Wedding Bells…with punches

Hello there woohoo is the weekend. I have been so busy this week I shall be glad to have a bit of a rest this weekend only I am work again tomorrow morning for a few hours. I have been cutting and bagging up kits for two evenings now and I am finally getting there for our club on Sunday. There will a lot of lovely ladies attending and I cannot wait, I am baking tomorrow afternoon and my dearest friend and customer Carol has offered to bake an extra cake so we should be happy and calorie full.
Talking about cake I am showing you a card that I loved making, it is for a friend that just got married. I have used strips of card to make the cake layers and punches to add the yummy icing.
wedding 3
Colours  used are So saffron, Very vanilla and Whisper White. The cake layers have been embossed using the Big shot and the top flowers have been made using the Boho Blossom punch. Scrunch the shapes and separate the card stock layers then add on top of each other for a full and pretty looking bloom.
The card blank measures 15cm x 15cm, so saffron dsp layer measures 14cmx14cm 
Another vanilla  layer cut at 12.5x12.5cm and one of so saffron cut at 12cm x 12cm were  added to the previous two. For the cake now
wedding close
The cake used strips of card measuring 4.5cm wide by 8.5cm long for the bottom, then 6.5cm long for the middle tier and 4.5 cm for the top tier. They have all been embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper and Polka Dot embossing folders. The icing was made using the 3/4”circle punch.
I hope you enjoyed my wedding card I shall have to make another one for a wedding we’re  attending in less then 3 weeks.
Thank you for visiting have a fabulous weekend. Till next time xxx
