3 Tiered Cake Card

I just got my new 3-D Tiered Cake Die delivered Friday, and thought I would make a cake! 🙂

I used Pacific Point Cardstock for the inside and Good Morning Sunshie DSP for the “icing” on the sides.  Kiwi Kiss Ribbon finished it off.  This is my third attempt at making a cake, when the directions say to use card stock–use cardstock!! 🙂  After making two other cakes, one entirely out of DSP and one entirely out of cardstock, and this one a mix of the two, this one looks the best and folded the best.  So, the moral is, use cardstock for the inside and DSP for the decoration.  Also, another tip is to pull up just a little on the tab in the middle when you unfold it–it helps to get everything straightened out again.  Make sure you use sticky strip!

This looks overwhelming to make, but actually after making 3, it becomes quite fast and you can put all the sticky strip on at once and peel it off as needed.  The only problem I had was when the die cut the paper, in some places it would cut instead of score and I did have to use small pieces of scotch tape to make sure everything would hold together, but you can’t see it from the outside!! 🙂
