Another week, and another card for sharing. I always seem to be rushing to make a wedding card. I get invites to the wedding, then wait to create the card. Now I will have a card made, ready for the next wedding I attend.
This week at ICS we were given this sketch to use:
My first thought when I saw this sketch was a 3 tiered cake. Hmm...should I make a birthday card? No, a wedding cake has tiers, so I decided to make a wedding card. I had some stamps I was wanting to try, so I stamped this Hanglar couple to see how they would look on top of the cake. They were perfect as the topper! I had some DCWV paper the I used for the background on this card. The four corners had a swirly shape that I liked, so I cut them off and trimmed around the edges. I used pop dots to pop up the corners... I took my copic markers and colored her wedding dress with some very light blues and grays, then I used some glitter on the bride and groom. The three layer cake was a set of matching light turquoise papers and I used liquid pearls to "ice" the edges of the cake. And what wedding cake doesn't have flowers? I found these small white flowers in my stash and sprayed them with a turquoise glimmer mist. In the center of each flower I place a silver liquid pearl. Here is my card...ready to use. (I just noticed the bottom of the card looks crooked. It isn't that way in person. I think it must the angle I used to shoot the card.)
