I don't have a Wii SD card for my wii, but I do have one in my 3ds..

My question is would it be safe to use my 3ds card to copy the Wii saves/data to for the transfer to the Wii u?

According to this you need to do that: http://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1124/p/431/c/266

Or would this mess up my up anything it has on it for my 3ds? since it deletes the wii stuff back off it during the transfer (or does it delete everything on the memory card)? I don't want to lose my 3ds games or saves that I already downloaded from the e-shop..

If its not safe I'll just wait till I can buy a cheap Wii card specifically for it..

it IS the same kind of card, but you're right. it WILL DELETE EVERYTHING already on your 3ds's card. you can move your 3ds's data to a pc in the meantime though and then move it back after the transfer though, just make sure you move EVERYTHING on the 3ds's card to a pc first or it'll be deleted.
