I made the most of my scrap of gold glitter paper and finished with an Impression Obsession Love Songs 1 Sentiment and a vintage A Muse Bride & Groom (I wish a current stamp company would make a similar silhouette).
The Challenge Theme at Shopping Our Stash is Always a Bridesmaid (make a card featuring a dress or dress form). It just so happens, I need another wedding card for my stash, so this was the perfect opportunity.
I started with a large piece of textured designer wrapping paper and cut three two-inch strips. I trimmed each strip down a bit as I assembled my cake to get the right balance.
I used a corner rounder on the top of each layer and attached the layers to a gray cardstock base. Next, I used three sizes of paper flowers and some Eyelet Outlet Blue Flower Gems to decorate my cake.
This month's Mix-It-Up Challenge at Essentials by Ellen is a bit extra-challenging for me because I don't have a lot of Penny Black stamps in my stash. However, the one I do have is a well-loved and often used stamp called Bridal March. It is perfect for quick wedding cards.
I stamped the bride in black ink, clear embossed and then painted with pink shimmer paint from Zig Pearlescent Watercolor Jewel Box.
I used a Spectrum Noir DR3 Marker to add red highlights to the image featuring colors from Retro Rubber Feel the Love Challenge.
