CTO Challenge # 13




Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at Celebrate The Occasion! This week the challenge is to make a wedding card and you must include a ribbon. I hope you will play along.

For my card I wanted something simple yet elegant. I think I achieved what I was going for. This card is actually pretty big... 4 1/4 by 8 1/2. I cut the cake from Sweethearts at 3 inches. I cut all the layers in white and colored in some of it with a silver pen. I embossed it with Swiss Dots folder and pop dotted the cake layers. I embossed 3/4 of the background paper with the Sizzix Twizzle folder and tied a ribbon at the end of the embossing. To finish I stamped the sentiment. I hope you all will give this challenge a try and I can't wait to see what you'll create! Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking.
