I thoroughly enjoyed making this card in my sunny dining room this afternoon!
It's a slightly unusual themed card (an under the sea birthday cake!), but I think Karen Burniston's new Cake Pop-Up die set is great for animating anything!
I bought a couple of new Sizzix die sets a while ago, and wanted to try them out - they are the 'Under the Sea' and 'Paper Cuts Alphabet' Thinlit sets.
To decorate the cake I added scalloped trim that comes with the cake set, and used two yellow seaweed pieces attached to the top of the cake, either side of a whale.
To make the whale, I sandwiched some wire between two whale die cuts, and then between various sized water droplets.
I used Studio Calico's 'Printshop' 12x12 paper pad for most of the patterned papers, plus a couple from Prima's 'All About Me' 6x6 pad.
I attached the letters with Fineline glue.
I used dies from the Sizzix 'Under the Sea' die set for the card front.
