For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge at Splitcoast (WT328), we were not to use ANY white c/s. This is a special wedding card and I didn’t use any white c/s. I found the outside little ribbon/tulle centerpiece and Mr & Mrs tag on clearance and I added a die cut fancy tag out of metallic gold in between the two for the main item on the outside.
All images Our Daily Bread designs. I used two sizes of the Labels 17 to make a frame thru the ivory shimmer and brushed gold c/s and behind them I stamped the crochet bg in gold ink. I added some wide ribbon before attaching it to my A7 ivory card.
The big surprise w/ this card is the inside so I’d love for you to check out the next pic. I just love paper engineering but this one really tested me, lol!
I gold embossed the greeting on ivory c/s, die cut w/ a Labels 10 and attached it on top of a brushed gold Fancy Tag. On a slightly smaller (than the A7 ivory card) piece of vanilla c/s I placed the pattern I found for the Wedding Cake on a lovely blog I came across. I love popups and I haven’t done one in a long time so I gave it a try. After doing all the cutting and scoring, it took a while to get all the folds going the right way. Then I added the scallop top pieces to the cake along w/ some punched flowers.
I think the happy couple (my DH’s nephew!) will be surprised when they open it!
