Happy Couple Card with Close to My Heart

Here is a great card to make for that wedding or anniversary you have coming up.  You could even make this a birthday card if you wanted.  I found a this card on Pinterest an just loved it.  I thought I would share it and provide a little instructions oh how I made it.

I started with this stamp set from Close to My Heart.

Supplies used:
Platinum Planet Ink pad (Tsukineko Brilliance Dew Drop Collection)
Lovely Impressions Embossing Folder - Rose Hearts
Ranger liquid pearls - Platinum 
Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle Dies 
Stamp your cake layers and bells with your Platinum Ink, and trim around the images.  

I cut out the scallops using my scalloped rectangle dies and trimmed them to size.  This can be accomplished in other ways if you have a different tool.  I would also suggest lace, I didn't have any on hand.

Emboss the white layer with your embossing folder and lightly add ink to raised images with the platinum ink.  Just a very little, it makes the pattern pop.

Cut your roses at about 1.6" to achieve this size flower.  I used a rolled flower image available on Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge
For the flourishes, I actually cut a large flourish into different sizes and used pieces.  This is a good way to use those large flourishes.  Attach the top of the cake with foam tape for dimension.  

This card measures 4.25 x 5.5", and as you can see the cake takes up the whole card.  If you are going to add a sentiment I suggest using a larger card base.
