Yum Donuts!

 Hello Friends

The new Strawberries and Bees release has so many fun dies including two of my favorite things coffee and donuts!!!  I am using both of these items which come on one die called Strawberry Treats 3.

Here is my card for today!


Design Steps:

1.  Cut out all of the pieces using the Strawberry Treats 3 die and the following card stock: red, pink, white, tan, green, dark and brown.  Shade with inks and a fine tip applicator then assemble

2.  Cut a rectangle that will fit all of the donuts in white and then glue the donuts to the white rectangle

3.  For the card base use a white 6 1/4 x 4 1/4, cut a piece of brown dotted DP 6 1/8 x 4 1/8 and also cut 3 Pierced Wide Rectangle Frames 2 in white and one in light brown (which I forgot to put in the picture!)
4.  Glue the brown dotted DP to the white card base.  Glue the donuts to the front of the card as shown.  I added some metal tags spelling yum
5.  Glue the 3 frames together placing the light brown one on top.  Then add dimension tape to the frame and pop it to the card.  Final step is to add the coffee cup with a little dimension tape on one side and glue on the other
