Hi there!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards spending some quality time with you today!

These doughnuts look good enough to eat, don't they?  Alas, they're Doughnut Brads so you can't eat them, but you can sure make some cute projects with them!

And, even if I do say so myself, I think this card is cute!  I used a card base I purchased in the Silhouette store as I wanted my card to have that eyelet scallop across the bottom to play off the doughnuts.

From there, I added the eyelet circle to the middle and cut the center hole from the front of the card.  So, you're actually peeking into the card to see that full plate of doughnuts.

I created a mat using digital patterned paper from the Puppy Love kit from NitWit Collections.  The greeting was made using the CK Frosting font.  I printed it on a banner with stitching across the top and bottom and matted it on a larger mat of rose.

When you open the card you see the doughnuts on the plate cut from Glossy White paper (same as photo paper) and the sentiment, which I hope makes you smile.

The sentiment was typed using the same font using the text to path option in my Silhouette.

I have a curious question for you.  When you type what is sitting on the plate, do you spell it as donuts or doughnuts?  I normally type the first version, but because it was listed the other way in the Eyelet Outlet store, and because that actually is the correct version, I used that.  But it was a struggle, LOL
