The idea for this card came to me as I was falling asleep, and I actually remembered it when I woke up! This was made for the Control Freaks Stampers swap, which we do two or three times a year. I thought since it was June (when I made it), and June is the big month for weddings, that a wedding congratulation card would be lovely. If course, you could use the Happy Birthday cake image and make it completely different.
Lots of layers on this card, just like the layered cake, and there is even a layer from the Layered Leaves Dynamic folder! (A little alliteration, anyone?)
The cake was heat embossed in silver and die cut, then the bottom half of the die was used again on a Silver Foil sheet to make the cake stand. The bottom of the cake was trimmed and glued to the cake stand. It was then popped up on dimensionals, as was the greeting (from Best Birds).
