I haven’t posted in a few days as I was out in California working with Rubbernecker at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo. It is always fun to meet fellow crafters and especially fun meeting people who have been online friends for years. I hope you enjoyed seeing both versions of the die cut birthday cake. It is a lovely die set and creates a fun cake that can be used for all kinds of occasions besides birthdays. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
Attach strips of mounting tape to the white scalloped layer and attach it to the pink card base.
Cut the upper and lower case letters and the numbers and attach tiny pieces of mounting tape to the back of each.
Set the letters and numbers in place on the white scalloped layer for placement.
Remove mounting tape backing off one letter and/or number at a time and attach it to the white layer.
Forming The Flowers

Place the flower sections face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the round stylus.
Turn the flower sections face up and push down in the center of each to pull the petals up.
Apply glossy accents to the flower sections and attach them together, offsetting the layers to create a well rounded flower.
Cut a set of the Tiny Flower Buds, place them face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each with a tiny tipped stylus.

Cut one section of the Leaf Buds
Attaching the Flowers and Foliage

Apply glossy accents to the foliage and tuck the ends under the flowers and securing them in place with the point of your paper piercer or tweezers.
Attach the leaf buds and tiny flowers to the letters and numbers with glossy accents. I thought a double flower and leaf looked good on the H, 2 and B to emphasize them a little more.
I hope you have been inspired to pull out your dies to create your own birthday card with alphabet and number dies. Thank you for coming by today and take good care, especially if you are in the path of Florence.
