Anything Goes - C.A.S.E A Card Friday #18-2016

Today's C.A.S.E A Card Challenge:


I must have been hungry when I looked at the inspiration piece as I decided my grouping would be of donuts!  Yum!  The donut is a cut file from the Silhouette Store which I converted to print only.  I colored various donuts with chocolate and vanilla "frosting" and then added some glaze and sprinkles, too.  I used Stampin' Up colors to fill; Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla and then miscellaneous SU colors for the sprinkles. 

I wanted some donuts to appear eaten so I brought in a scalloped circle shape and used that to "subtract" bites so we have donuts in various stages of consumption.  Then I resized them to an appropriate size for the card and situated them in a way pleasing to my eye.  Then I added "crumbs" using SU's digital French Foliage stamp, colored in Baked Brown Sugar.  I added the sentiment in Early Espresso using the Benguiat Frisky ATT.  I continued the sentiment inside and paired it with Blackjack font.

I matted the Whisper White panels on Very Vanilla mats before attaching them to a Baked Brown Sugar card base.

My final touch was to color the glaze, sprinkles and icing with a Clear Gelly Roll Glaze Pen by Sakura.  These donuts look good enough to eat in real life!!  If I wasn't hungry before, I sure am now!

So, to compare and contrast to the inspiration.  I used the same size panel on the front, but I matted mine.  I substituted donuts for the flowers, but kept the grouping.  Rather than the water coloring the background, I used "crumbs" as a backdrop.  I placed the sentiment in the same place.

  1. Great card. I have been thinking of doughnuts all week, so I take this as a sign that I might need to make Ina a part of my healthy eating today. Lol

    1. It a, not Ina. My typing on my IPad is not the best.

  2. That sounds like a very good plan...I just might join you!
