Butterfly Wedding Cake

A month or so ago I saw this Martha Stewart Wedding magazine cover and was in love with the cake. It was simple and beautiful and the colors spray of butterflies...gorgeous!

I was commissioned to make a wedding card recently and wanted to do something different, something I hadn't tried before. I decided to use Martha Stewart's cake as my inspiration.

I cut the cake free form, added a little texture with my Cuttlebug embossing plates and added ribbon for a little extra detail. I cut some butterflies with scraps of patterned paper that coordinated nicely together and added a little bling on their bodies. I'm really proud of myself with this card! I love it's dimension and detail...

cardstock: Papertrey Ink - kraft and white, Bazzill
patterned paper: 3 Bugs in a Rug, Basic Grey
ribbon: Michael's
bling: Hero Arts
