Doughnut Birthday Card

 Today is my husband's (?th) birthday!  Happy Birthday Sweetie!  I wanted to make him a card with a different format because he is unique; his card should be too!  While moving (not cleaning up) my craft supplies I came upon several boxes of Making Memories long card blanks.  These cards were sold at BFC  years ago, but you can easily make your own by cutting two slits in a striped card stock and slipping a solid card stock piece (slightly smaller than the striped one) into the band.  It was easy work to stamp the images and words onto the solid card blank. Then I colored the donut kids in with watercolor pencils and applied Bo Bunny 'Sugar' pearlescent paint (in tube) as frosting, sprinkling it with some fake candy decors.
I turned the Sticko donut box sticker into a dimensional element by adhering pop-up foam stickers and then dusting the donut box sticker with cornstarch before removing the foam sticker backings. This photo shows where I will write my message to the 'birthday boy'. Oh yes, the stamps are from Neat and Tangled.  I only now realize that the 'extra' heads are supposed to be popped up over the other heads in the doughnuts, oh well, next time.  Thanks for visiting this blog....hope it was an enjoyable visit  Please return soon to see the other birthday card I made for my husband.....can't decide which one to give him....HELP!
