I made this card for my sister-in-law's birthday. After seeing a similar card somewhere out in blog world (I cannot remember whose blog it was on), I decided to do a really tall card that opens at the bottom.
Here are the details:
Cardstock: American Crafts; Bazzill
Patterned Papers: K and Co.
Size: 4" x 8". Since my paper was 12" and thus folded would only be 6", I added a 2 1/2" section at the bottom of both the front and back of the card and covered it with the pink strip of paper. 1/2" is glued to the other part of the card, which mades the length 8". I covered the inside with one piece of paper 8" long to hide any seams on the inside.
Cake: Wrap It Up Cricut cartridge at 2 1/2" Since this cartridge does not have a shadow, I cut the cake 1/4" larger in yellow. The candles did not line up, but the cake did, so I cut the candles off. I added Stickles for the flames and added a string of pearls on the layers of the cake.
Label: Nestabilities -- embossed with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug folder. I added pearls in the corners from my stash.
Pearls Strands: On a roll purchased in the ribbon section at Hancock Fabrics (I think)
I also used the Swirl Cuttlebug folder on the bottom for texture.
Scalloped bottom: EKSuccess border punch
