40th Birthday Card

A scrapbook friend of my turned 40 this year on Halloween. I don't like to give Halloween birthday cards because I am sure those who are born on Holiday's tend to get a lot of those types of cards. Instead I created this card using the Wild Card cartridge from Cricut. I chose the wedding cake card and made it into a 40th Birthday Card. I cut out the card in two colors (white daisy and twilight) inked all the edges in Chocolate and then embossed each card by running it through my Cuttlebug. Once embossed I cut out each layer and painted it with Close To My Heart's Create-a-Shade Pearl paint. This gave each piece a shimmer to it. After letting the pieces dry I then assembled the cake. For the final touch I painted the numbers in the same pearl paint, inked them and attached them to the card.
