Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - I Do, I Do, I Do

At Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we are celebrating the June bride with our challenge ofI Do, I Do, I Do!! We are offering this fabulous prize from:

Pop on over to their website by clicking on the picture and check out all their goodies.

For my project I decided to create a wedding cake with my CC Design bride. I used white cardstock and cut 3 strips, 1 x 3", 1 x 2", and 1 x 1". I glued the 3" strip into a loop and traced a circle with an extra 1/2 on the outside of the circle which I scored so I could bend it inside the loop to create top off the layer. I repeated the same thing with the 2" and 1"strips only with them I made each one smaller than the rest. Once I had my 3 tiered cake, I added strips of cream cardstock punced out with different Martha Stewart punches I have. On the first one I used the Marth Stewart's Deep Edger Border Punch - Garden Trellis. On the second layer I used the Half Daisy punch, but added some of the Garden Trellis to the edge of that to keep it flowing into the first layer. For the final layer I used the Arched Lattice punch. On the crosses I added a dollop of stickles on each joint. I added pearls around the lower edges of each tier.

I placed flowers on each layer. I finished it off with my bride, CC Designs, on the top of the cake, and placed cream flowers around the base of her dress.

What a fun challenge it is as everyone needs a few wedding or anniversary cards in the stash, so let's see what you have up your sleeves.

Hugs xx
