Wedding Cake Pop Up Card

Yay, it's done!

I borrowed the idea for this card from Hiroko at Canon's Creative Park.

Here are all the pieces, cut out. The bottom cake layer is 4" in diameter and the top one is 2.5".

Don't the pieces look like they're floating? Here I was shoving the flowers around on the plain paper model to see where I wanted them.

Cake sides glued into rings.

Marking the placement of the cake on the card, arranging the cut-out hearts, and a peek at the front.

Putting it all together.

The front of the card (sentiment not inked yet).

And the back. The heart covers the tab that pulls the side of the bottom cake.

Hours later...I don't think I'll ever make this one again!

Wowza! You are one talented lady! Do you have a recipient in mind for this fabulous card? The son of a good friend of mine is getting married in a few weeks. I wonder if I could make a simplified version for him...Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for you comment on my blog. I really did have fun making it :)

the textured paper you used definitely did't help. The paper i used for those parts inside was a bit too thick, so the cake had small problems with opening.

Anways I am looking forward to making another one ;)
