Hello crafters,

Today I made a clean and simple card to share. I used two stamp sets from the great Hedgehog Hollow collection. They are “Sweet Sentiments” and “You Bake Me Happy”. I think it is great when a company creates stamp sets that work so well together!

The first step was to cut the card stock layers. My card is a standard A-2 card with a layer one. Next I stamped the sentiment onto the lower right corner of the white layer one. The next step was to attach the layer one to the card base.

I now decided on three donuts for the card and set about stamping them using the different icing layers and toppings for the donuts. I made three because odd numbers of items are always more pleasing to the eye.

The next step was to arrange the donuts in the most pleasing design and attach to the card. The donut farthest to the right was attached using foam tape to give the card a bit of dimension. I felt the card needed something more so I put a thin frame onto the card layer enclosing the donuts and sentiment. I felt this added focus but still allowed the card to look clean and simple. I also added three enamel dots in a matching green to finish the card front.

I believe this design can be adapted to many stamp sets and sentiments. I encourage you to create your own cards with these great stamp sets! Enjoy!
