For my cousin’s birthday, Andrew and I made this birthday card. Andrew wanted to make something with a lot of razzle-dazzle.
The white base of the card, some glittery cardstock, was run through the embossing machine to give a faint polka-dotted background. Then, using mega-glittery cardstock, we cut out the cake, using some cloud-edged scissors for the bottom edge of the blue frosting.
The candle shape is a bit abstract. Instead of cutting a flame, we went with some sort of quadrilateral. I think it reflects the overall boxy shape of the cake.
