It's a Nice Day . . . For a White Wedding!

Do I have you singing along to Billy Idol's song White Wedding? For some reason, as I was making this wedding card, that song kept playing my mind. Silly!

I used a lot of different products for this wedding card. They will be listed at the end of the post. You may be more curious about how I created this wedding cake shape card from scratch? If so, read on!

1) Start with a 6.50 x 5 inch white card

2) From the top, measure & mark with a pencil 1.5 inches
down and 2 inches in from either side. Cut out the 2 x 1/5 inches from each side.

3) The middle layer is 1.75 inches tall and 1.25 inches removed
from each side. Cut out the 1.25 x 1.75 piece from each side.

4) You are now ready to decorate your cake!

I hope my directions make sense. If not, drop me an e-mail and I'll be more than happy to e-mail you the pattern. You could also use this type of card for a birthday or anniversary card!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend and stop back soon!
