Interactive Birthday Cake | My Favorite Things

So evidently I've had this MFT Twice the Wishes Card Kit since July 2016 and this 'might' be the first time I've used the dies (good grief).  I'm super thankful for Jennifer McGuire's YouTube HERE.  I watched it several times.  The card on the left was my first card.  I have a second card but it's a custom card for my girl.  I decided to also try a larger card, the one on the right.

I squirreled away the MFT cardstock so I've used Stampin' Up:

Blushing Bride   |   Calypso Coral   |   Coastal Cabana  

I've used the following MFT Stamps:

BB Happy Hippos
More Essential Sentiments
Twice The Wishes 

The ink I used:

Catherine Pooler - Aquatini

Copic:  R20, BG13/BG15, Y08/Y17 +  E00/E02

I took Jennifer's words of wisdom of keeping the overall design clean + simple to let the pop up sentiment be the star of the show.  

I used Wink of Stella on all the Calypso Coral.  I also added a bunch of white gel pen details.

I'm generally not an interactive card designer but always love the end result.
