Cake Easel Birthday Card

I made this card for a good friend's birthday. The Cake Easel SVG cut file is from My Scrap Chick found here. I added the Presents cut file from the Silhouette Retail store called Christmas Gifts Boarder.  Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing Folder on presents.  I made some changes to the presents cut file: cut and separated the gifts with the "knife" in the program and chose the two I wanted to use, then removed the inside cuts  on the taller present as well as added the "t" to resemble ribbon. Confetti Strings is also from the Silhouette Retail store. Designer Paper used is originally from K and Company but has been in my stash for a while. Solid paper used is Stampin-Up So Saffron and Certainly Celery. The Brown, lavender, Turquoise, and White used is from Recollections. Ink all the edges using brown ink.
Side view of easel: cake top, candles, and flames are popped with foam squares.
 Card unfolded:
 Back of card:
 Card flattened to fit into an A2 size envelope:
The candles: Diamond Dust Stickles used on the candles, icing, and around the mat with the stamped message.  Yellow Stickles used on the flames of the candle
Lifestyle Crafts Twirl Embossing Folder on the top layer of the cake. Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl on the bottom cake.  The paper used for the Silver platter paper is from American Crafts.
 Components to make this card: LOTS!!! But no fear, it is all cut out using the Silhouette.
Thank you for stopping by today to visit my project...............have a crafty day!!!
