Happy Birthday AI

(This is my second post in just a few hours so be sure to scroll down.)

In celebration of Artful INKables' birthday, the theme of Think Ink Challenge #16 is to create a birthday themed card or project. You can find the complete details HERE. I hope you'll play along! don't have to own any AI stamps!

I love this cake image so of course, I thought of it first! It looks like a fairly normal card until you see the side. I made each layer of the cake stick out as a real layered cake would. See:

The candles are flat onto the main panel. The top layer has a pink paper scrap under it to hold it up just a tad. The middle layer is on an 1/8" dimensional and the bottom layer is on a 1/4" dimensional. Way cool! Bet its chocolate inside too. Mmmmm.

Stamps: Artful Inkables Birthday Best
Paper: GP 110, Papertrey White, Close to Cocoa, SU DP
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Copics, dimensionals, scallop edge punch, ribbon from Pink Hedgehog

LOVE the 3-D effect! I never would have guessed it was popped up either, but it looks fantastic (good enough to eat!) Love the colour combo too.
