CardzTV 3D Challenge-Birthday Theme

Hi Everyone! Are you ready for another CardzTV 3D Challenge!!! This one is going to be so much fun!!! We are doing a birthday theme and boy do the design team gals have a treat for you!!! There are so many fun ideas and we can't wait to see yours too!!!

For my project, I decided to make a birthday cake for my son and fill it with candies. He's turning 21 this year and I can't believe where the time has gone!!! I used the Going in Circles stamp set which I am IN LOVE with!! Regarding the Silhouette I used Design ID #51848 for the cake pieces and Design ID #26982 for the scalloped circles. The tag is Design ID #53084 and the cute hippo with balloons is Design ID #39065. If you would like to recreate this with your Cricut, I would recommend, Create a Critter for the hippo, Winter Frolic for the tag and Sweet Treats for the boxes.

Here's a video on how to make the paper cake:

Be sure to enter in your 3D project so that you can win a set of your favorite stamps from CardzTV of your very own!!!!
