Taking the Cake birthday card

No matter your age, a hot pink card mentioning cake never gets old.  My husband's Aunt's birthday was last week and I had a blast making her card.  Happy Birthday Janie!

Cricut Machine or access to one such as in a scrapbooking store
Cartridge - Just Because Cards,  Wild Card
Cardstock paper in four colors [pink, brown, light brown, off-white]
Craft glue
Brown Sharpie marker - thin


Start with using the Just Because Cards cartridge.  Using your pink cardstock cut out one Cake that is 5 1/2 inches.  This will be the base of the card.  Next, cut out one Cake-s in off-white that is also 5 1/2 inches.  Glue these together.  Meanwhile, cut out one word Cake in pink (5 1/2 in).  Then, cut out one word Cake-s in brown (5 1/2 in).  This will make the phrase "you take the cake".  Glue these together and then glue them to the front of the card.  To make the cake cut out one layer 1 Cake in light brown (5 1/2 in).  Next, cut out one layer 1 Cake-s in dark brown (5 1/2 in).  Lastly, cut out one layer 2 Cake-s in pink to make the cherry (5 1/2 in).  Glue your cake together and add this to the front.  I used the Wild Card cartridge to cut out the Happy Birthday phrase on the inside using brown.
