Triple-Layer Cake Box Cards

Hello friends! How are you? 
Seems like it's been a little while since my last post. Life just seems to get busier and busier everyday!

I hadn't realized how long it had been since I had used my Silhouette to create some 3D papercrafts (my first love). So today I want to share with you a few box cards from SVGCuts Garden Party Box Cards SVG Kit that made for some very special ladies in my life.

I decided to make the same triple layer cake box card for both of them since they were for birthdays. Plus, it was just quicker to do them both at the same time when most of the same supplies were being used. I did alter the file by increasing the size by approximately 25%.

My oldest friend on this planet, well more like sister, turned the big 40 this past Tuesday 💗
I thought this triple layer cake card was perfect for the occasion!

As you can see I added the numbers to the top of the cake. To make them, I used the SSS Big Number dies set and just cut the numbers out of metallic paper using my Big Shot. The rest of the card was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo. To finish the back of the card I used a stamp from MFT's Magical Unicorn stamp set. 

These cards always amaze me. 
I just love how they fold flat and fit nicely in an envelope!

Here are both the cards I made side by side. 
The card with 80 on top,  I made for my Grandmother who is celebrating her 80th birthday in a few weeks. Unfortunately, I won't be with her that day because she lives in Portugal, but my mother will be hand delivering it to her for me!

Since I went with silver for the previous card, I chose to do this one in gold. 
To the centres of the flowers I added some tiny drops using the Dandelion Nuvo Crystal drops
To add some interest to the flower petals, I inked up all their edges with a coordinating distress ink pad. Check the links below for more details. 

Of course I didn't have any Portuguese stamps to stamp on the back of the card so thankfully I had the Perfectly Penned stamp set from Concord and 9th to save the day!
Translated it means "80 Congratulations Grandma"

Hope you got some inspiration from my Triple-Layer Cake Box Card creations.
