Hi its Shilpa here and I’m here to share with you all a beautiful wedding card using the Sweet Cart Die Set. I love the versatility of this die set. It creates the most gorgeous 3D carts and with the same elements you can make cards that are just as pretty. (You can see my 3D cart makes over on my YouTube channel @craftangelonline)
Hope you craft along with me to create the card.
You’ll need the following
- Scrumptious Sweet Cart Showcase die set
- Craft Perfect 300gsm Smooth Ivory White Card

Start by cutting all the elements to create the cart for the card. First cut the large, main base die once. I have used the Gleaming Lilac Pearlescent Card. Then with your scissors cut away the sections you see in the photo.
Now using the die that cuts out the scored piece, cut it once using Ivory White Smooth Card and trim along the scored lines using your trimmer or scissors as shown below.
Now cut the following pieces (these will create the decorative side of the cart). Use the following coloured cards. Blue Frost Pearlescent Card, Gleaming Lilac Pearlescent Card, Ivory White Smooth Card and for the little bow, Venetian Gold Mirror Card.
At this point continue to cut more elements for your cart as shown below. This will be for the top of the cart. Use the following cards, Blue Frost Pearlescent Card, Gleaming Lilac Pearlescent Card and Ivory White Smooth Card.
Now cut the following pieces using Ivory White Smooth Card and Venetian Gold Mirror Card.
Cut Wedding Day sentiment using Ivory White Smooth Card and Venetian Gold Mirror Card. You will stick them together to create a gold shadow using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
Create some dainty flower embellishments using the little flower dies from this die set and also using Simple Florals Pretty Pansy Die Set. Use Pearled Silver Vellum Paper for large flowers and Ivory White Card for small ones. You can also use the Tonic Floral Crafters Tool to add dimension to your flowers. Add a Nuvo Pure Sheen Iridescent Circle to the centre of each flower.
You can now start to assemble some elements before adhering to the card front. Use Nuvo Deluxe Glue to stick the following pieces together. Then add 12mm x 12mm Craft Perfect Foam Pads behind the full thing (cut some down to put behind the handle area).
You can now assemble the following section using a combination of Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and 12mmx12mm Craft Perfect Foam Pads.
Then place this on to your card base. Card base here is an A4 piece of Ivory Sheen 250gm Pearl Card scored to create A5 card blank.
Tip – an A4 sheet card scored, makes the perfect A5 size card for the full cart to fit on.
You can add the assembled cart roof of top using doubled up 12mm x 12mm Craft Perfect Foam Pads to give extra dimension.
Tip – add a little curve to the roof using your Tonic Precision Glide Folder for a domed effect
Now time to add the decorative elements using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and 12mmx12mm Craft Perfect Foam Pads behind the balloons.
Final touch is to add the flowers created earlier using hot glue and Fine-Tip Precision Hot Glue Gun. Add an insert on the inside of the card using Classic Cream Card trimmed down to few millimeters smaller than A5, use Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to stick it.
Tip – lay the flowers on top of your cart, take a photo on your phone to remember where you want to stick them.
