In the midst of all this Halloween flurry . . . all of a sudden a Wedding!!!!!  So I made this card last night.  I've seen several versions of this wedding cake here and there, so I just had to try one.


Stamp Set:
* Itty Bitty Banners
* Petite Pairs (inside)

* Naturals White card stock (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"; 3" x 2"; 2" x 1-1/2"; 1" x 1"; scraps for banner and flowers) 
* Inside (see below):  Naturals White card stock (5-3/8" x 4-1/8"; 4" x 2-3/4")

* VersaMark pad
* VersaMark pen

Accessories and Tools:
* Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
* Stripes Embossing Folder
* Elegant Lines Embossing Folder
* Bitty Banners Framelits Die
* Corner Rounder Punch
* 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon (Very Vanilla)
* Boho Blossoms Punch
* Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack
* Crystal Effects
* Pearl Basic Jewels
* Pewter Embossing Powder
* Heat Tool
* Bone Folder
* Adhesives: Glue Dots; Multipurpose Liquid Glue; Stampin' Dimensionals; Sticky Strip


1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card.

2. Emboss front of card with Stripes embossing folder.

3. Trim two top corners of 3" x 2" card stock, 2" x 1-1/2" card stock, and 1" x 1" card stock with corner rounder punch.  Line up in embossing folder to resemble a 3-tiered cake.  Crank through Big Shot to emboss.

4. Trace all lines of embossed design with Crystal Effects and insert a corresponding sized Pearl into each circle in the design.  Set aside to dry.  Wrap ribbon around from front to back and adhere on back near bottom of each piece.

5. Place two Stampin' Dimensionals, one on top of the other, in each corner, and at the top and bottom center on the back of the largest (bottom) tier; adhere to front of card.  Place one Stampin' Dimensional in each corner, and at the top and bottom center on the back of the middle tier; adhere above and slightly tucked under bottom tier.  Use Glue Dots to adhere top tier directly to card, above and slightly under middle tier.

6. Punch one middle sized flower from Boho Blossoms; two of the smallest flower from Boho Blossoms; and 3 of the round scalloped shape from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch set.  Make one flower by layering all three shapes; make a second flower by layering two smallest shapes.  Use Glue Dots to adhere smallest flower to ribbon on top tier, two-layered flower to ribbon on middle tier, and three-layered flower to bottom tier.

7. Stamp "congratulations" on scrap of card stock with VersaMark pad; emboss with Pewter embossing powder.  Punch out with Bitty Banners Framelits die.  Use Bone Folder to soften card stock (use it like you would use scissors to curl ribbon), scrunch together, and adhere to front of card with Glue Dots.

8. For inside of card, use VersaMark pad to stamp Best Wishes and to the new Mr. and Mrs. on 5-3/8" x 4-1/8" card stock; add three dots between two stamps with VersaMark pen.  Emboss with Pewter embossing powder.  Adhere to inside of card.

9. For the gift card holder, I used a retired punch to cut half-moon slits about 1/4" away from each side and bottom of 4" x 2-3/4" cardstock.  I then slipped the gift card into the tabs and used Sticky Strip to adhere the card stock to the inside of the card.

That's it.  My gift for the wedding tomorrow.  Hope you all enjoy the card!
