Gift with card with TGF Cake Topper

Hello everybody,

One of the first sets I bought from The Greeting Farm (and I bought a whole lot of sets since :S) was the Cake Topper set. I fell in love the moment my eyes saw the set, so gorgeous and romantic. I haven't been able to use it yet though. Of course part of why I haven't inked it up yet is what most of probably find, so much stamps and so little time to craft. The other reason for me is that I haven't had a wedding since I bought them. But FINALLY two people decided to tie the knot :) so that gave me an excuse to put this gorgeous set to work. Here is what I made:
I already knew this set would become one of my favorites and I was so right What a joy! Let me show you the box I made:

The box came in a Card-Art cardkit a couple of months ago. I knew it would come in handy and this seemed like the perfect time to use it. We bought the couple in question two rather funny just married aprons so the box would be the perfect gift wrapping. The box is ready to use and decorate so how easy can you go :). The papers and the sentiment on the box are also from a older Card-Art cardkit and they are from Dream Street Papers. I used my new Leaves punch by Mc Gill's and the gorgeous white and pink-ivory roses are by Mulberry and I bought them from my friend Helma at Stamping Corner. Finally I used some gorgeous green and peach pink cardstock that was in the same cardkit as the design paper and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Here is a close up of the image:
As always colored with Derwent Watercolour Pencils, Copics and 3D foamcubes for extra dimension. Here is a close up of the sentiment on the box:
Isn't that gorgeous? It is also from Dream Street Papers and there was a whole gorgeous sheet of these in the cardkit mentioned. I thought this one was just perfect for this wedding gift.

As for the card:
Very simple. The same papers, punch, embossing folder and roses as the box. The sentiment is included in the Cake Topper set. I stamped it with my Top Boss clear embossing ink and dusted it with golden embossing powder. The ribbon was actually attached to a gift basket I received when my youngest daughter Amy was born... I never throw anything away :).

This is the inside of the card and you can see the envelope underneath the card:
Again the same green paper and the same Cuttlebug embossingfolder. Congrats is one more sentiment that is included in the Cake Topper set and again it was stamped with Top Boss clear embossing ink and dusted with golden embossingpowder.

As for the envelope:
I only inked up the top of the stamp and embossed it again with my golden embossingpowder. I forgot to clean the stamp properly though so there is still a bit of black ink on the bottom of the impression where there is no embossing but I don't think that's all that bad. I think it's a gorgeous envelope and I love the set.

Hope you enjoyed!!!

Take care!!
