Cake Week: Wedding Time!

This cake is made using the Big Shot texture plate as the cake surface (before cake is assembled) along with using the Eyelet Boarder Punch on one side. The butterflies are stamped using Craft White ink on card stock vellum, then cut out. Fold them in half and apply Crystal Effects to keep them on the cake.

Below is a close-up of the cake top. Punch 2 brushed silver card stock scallop circle, attach back to back in between the cake extension to conceal the ends of the shiny brad. The flat back pearl uses a glue dot on top of the knotted taffeta ribbon on each layer.

Back of the cake:
