Hi friends! Do you make different sized cards? I do - and my latest favorite is the mini slimline format - it's so cute! I'm more comfortable working in smaller formats, so this cute format is my jam.
I wanted to use the Birthday Cake Pop-up Die in this format, but I ran into a bit of a snag. If I position the die at the crease in the card, when the card was closed, the candles would extend past the card, which would require a larger envelope and possibly risk them being bent. But I was undeterred! I noticed that the OPENING for the candles would allow me to put candles - slightly shorter of course - behind the cake and preserve the dimensions of the card - yay! You'll see what I mean in a minute.
But first - the front of the card! I masked off a band on the card front and used Hero Hues Reactive Inks in Lemon Drop and Taffy to ink blend a stripe with Ink Blending Brushes and the Streamer Stencil. The sentiment is from the Color Layering Cupcake set.
Then you open up the card to this amazing 3D cake pop-up!
Here's how it comes together.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
