Hello Friends! Becca here. Hope yall had a great weekend. It was a fun one for us over here. Nana Susan had herself birthday and we celebrated with cake, pizza, root bear floats, and presents! Yum! I made this Birthday Cake Card for her using my handy dandy Cricut, a few of my favorite carts, and my Cuttle Bug. I used Birthday Bash and A Summer in Paris. Both are are really fun. The solid card stock is from Bo Bunny, and the patterned paper's from My Mind's Eye (Quite Contrary line). The cake was cut using A Summer In Paris cart and the "Happy Birthday" font was cut from Birthday Bash.
The measurements are as follows:
Cake - 3 1/4"
Font - 2"
Polka Dot Mat - 4" x 5 1/2"
Green Mat - 4 1/2 x 5 3/4"
Card - 6 1/2" x 10" (fold in half)
Ribbon - 5 1/2"
I cut (2) cakes for this card so I could use one to create a shadow by "offsetting it". Before attaching the cakes together I ran it through my Cuttle Bug using a "swirly" type embossing folder. Any design will work. After chalking it with purple chalk ink I layered the cakes and attached it to the card with pop dots. After cutting the mats I chalked all sides with brown chalk ink. I love what a little chalk can do. It just makes it pop! Then I layered my pink ribbon and my green ribbon and attached it using basic adhesive.
To complete this card you will need:
Birthday Bash cart
Summer in Paris cart
Cuttle Bug folder (any"Swirly" shape)
Green and pink ribbon
Basic tools and adhesive
Purple and brown chalk ink
White gel pen
