Digital Tuesday Challenge #8: Wedding

This week at the Digital Tuesday Challenge the theme is WEDDINGS! I know that wedding season is just around the corner, so now would be the perfect time to get a wedding card or two done for your stash basket (or where-ever you keep your cards). The prize this week is sponsored by Dustin Pike (who is having a spectacular Memorial Day sale...go take a peek at what he's got to offer!). Now, ONTO the card...

I have absolutely fallen in love with these Love Birds from the Digital Stamp Oasis...they are one of my all time fav digi images... and I thought they would look adorable as a wedding cake topper...so that's what I did, I made a tent card into a wedding cake and topped it with the Love Birds!

I tend to frequent the blog Cake Wrecks quite a bit, and that really was my inspiration for this card...if you want a giggle, take a look around Mon-Sat, you'll giggle at your blog hostess and her bits of Cake Wreckiness, but SUNDAY is the PREEEEEMO (top notch, top bakeries) cakes in all their sugary glory.

ANYWHO.... the Sunday cakes were the inspiration for the cake card after I decided the Love Birds should grace the top. I colored and cut out the birds, but I left a little extra paper on their branch so I could attach it to my nestabilities frame (regular oval and a scalloped oval). I attached the Love Birds to that and then attached the whole thing to my cake. I then wanted to make this look like a REAL wedding cake and had flowers cascade down the side...in wedding colors (this cake card is actually being given this weekend, so I made it in their wedding colors! Don't 'cha just love it when a plan comes together? :D) I punched out the little flowers and then I used my Copics and gave them all just a tad bit of depth before I added the rhinestone to the center. This card was super easy to put together and I totally love how it came out, I hope you do to...so glad you could join me today! Be sure to check out the other DT members projects, they are some really neat ones this week!
