Wedding Card

I am lucky if I go to a wedding once every five years. Wedding cards are not in my stash for that reason. I do have a couple of cards which in a pinch would work.

However, I have been invited to a wedding next week and wanted to make a wedding specific card. Since the Silhouette  Plus Forum is having a card challenge for this month using  what was once a free birthday cake shape I thought I would make a wedding card.

I deleted the cake decorations and cut off the birthday candle. Then turned the shape into a card. I love how easy it is to turn just about any shape into a card using Studio.

Don't tell anyone but not once but twice I put the card base in the embossing folder wrong. So the card is embossed on the inside. Also I put the ink on the wrong side of the folder. I had wanted the embossed part to be  Pearl blue not the background. That is all right as this is not a traditional wedding so the cake on the card does not have to be traditional.

The bride and groom cake top was free clip art. I did a trace and cut. The base and heart is heat embossed with glitter embossing powder. It doesn't really show up in the photo. I mirrored the clip art so they are also on a plain white cake on the inside.

I had some things I wanted to try with Gesso and heat embossing but decided to go this route. I have other projects I want to do. Also I don't really know the couple all that well.

Thank you for stopping by. Do come back. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again.
