Wedding Cake

My brother and sister-in-law were in town for a friend's wedding last weekend.  They had requested a wedding card from me.  So, the afternoon of the wedding, I sat down to make what I thought was a quick wedding card.  Well, I decided I didn't like my original idea, so I went searching.  I had THIS ONE saved in my files and thought it looked easy enough for CASE.  To spare you the details, this took me quite a bit longer than the quick 15minutes I wanted to spend.  I am quite pleased with the result, though.

Here are some close-up pictures.
I used some interesting combination of products here.  The background is Summer Starfruit and Early Espresso.  The pedestal is made by using the retired-Round Tab punch, then oval punch to take away some of the thickness of the pedestal.  The green cardstock is the retired-Pear Pizzazz (**sniff** I hope it comes back in the next color renovation).  The white satin/sheer ribbon is something that was on my desk, I have no clue where it came from.  Is it SU?  I had a strip of cardstock with Scallop Trim border punch under that ribbon.  The leaves are from the Two-Step Bird punch.  The flowers are from the Itty Bitty punch pack.  The tag on top is stamped with Tiny Tags stamp set; and punched with Jewelry Tag punch.  Each cake layer is a small strip of cardstock, with a piece of 1/8" Early Espresso ribbon.  I rounded the cake layers free-handed.  Partially because I forgot to do it before glueing it down.   The cake is popped up with dimensionals on the back.  The card itself is rounded off with the retired-corner rounder.  Oh, the whole thing was 4.75" x 4.75" so that it would fit in my 5"x5" envelope I had from a decade ago.
