Ribbon Wedding Cake
The wedding season is right around the corner (is there still a wedding ‘season’?)! So I’ve got a great way to use your beautiful May Arts ribbon & turn it into a wedding cake!
You will need May Arts 1 ½ “ crochet , Glossy Accents (or any clear liquid adhesive), May Arts ¼ “ silk, pearls (the type that can be strung- these are from Joanns), vellum, vellum adhesive & cardstock of your choice.
Cut 3 lengths of crochet. I believe these were 1.5, 2.5 & 3.5”.
Using your glossy accents, adhere the crochet to the vellum.
Set it aside for a bit to allow it to dry completely and then carefully cut around the crochet
You will be left with a ribbon wedding cake!
For mass producing (bridal shower invites, for example!) you could certainly stop there. I chose to fancy it up even more! I used the ¼ “ silk to string the pearls
I used Creative Memories frosted splits as my adhesive- it’s the only one that I’ve found that consistently doesn’t show through the vellum. I placed some at each ‘layer’ of the cake to secure the silk ribbon. (I also used a dab of glossy accents under each pearl to keep it in place)
I then added more adhesive & attached it to my card, which already had patterned (Basic Gray) attached as the base.
The great thing about this technique is that you can easily customize the card base to match wedding colors, as I’ve done with this orange stamped background! (This matched the invitation to a ‘T’!)
Another great way to use your May Arts ribbon! Hope you’ve been inspired!
