My Daughters 18th Birthday card / pattern

Pin It
Our daughter turned 18 on Friday. She didn't have any exams that day so she did some study and watched the Olympics till everyone got home and then wanted to open her pressies altogether. our church youth group came over and sang the loudest happy birthday Ive ever heard to cool....our little house was so full you couldn't see the lounge room or kitchen floor. We enjoyed a party the next night with here friends at out local Chinese restaurant ...great times together!!.... I wondered for ages what type of card to make her and this is what i came up with. A 3 Tiered cake card. You could use this for lots of different occasions especially weddings....she loves orange so thats why i kept it simple colour wise . Very simple to do so lets get started and I'll show you how. Using the pattern below cut out your pieces

I cuttlebug embossed all the layers and inked them. Now lay foam tape along the top of the main card which is the base cake....and the back of the small top layer.

Stick down the small top layer to the middle section.

Now on the back side attach foam tape to the bottom middle layer and stick this a back view

these are some cute dimond star stickers i found.....

and of couse a pic of the Birthday girl....and the cake....the stars were lookin a bit sad by the time we got it down to the restraunt but it was yummy and Beth loved cutting through the whole 3 layers.....

Oh i almost forgot the pattern......

and my thought for the day is a text that Beth's been reading each day as she dose here study and exams ....this hangs on the food cupboard where she often see's it while heading for a quick snack ;)....We love you Beth and know the Lord has some mighty plans for your you heaps

PS I received this beautiful pic of this card made by Barb i know your cake making teacher will love it and all the best for you lessons....Luv Valita

and a last thought

Take delight in the Lord and He will give you your
heart's desires. Commit everthing you do to the Lord.
Trust Him, and He will help you.
Psalm 37:4-5
