Happiest Day of my Life

Hello friends, thanks so much for joining me today. As I have previously mentioned ,I have been sorting through my papers and realised I have a lot of unmade cards sitting in there - LOL.  A lot of companies create Paper Collections with wonderful images like this one below in their papers.  I needed a quick 'not too fussy' card, so reached for my Authentique Paper and Spellbinders  - and this was the result - what do you think?!

The sentiment panel is from Authentique Paper Wishes Collection and has been cut/embossed using the third largest Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" PlatformThis has been popped up onto patterned paper that has been cut/embossed using the second largest die cut from the Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles .  The layered sentiment is popped up onto a card front that has also been cut from the Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles - this time using the largest die - Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares have been used to pop up the layers.

The layered card front has been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The cupcakes have been fussy cut/hand cut out using scissors from the patterned paper and popped up using 3d Foam Squares.
