Elegant Wedding Pop up Card

Welcome to Layers of Color's Cake Decorating Party. I'm so glad you can join us as we feature different cake-inspired projects today. Make sure you stop by the Layers of Color blog for more info about a special giveaway.

I decided to make a pop up wedding card for today's hop. This is a very special card because I've spent more time on this than any card I've ever made. And I enjoyed every minute of it. Each of my 3 young daughters is trying to convince me that I should save it for when she gets married :-). I told them I don't think it will last that long.

I used the new Webster's Pages papers to cover both the front and inside of the card. You can see how much I love that vintage heart image from Fleur Heart. The butterfly is from Butterfly Collector. The bottom scallops were die cut using Spellbinders Borderabilities dies.

Here is the inside with the popped up wedding card. I die cut Spellbinders Labels Four in three different sizes, then stamped them with images from the Merci Bouquet set. The cake stand is from Her Majesty's Urns set.

This is the side view so you can see how I popped it. The sentiment is from Sent With Love and die cut with Spellbinder's brand new Fancy Tags Three.

And here's a close up where you can see the glitter on the flowers. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
