Cake Slice Boxes - Wedding and Anniversary
Another day of fun and creations! I finally got an order for a 30th Anniversary. I think the tradition is to celebrate it with Pearls and Diamonds. It was not really hard to come up with something for wedding because SU has all the tools for the occassion. From embossing to the embellishments, to the paper and the stamps! How easy is that!
This is my first Wedding Slice. I love using the hues of white and vanilla! I used the Shimmery White cardstock #101910 for the cake body and Whisper white for the top and doily. Of course, the flowers should be in Very Vanilla to apply contrast! The flowers here are also spritz with the new Smooch Spritz - Vanilla Shimmer #118772. Always perfect! I used the Elegant Bouquet Textured Impression Folder #115964 on this piece. Then decorated it sparingly with rhinestone. (featured is not SU). But used the Pretties Kit #109114 for the pearl embellishment. I added also my favorite White Organza Ribbon #114319. The ribbon looked like the train on a wedding dress as well as it did here in this cake slice.
I was asked to make a male version of the slice so all I could think of are darker shades of beige. I went with Creamy Caramel #102514(retiring)for the body. I will miss this color very much! I used the same Very Vanilla on the flower to create unison. And embellished with the 5/8"-Chocolate Chip Brown Satin Ribbon #117287. The Textured Embossing Folder I used here is the Manhattan Flower #114517 and the Perfect Polka Dots #117335.
