Piece of Cake Wedding Card!

I really feel bad for anyone who was looking forward to a big gathering for their wedding this year in the midst of this pandemic. How awful to have made plans over the last year and then not be able to have your event the way you envisioned it. However, people will still be getting married. And who wants to run to the store right now? Having a handmade Wedding card on hand keeps you prepared.

This wonderful Wedding card is made with the Stampin’ Up!® Piece of Cake stamp set. This set is very versatile because there are 6 different cake stamps. Check it out here.

Measurements: Whisper White Card stock (CS): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches and 4 x 2 inches for stamping the cake; Purple Posy CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches; Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5 x 3 3/4 inches; and Silver Foil: 4 x 2 inches.

Using Memento Black Ink stamp the cake on the bottom of the 4 x 2 inch Whisper White CS. Now stamp the floral cake topper on the other end. You will need room to use the Cake Builder Punch in a minute.

I used Stampin’ Write Markers in Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Old Olive and Shaded Spruce to color the cake and flowers. I used the Highland Heather Stampin’ Write Marker to color the two tiny flowers located on the cake itself.

I colored the icing decorations in Gorgeous Grape. I left some of the flowers on the cake topper white because I thought they looked like daisies. The leaves are colored in Old Olive with a small amount of Shaded Spruce.

Use the Cake Builder punch to punch out the cake. You will also get a cake stand which we are not going to use. You could save the Whisper White cake stand for another card.

You will need to fussy cut the floral cake topper. It is so small!

Use the Cake Builder Punch to punch a cake stand out of the Silver Foil. Set the pieces of the cake aside for now.

Now for a trick! Hold the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Purple Posy with the 5 x 3 3/4 inch Perennial Essence DSP as shown. You may use some temporary adhesive if you wish.

Use the 2 inch Circle Punch to punch a circle in the upper left quadrant. Do not punch too close to the left edge of the card because the cake will be adhered there.

Here’s the trick! Now separate the DSP from the Purple Posy CS. Use the 2 1/4 inch Circle Punch to enlarge the circle on the DSP. This allows the Purple Posy to show through the DSP on the inside of the circle and be perfectly aligned!

Place the Purple Posy and Perennial Essence DSP pieces together and lay them on the front panel of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White CS card base. This will show you where to stamp the sentiment.

I also placed the cake and stand on the card temporarily to help with the placement of the sentiment. The “Happy Wedding Day” sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink in the right upper portion of the circle.

I recommend using a lot of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the Perennial Essence DSP.

Carefully adhere the Perennial Essence DSP to the Purple Posy CS. Next, use your Bone Folder to help get a nice crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch score line on the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White CS card base.

Adhere the Purple Posy and DSP panel to the front of the Whisper White CS card base, keeping in mind how you want the sentiment to look.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to all of the cake pieces. Adhere the cake first making sure there is space for the cake topper. Now adhere the cake topper and finally the cake stand.

Tie a bow and add it to the cake stand with a Mini Glue Dot. I used the Metallic Edged Ribbon in silver. (For help with tying a bow, refer to the video in this blog here.

Now for some Bling! I added the Rhinestone Basic Jewels sort of scattered on the Perennial Essence DSP. I placed 2 small Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the center of the flowers on the cake.

And Viola! You have a beautiful Wedding card ready to go! I think I went a little crazy with the Bling! Oh, well. It makes for a very sparkly card!

Thanks again for visiting my blog. I have so much fun creating cards and making a blog post. I hope you try some of the cards. Even if you do not have the specific paper or stamp set, perhaps my cards can be an inspiration for one of your own! Stay safe and healthy!

Sparkly Wedding Cake Card

Boy, what a day! I was planning on finishing the blog about this gorgeous, sparkly wedding cake card, but my youngest son had a Science Fair paper and display board to do. So we spent the whole day doing that! Now, I am going to get this out to you!

This beautiful wedding card is not hard to make as you will see by the following steps. This is the 3rd in a series of 3 cards made with Stampin’ Up!’s Piece of Cake stamp set.

Measurements: Whisper White card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches folded at 4 1/4 inches; Petal Pink 5 x 2 1/4 inches, Floral Romance Designer Series Paper (DSP) 4 3/4 x 2 inches, Fresh Fig 3 x 2 1/4 inches and Whisper White 2 3/4 x 2 inches.

Some of the other products you will need are Memento Ink, Fresh Fig Ink and the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker.

First stamp the cake platter in Memento ink onto the bottom half of the 2 3/4 x 2 inch piece of Whisper White.

Next stamp the cake in Fresh Fig onto the platter. As you can see, some ink got on my block. Fortunately it did not get on my cardstock!

Now add the little floral bouquet in Fresh Fig on top of the cake.

Use the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker to color the roses and rosebuds, as well as the center of the daisy-like flowers.

Adhere the colored cake onto the 3 x 2 1/4 inch piece of Fresh Fig. Set aside.

The Floral Romance Designer series paper has this piece of Vellum in the pack. Isn’t it gorgeous? Vellum is a special type of paper that is more translucent. As such, the adhesive will often show through to the other side. Tip: I used a very thin line of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue around the edges.

When adhering the Vellum to the piece of Petal Pink cardstock, I gently massaged the glue into an even layer so that it did not show through.

Lay the two completed card pieces onto the Whisper White card base without using any adhesive. This is to help with placement of the sentiment. Stamp the sentiment “Mr & Mrs” in Memento Ink to the lower right hand corner of the card front.

Now use adhesive to adhere the Petal Pink piece to the card front.

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the cake piece, adhere it to the middle of the card front.

This is a very pretty wedding card. But we are not finished yet. We are going to add some bling!

These sparkly pink flowers and sequins are from the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins in the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog. In order to transfer them easily, I use the Paper Piercing Tool.

First I added one flower sequin in the center, then one on either side of it to continue the garland.

Next I added 3 sequins. The 3rd sequin is on the little pink flower.

And Viola! You have made a wonderful, gorgeous and sparkly wedding card! Now to get invited to a wedding!

I am heading out of town for the rest of the week to attend a medical conference. You may or may not know that I am a retired Family Medicine Physician.
