Wedding Cake

I made this cake for friends who now live in Norway but got married in Ireland a couple of weeks ago - they should have received it by now so I think its safe to blog.  Unfortunately we couldn't get to the wedding but I hope they had a fabulous day.

It was really hard to get a good photograph of this card, but if you pop it out large, I think the detail just shows.  I used a new damask cake stamp from papermania and stamped in a pale blue with an overcoat of embossing ink onto a grey pearl card and embossed with clear glossy embossing powder.  The cake stand was embossed in ultrafine silver.  I cut it with a nestie and cut a matching silver mat, and pierced holes to poke the roses through.  I overstamped the sentiment, from the new fabby Waltzingmouse set, with black stazon so it could stick to the embossing.  I added a blue vellum base and stamped the co-ordinating swirl from the set in the corners, and finished with a little blue seam binding ribbon.

Night all, Craftilicious x
