so I removed the wedding cake from the bag and set it aside to use a lil later.
|this is what it looked like underneath|
|and this is the cake I set aside for later use. so cute!|
and it looked good enough... but good enough just didn't cut it for me It definitely needed something else. That huge flower covered the cake shape but looked a little lonely. Then I remembered the butterflies ( cut out on my cricut/ thank you sister for the cartridge) that I had leftover from another project and glued one of them on.
so cute and it only took me a few minutes to finish.
The pink bag I've been saving from I'm not sure where....
|kind of Blah|
I embellished a wedding card with the cake from the first gift bag..
First step was to cut out the polka dot paper into a rectangle. Fold in half to make the card. ( I made mine to fit into an envelope I already had).
|polka dot paper is already folded in half in this picture|
cut out some pale pink paper the size I thought would look good for the cake embellishment.
Cut brown paper a little larger than that and glued the layers together with a glue stick.
I apologize that I forgot to take a picture of the inside, I made this VERY last minute and the picture taking was not helping get it done faster. My husband was patiently asking me every few minutes ... you almost ready? translation "You're done, let's go".
But anyway, what I usually do is print out the little verse or saying that I want in the card on computer paper. cut it out a 1/4" smaller than the actual card making sure it is centered and where I want it to be and glue it to the inside cover . I thought it turned out really cute. Loved that the polka dot paper was already distressed looking. Saved me a step. I usually ink the edges a little bit.
Thank you for stopping by!
