Wedding Cake Card

Less is More Challenge 72 - Something Shiny

Not had much time to blog lately as last weekend we were up north for my cousin's wedding and hubby was doing the photo's with me helping, after the main photos were done I had 5 minutes to freshen up and change then back down to enjoy a lovely meal and dance after.  Still couldn't wear heels after hurting my foot the week before (all your kind words were appreciated, thankfully nothing was broken , but it has taken a while to walk normally and its still a bit stiff) I had to wear flats to the dance and this meant I had to rethink my outfit, so the white linen trousers came to the rescue!

Anyway onto my card.  Not sure about you but when I get asked to make two cards for the same person , on the same colour scheme ,I panic that I wont be able to come up with two different cards. I finally did. then I realised I needed a third from myself!! I will post the other two later. Incidentally , these were for a friend, not my cousin.

The first one I did had to tie in with the invites so that was easy then for the 2nd one, having seen a picture of her cake I decided to replicate the cake in card.

First I created the 3 tier cake in shimmer card then did a diagonal half of each tier in the zebra paper, then added a strip of silver mirri card ( not shown very well in photo) between the two halves, added in a few punched flowers with some shiny jewels, a few hearts punched from glitter card stuck to some wire coming out the top of the cake and it was done.the sentiment was done on the pc and the cake placed on 3d pads.

I am entering this into the Less is More challenge something shiny .

Thanks for looking K x
