Pop-up Origamic Architecture Cake

update 6/25 9:30 AM: link for cake template corrected

This birthday card was a real "popper". The front of the card selected images were made specially for another cousin Curtis.  Curtis lettering font was done using Liz Display Pro. Background mat is using the Cuttlebug "bricked" embossing folder with inked inside folder technique.  Bicycle image is a SCAL cut from SVGcuts.com cut file Peony Cottage collection/Bicycle Card using my Silhouette to cut. The grass was made using Martha Stewarts punch. I did add the bar across the seat for the boy bicycle and did not use the basket in the cut file.
Slowly open the card to reveal:
The card inside has the milestone year and also the 3-D cake. This cake cut file is from Carol who has a fabrulous blog called Extreme Cards. You can find this free cut file here. There is a video how to make this cake. Using SCAL, I made the frame around the cake using designer paper (not included in the original file but easily created with SCAL). The "happy birthday" was made from SVGcuts.com cut file collection: Premium Pop-Up Cards. Those candy confetti: made using 1/4" hand held circle punch.
And here is the view from the side:
Hope you enjoyed this pop up cake.............have a crafty day.
