This is another spectacular paper entry for the Summer Solstice Challenge. I just can’t get over the detail work on this project – it is stunning!

Here is my entry for the KNK Summer Solstice Challenge. I thought since June is a very popular month for people to get married I would do a wedding cake. The only thing I didn’t use my Zing to cut were the straight side pieces of the cake and the “risers” for the cake topper. The doilies on the cake tops are from an image I traced, and the cake topper (birds & heart) is a free vector file from webdesignhot.com that I edited for my design. All other designs are mine.
The bases of the cakes are cut from 130# cardstock (Neenah Cougar) and then covered with cream cardstock. The cream cardstock is Recollections brand (65#), and the white cardstock is Wausau Index (110#). The birds are highlighted with Windsor & Newton iridescent medium. The beaks, legs, and eyes are coloured with copic markers. All the flowers are highlighted with Elmer’s opal glitter glue. The rhinestone gems & pearls are Recollections brand. To adhere it all together I used a combination of Aleene’s tacky white glue, an ATG, and a glue gun.
The finished project stands approximately 27″ tall.
Please join me in a round of applause for this beautiful and elegant paper wedding cake!
Stay tuned for more projects from the KNK and Team KNK Summer Solstice Challenge.
