Back as promised with pictures of a wedding card I made last weekend.
I used the 3-D cake die by Stampin' Up/Sizzix. Its one of those super long Bigz dies. Believe it or not, I don't own it, yet, I had to borrow....my sister's. I know?!?! Can you believe it?!?! I'm so proud of my sister. Anyways, onto the card. I only had a couple of hours to come up with something and I knew their colours were pink and green. The first one I made I didn't like so I recycled it and this is my second attempt which I like much better.
Quick tip: If you have this die but haven't used it: the pop up fits really nicely within an A2 card but if you're going to make a square (like I did) I would suggest 5.5" x 5.5" or bigger. I made a 5" square card and there's not a lot of room for error margin if you don't place the pop-up perfectly in the center. My first attempt at this card which I scrapped stuck out too much and annoyed me so I made another which was only slightly better.
I've seen this die used as a cruise ship or boat and I think I'll give it a try...once I get a die of my own...cause I can't go on indefinitely borrowing my sister's stuff, right?!?
Well, hope everyone has an excellent week. Thanks for stopping by.
