YOU WILL NEED:

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Trim a sheet of the silver mirror card and attach to the base card. For the next layer, trim a sheet of white card, blend the Tattered Rose Oxide ink around the four sides, and glitter with Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter. On top of this, matt and layer a piece of patterned paper from the Wedding Collection paper pad and attach to the base card with foam pads. Trim silver mirror card to 17cm-square for the middle layer, then trim paper from the Wedding Collection paper pad and score around the four sides twice using a scoreboard (to add some definition the paper), attach to the silver mirror card, and secure onto the base card with foam pads. 

2 From the Floral Lace Background die set, cut the large outer die in silver mirror card. Trim a piece of white card, colour, and glitter as before, then adhere both together and secure down onto the main card with foam pads. Using the Floral Lace Background die, cut from Crystal White pearl card, then trim a piece of white card roughly the same size. Blend the Tattered Rose Oxide ink all over, then attach a piece of the A4 double-sided sticky sheet onto this piece. Remove the top and attach the Floral Lace Background die-cut piece and cover with Sugared Peach Sparkelicious glitter. Matt and layer onto silver mirror card and attach to the main card.

3 Stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut the Wedding Cake image using Crystal White pearl card and WOW! Metallic Silver embossing powder and then add Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter. Stamp and heat-emboss again. Colour the roses using a light peach marker pen and fussy cut. Attach the roses to the main cake using Pinflair glue gel, then decorate with clear jewels from the Sparkling Silvers Self-adhesive Sparkles set and attach to the left-hand side of the base card with foam pads. 

4 Stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut the foliage from the Dazzling Foliage and Summer Foliage stamp and die sets and decorate with Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter. 

5 Using the Country Flower stamp and die set, stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut the large and middle flower onto Crystal White pearl card using WOW! Metallic Silver embossing powder. Leave the die-cuts in the die and blend the Tattered Rose Oxide ink over so you still have clean white edges when the dies are removed. Stamp, heat-emboss and fussy cut the same images, only this time using vellum. Turn the vellum over and colour from the back using the Oxide inkpad and then glitter all the petals with Silver Crystal Sparkelicious glitter. Shape the petals, adhere together with Pinflair glue gel, and secure the foliage and flowers onto the base card with Pinflair glue gel. Die-cut the stamens from the Christmas Rose stamp and die set, glitter with the Sugared Peach Sparkelicious glitter, then attach to the middle of the flowers along with a jewel from the Frosty Christmas Bling Box.

6 Stamp and heat-emboss the sentiment on to Crystal White pearl card. Matt and layer onto silver mirror card and attach to the base card with foam pads to finish.

    Thank you Glynis. Lovely looking card!
    I have recently purchased the Wedding Cake stamp and die set is there any chance of a youtube video demo of how to ‘make’ the cake using the additional elements too. It would be really useful. I have several anniversaries coming up this year and I would very much like to get the most out of this stamp and die set
