with them.
I dipped the edges of the card in a white ink pad.
Finish it by tying a ribbon on top and of course a butterfly *winks*
There you have it.. a donut card for your loved one With lotsa love! ;)
