Celebrate You Pop-Up Cake

A talented and sweet blogging friend, Nancy Riley over at iSTAMP celebrated a birthday this week. This card was especially created just for her and I hope she likes it! She is always making the coolest have to check out her Cupcake Gift Set!

It is my first attempt at the new Pop-Up Cake XL Bigz Die. I was slightly overwhelmed with putting the pop-up cake together, but the die comes with step-by-step instructions including color photos...and what a great help that is! It's really quite easy to do...and what a WOW effect this pop-up gives, don't you think?

I used the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper along with coordinating cardstock in Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, and Rich Razzleberry. The Party Hearty stamp set is one of my favorite stamps sets, so I used it with the same coorinating ink colors plus Pumpkin Pie. The front panel also shows off our new Melon Mambo Polka Dotted Ribbon....yummy!

Inside the card...POP!

Paper: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White CS, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP

I've been working on some improvements to the Sizzix pop up cake, and testing some alternate designs. I have two posts of the series up, with three more to come.
