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 :)
– 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.
