Project - Pink wedding cake card

This sophisticated Wedding card is simply made with downloadables.

The card blank here is made with white Stardream card (which is really an ivory colour). This one is A4 folded to A5 - you can crease the card accurately using an M & F board.

Next, print the medium pink wedding cake background onto stardream white paper. Cut a strip measuring around 6cm wide x 21cm (to fit the height of the card blank). Here the paper has been wrapped around the spine of the card - this provides a really neat finish. To do this apply strips of double-sided tape to the back of the paper. With the card blank folded flat, carefully apply the wedding print paper so that it overlaps the fold by about a centimetre and smooth into place.

Print this onto Stardream white card and cut out one of the pink Wedding cake motifs. Mount it with double-sided tape onto a larger piece of silver metallic card then trim it to leave a 2-3mm border.

To attach the heart charm to the bottom, make a small hole around 3mm from the bottom of the Wedding cake piece with an 1/8" hole punch (the smallest one in the set of 3 plier punches). The heart is simply tied using a piece of elasticated cord with the knot at the back - I used a little Aleene's tacky glue to keep the knot in place to stop it working its way round to the front. Make a little bow using further silver elasticated cord and stick into place with a little blob of Aleene's. Once the glue's dry, fix the panel into place on the card using sticky pads or fun foam with double-sided tape.

The card is finished by adding elasticated cord to the spine of the card (which would fix an insert into place). Tie it in a bow and add silver pearl beads to the ends before tying off and trimming to the required length.
