Hello everyone! This week on the Cricut Circle Blog - the Challenge is to "handcraft a flower using your Cricut and/or Cuttlebug machine and use it on your project." This was perfect timing for me as I needed to make this wedding card for a friend of mine.
The brown cardstock is from Paper Trey Ink. The shimmery gold cardstock (which is a little hard to see in my picture) is from DCWV - Le Creme paperstack. The border punch is EK Success ~ Dotted Scallop.
The wedding cake I made by cutting two rectangles and stacking them one on top of the other. I rounded the top two corners of each layer with my corner rounder for the softer look. And then I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder to give them some texture.
There are 3 kinds of flowers on this cake. The 3 large white flowers on the bottom layer are from the Mother's Day Boquet ~ Cricut cartridge, with a pearl accented mini flower sticker (from Michaels) added in the middle. The other 2 large flowers in the bottom layer are from the Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Art ~ Cricut cartridge (I cut the flourishes off the sides to only leave the flower), I also used some Stickles to give them some bling and added the pearl accented mini flower to these as well. On the top layer of the cake I cut the same large white flowers (but in a smaller size) and then added 3 pearl accented mini flower stickers.
For the cake topper, I cut the most beautiful wedding couple from the Sweethearts ~ Cricut cartridge. And off to the left you can see the sweet sentiment of "Together Forever" which is from the My Pink Stamper ~ Love-alicious stamp set.
It's a fairly quick and simple card. Hope you like it :)
Until next time...
