As you all probably know by now, I was on vacation last week. We spent a wonderful week in Grand Haven, Michigan (on Lake Michigan) and attended my cousin's wedding. Here is the card that I made to go with their gift.
The wedding invitation was purple and cream. I used a 5 x 12 piece of StampinUP Vanilla paper, scored at 6 inches, making the card 5 x 6 inches. The purple cardstock was taken from their invitation (great way to ensure the color is a perfect match and recycling!). The cake was cut using Cricut cartridge Simply Charms at 4 x 5 inches.

To separate the layers in the cake, I used the Frills by Cuttlebug embossing folder. The purple gems and flowers were purchased from Michael's in their clearance aisle.
Photo courtsey of Papertreyink.comThe stamp set Big & Bold Wishes from Paper Trey Ink was used for both the outside and inside of the card. I used True Black ink by Paper Trey Ink.
For inside the card, all materials are described above. On the back of the card (which is not pictured) I cut down their invitation and adhered it to the back of the card for a keepsake.
This card was so, so easy to make and my cousin and his wife (!!!!) loved it.
