"It's A Nice Day For A White Wedding"

Be sure to watch the video at the top left side of my blog to see This Wedding Collection!!! :D

Weddings are a beautiful time for sharing so why not create something fantastic for the bride and groom! I thought it would be really great to create a wedding cake that could collect all the wedding cards and then later be a keepsake. Imagine this at the actual big day or how fun would it be at the bridal shower! I had so much fun designing this that I went a bit further and designed a total wedding decoration ensemble, including a bouquet of butterflies! How fun! I challenged myself and made mine in all white, but it would be great if done in the wedding colors! Hope you enjoy making these as much as I did.

Have Fun With Color And Texture

Have you ever looked at your paper, only to find that you don't have any prints you want to work with, or you're just very low on printed/patterned paper? No need to fear, pull out all your plain card stock, chances are you will have some fantastic colors you can play with! You can add so much pizzazz to plain paper with a little texture, a few inks, markers and watercolor paint! :)

This Sun Lever Card is an example of a really fun and colorful card I created from files. I used only plain card stock! :D No patterns etc. I just used awesome colors, inked the sides and sent some of the pieces through my Cuttlebug to give it some texture.

This card is the Sun Lever Card from the

Designer Tips:

1. Ink all the sides of your cut pieces before you assemble and glue together
2. When adding details think in odd number for groupings (I grouped my stars in two sets of three's) odd numbers are more appealing to the eye.
3. Add texture to plain paper, with an embossing machine, then run a marker lightly over some of the raised
pieces, this will give it so much more dimension.
4. Don't be afraid to use bold colors, they really pop :)
