This wedding card I designed I wanted to make it beautiful and sparkly since it was for my oldest friend! I used white mainly and purple as an accent colour since its her fav colour and wedding colour. I forgot to take pictures until I was already on route. Wedding Card with Decorated EnvelopeFor the cake I sketched out a tiered wedding cake shape, cut it out and traced it onto white card stock. Once I cut it out I texture embossed it and painted it with Shimmer Paint. This gave it the pearlized look. I should probably done a second coat but whateves.

To complete the cake I layered pearl strands along each tier and topped it with a small heart punched out of Silver Glimmer Paper. Love that paper!! Wedding Cake Card Close UpMy card stock layers bottom to top:
Entire card is Shimmery White Cardstock
Wisteria Wonder Cardstock
Shimmery White Cardstock
White Velum

I popped up some layers with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give more dimension.

For the cluster I used Vintage Faceted Buttons, Flower Trim, Pearl Basic Jewel, Silver Glass Glitter, and a Jewelry Tag Punched, layered and stamped with Mr. & Mrs.

The Flower Trim was actually vanilla colour so I sprayed it with my Stampin’ Spritzer using alcohol and Wisteria Wonder Ink Refill. Handmade Wedding Card ClusterI then heat embossed the sentiment ‘For the Newlyweds’ from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set in silver on a velum punched oval. Silver Heat EmbossingInside I stamped Congratulations with the Curly Cute stamp set (not shown).

For The envelope I stamped the Swallowtail Butterfly Stamp partially off set in Wisteria Wonder and added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the wings. Looked gorgeous.

I love how this card turned out and I hope you do too. Some of the items I used have been retired but you can always substitute. Handmade Wedding Card

    Hi Sarah. Thanks for that handy step by step on your lovely card. I found the instructions rather useless as I already own said card.

    Your friend and sorta feel like family member
