Here is a pic of the card and then we will go on to a few "how to's".
I started with a 5 1/2 x 81/2 piece of orange cardstock. After cutting the line shown on the template, I moved the cardstock to my ScorPal to make all the score lines.
Here is a side view to show the valleys and peaks:
After making the base and adhering the dotted patterned paper with Tombow Adhesive tape, the really run part began - stamping the cake, the cluster of balloons and coloring them. Both the cake and the balloons are cut out with coordinating dies. The large balloons were cut from cardstock (with Stamploration dies) that matched the Copic colors I used on the small balloons. The sentiment piece is cut with a Spellbinder circle die and backed with a Spellbinder scalloped circle die. After coloring the cake, I added liquid pearls to the dots on the cake.
All the balloons and sentiment are adhered to the "steps" with Scor Tape. The last step was to pop the cake up with dimension foam tape.
Here are the products I used:
Paper Sweeties stamps and dies
Stamploration balloon dies
Spellbinder circle and scallop circle dies
Liquid Pearls - White Opal and Cantalope
