Welcome to our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenges. This week’s inspiration challenge is a printed donut towel!
ICE CREAM SWIRL & THOUGHTUL EXPRESSIONS
I looked and looked for circles that I could use to make some donut shapes. Then I saw the medallion in Thoughtful Expressions and thought it would be PERFECT for donut frosting using the Lighter Than Air Designer Paper!!! What do you think?
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Flirty Flamingo cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Pool Party cardstock was embossed with the Basics Embossing Folder (Online Exclusive) and adhered to the front.
- Two large Stylish Shapes Circles were cut from Crumb Cake cardstock.
- Two sized down Thoughtful Expressions medallions were cut from Lighter Than Air Designer Paper. Both circles/medallions were adhered together, then cut with the next to smallest Stylish Shapes Circle. They were adhered to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals overlapping each other.
- The greeting from Ice Cream Swirl was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Basic White cardstock, then cut with the Thoughtful Expressions label die.
- Some Rainbow Adhesive Backed Dots were added to the label and background.
I sent this off to my granddaughter earlier this month for Valentine’s Day…she will love it! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
