MAY PAPER CRAFT CHALLENGE DAY 3: LAYERED CAKE BIRTHDAY CARD

May 3, 2019

Because May is a big birthday month in my family, there was no question that I would do at least one birthday card craft.  

 

 

Look familiar? It's because back in January, I created similar layered cakes to top off a couple of wrapped presents.  These tiny cards are the perfect match to go with.

 

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

 

 

DIRECTIONS (FOR ONE CARD):

 

 

Trim card stock to 3" x 6" and fold lengthwise in half to create the card shape, then set it aside. In another colour, make a rectangle or box for the cake.  Then use its dimensions to help you create the "icing" layers, including the one for the top.  To create a dripping effect, use the scallop punch.  

 

 

Assemble the cake using the crafter's tape.   

 

 

Use the silver paper (or other glittery paper you have in your scraps) to make the candles, and tape them to the back of the cake. 

 

 

Attach the cake to the card with the crafter's tape.  Then to finish, add the candle "flames", made with the stars punch. 

 

 

 

Total project time: about 15 minutes for one card.
