This one is for our dear friend "Sam" who now lives far away from us. He's 4 this year, so I wanted to make a "FUN" card for him. I decided to go with a pop up card.
Those little pinwheels on top are so cute, aren't they? You could do pinwheels on every layer if you wanted to. I got off easy since Sam is only 4!
Important! Complete the outside cover of the card before you glue the pop up cake insert into the card. Once the insert is glued, the card is bulky and uneven and difficult to work with. You'll appreciate this tip, trust me.

There is a printable version of this tutorial in my tutorials page.
If you need any of the supplies to make a card like this one, you can find everything you need in my Stampin' Up! Online Store HERE.
I'd love to see your pop up birthday cakes if you make one! Tomorrow I'll show you the card I made for "Sam's" mommy with a stamp set I got at #Convention 2012.
Til later, and may God bless you abundantly,
