Wedding card to order

December 17th, 2010

My Hubby has a friend who likes to ask me to do special cards for his work colleuges. It’s nice to take a break from making card samples for Meiflower and do something completely different. He did not specify what type of card he wanted, so i was left to my own devices.

I love using this Sizzix wedding cake die cut. I think I have got my moneys worth the amount of times i have used it for other cards and a wedding scrapbook i made for my sister in law.

Sizzix wedding cake in a aperture card

I have used a 6 x 6″ square white card.

On the inside of the card, i have stuck a grey and white printed wedding text paper. So you can see the paper through the aperture.

I covered the front of the card with a pretty floral printed paper.  Cut out a aperture, stuck acetate onto the back of the aperture.

I cut out the wedding cake from a irridescent white card and stuck the die shape onto the front of the card.

I have embellished the die cut wedding cake with pretty opague and irridescent flowers. Simple idea of layering a 5 petal, 6 petal and daisy sequins together. Just using the whites and irridescents to complement the cake.

To attach the layered sequin flowers together, i have used a silver brad with a self adhesive gems on top of the brads.

Sometimes when i make a card, i really don’t want to give the card away, this is one of those cards which i wanted to keep. I think this is my all time favourite colour scheme for wedding cards.  I don’t know why pink and grey alway me of weddings

    Did you put anything on the reverse of the acetate or did you just leave the plain side showing of the die cut cake?

    Hi Stephanie,
    I didn’t put anything on the reverse side, but what you can do is stick an identical die on the other side just to make it slightly neater.

    Hi

    I love your card. I have been making cards professionally for about 5 years now and have so many ideas that there is not enough hours in the day. I have been looking for a die for my sizzix machines for ages but can’t quite find the right one. The one you have looks perfect, but I am unable to find the die in any of the shops that I use. I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind telling me where you got yours from.
    Kind regards
    Vicky
