A Wedding Cake

In need of a wedding card or anniversary card? How about a beautiful wedding cake card? Here is the card we made in May's card workshop: 

 I used aubergine colored cardstock for the base and two other layers of the card, as well as some white design paper. The white paper had a swirl design on it and was shiny in some spots.
The base is a 4 1/4"x 5 1/2" card. The second layer was cut about a 1/4" smaller and stamped with white pigment ink in a floral design. Make sure to let the ink dry completely, which might take a while.
The white layer was cut another 1/2" smaller than the previous and the final layer was 1/4" smaller than the white one.

All layers are adhered on top of each other, except the white one. This one was raised with foam dots!
 The cake is created from three rectangular pieces of white design paper, three pieces of white scalloped cardstock (edged with a little grey ink) and each just a bit wider than the cake piece. Start to adhere the bottom cake layer and ad scalloped edge to it, then follow with second and third layer. The bling swirl comes in a set of multiples form Close To My Heart and is placed in the center of the cake (starting in the second cake layer).
The flowers are punched from white cardstock and vellum. I adhered the vellum on top of the cardstock with a glue dot. Bend the vellum pedals up to make the flowers look more dimensional. Finish each flower with a little rhinestone and place them all over the cake. A total of 7 flowers have been used for this card.

Stay tuned...more is coming....
