Pop-up cake birthday

 For this card I used two ornamental punches, one on the corners of the card and the other one on the cake layers.

The candles and flames however were cut out by hand. I used two colours on the candles to make them appear three-dimensional.

On one of the corners I hadn't placed the card quite right into the punch and ended up with a slit punched into my card. In the end I decided to turn this mistake into a feature and decorate it with a piece of ribbon and sequins.

The product I used sold at Joan's Gardens is the Art Institute Designer "Dries Clear" Adhesive.
