Eat Cake & Celebrate


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing another birthday card with you all. Last year Jennifer McGuire did a YouTube Tutorial on doing shaped Easel Cards, using dies from Poppy Stamps. One of the dies she used was this Floral Cake Pop Up Easel Set, later when I was on Craftstash I noticed they had it in stock so as I was placing an order I added it to my stash.

This die came with an additional die set ... Layer Cake Drip Icing, which created the icing (brown) for the two tiers of the cake. 

I added the swirly icing further down the cake, layering two colours together. I die cut three candles layering three together to make sure they we strong, seeing they were standing at the top of the cake.

I added a sentiment as a stopper at the base of my card, so that it is easy to keep the card open when needed. The sentiment is from The Greetery's Sentiment Suite Birthday stamp set. I layered the sentiment using oval dies from Creative Craft Products.

I added flowers (also included in the cake die set around the sentiment and also on the left side of the cake where the two tiers join.

Here is my card when it is folded ready to be placed in an envelope. Because of the height of the candles, this card will fit into a 5 x 7 envelope.
