I always think of engagements and wedding announcements as Spring approaches. I’m not quite sure why as I expect people get married all year round – my own was in December – but somehow blossom and weddings… well here is the first of many wedding cards I will need this year no doubt.
The Signature die range has quite a few wedding ideas and this cake is one of them – although of course, you could also use it as a birthday, christening, golden wedding or any celebration cake. I have used just the base very successfully as a Christmas cake design with embellishments of holly etc.
The words are from foil printed sets that are easily available, I have a drawer full of oddments from many years ago that often come in handy, though of course, wedding related words are also available as dies from All Occasion or Britannia dies.
So the components on this card are the Signature dies wedding cake (SD405), the Signature dies wedding horseshoe (SD038) and very importantly the Signature Sabrina Lace Border (SD407) – this is a very useful decorative border that I have used masses of times, it always looks lovely.
Colour wise, nothing beats white and silver – or you could use white and gold if it was for a golden wedding celebration of course. The other option is to know the bride’s colour scheme and bring that into the card. Hooray for weddings I say – I love them!
