A White Wedding


Today I am posting a project on my blog that I previously posted on the KnK Design Team blog in case you haven’t seen it and also so the files will be included into my archives for the future.

I have a family wedding approaching so today I have a wedding card to share with you, I chose a wedding cake design and although it is an all white card I picked card and paper with lots of shine and texture. I have included the cut files I created for today’s card at the end of the post if you would like to re-create it :)

The picture below shows all of the pieces you will need to cut with your chosen cutting machine, I cut mine with Make the Cut and my Zing:

– 1 sheet of A4/letter sized card scored down the middle
– 1 copy of swirly frame 9 & backing layer (cut file below) sized to fit the folded A4/letter card base
– 1 rectangle panel and backing layer to fit inside the swirly frame
– 1 copy of the wedding cake and stand (cut file below)
– Several copies of the flower and leaf (cut file below)


I cut my flowers and leaves from vellum to make them look delicate, I shaped each petal with an embossing stylus on a soft mat which encourages them to curl upwards:


Once I have shaped the petals I run the stylus around the center of the flower and it magically cups the flower:


To finish my flowers, I tuck one of the flower layers inside another with a little wet glue then pop a flat backed pearl in the middle. I ran my embossing stylus down the center of each leaf and glued them behind some of my flowers:


I stuck my swirly frame to it’s backing layer with some tape in the middle and some wet glue at the edges. For the top layer of my rectangle panel I chose a patterned vellum, I attached it to its backing layer with a small piece of double sided tape being careful to place it behind where the cake will sit then I stitched the 2 layers together:


I folded my card base and glued all of my wedding cake pieces together, I chose some shimmery card to represent the ribbon sections:


As all of my elements were prepared, my card came together in moments. I attached my 2 panels to the card base with lots of 3d foam tape then I attached my cake directly to the rectangle panel as the flowers give a lot of dimension. Here’s how my cards looks when it is finished:


Although this is an all white card, I hope this close up shows how using different textures, translucency and shimmer can add a great deal of interest to a project.

    Hi Bird. I love everything about this card , the white on white with texture and shine, the swirly frame, and the details of the pierced cake stand and the ribbons on the cake! The velum flowers are the beautiful finishing touch! It is perfection and I so appreciate the cut files.I love to tweak designs, but I would recreate this one exactly as it is. Thank you so much!
