E2 Birthday Layout

Hi everyone! Allison from Goody Bag Diva thrilled to be back at The BugBytes today. I decided to share with you my entry for the contest Jinger Adams (spokesperson for Provo-Craft) is holding a contest for E2 (Expression machine 2) launch on HSN, which premieres April 26th. The only requirement really was that it was a birthday theme. I immediately wanted to incorporate some kind of pop-up, which didn't really turn out to be a realistic expectation as I had neither the time or energy to figure those tricky pop ups out, so I decided to incorporate a cut from Everyday PopUp Cards anyway, and add a "pop-down" twist.

The details:
For the printed papers I used Basic Grey's Cupcake line, and the rest is Bazzill cardstock. I used my favorite scalloped square from Elegant Edges cut at 11.30 inches for the background, which is layered on top of two more pieces of cardstock. The photo mats are 4.5 by 6 and 3 by 4 inches. The title is from Stamping and is sized at 2.80. The cake is from the aforementioned Everyday PopUp Cards and is sized at 4.30 inches.
A closeup of the cake:

Instead of cutting out the sprinkles that are supposed to go on the top layer of the cake I used brads instead and added some chunky glitter. I hid contour of the lines for the sprinkles and also skipped one of the extra layers for the flames.

The twist is located behind the cake, it flips down for some hidden journaling:

I did this by cutting two layers of the shadow piece, and on the top layer I welded a rectangle from George, scored at the bottom of the cake and adhered it to the back of the second shadow layer.

Some more details:
I added some doodling to the title and some faux stitching around the mats. I added some ribbon and brads to the bottom mat, and anchored the corner of the top mat with brads as well.  I did make one other layout but whether it makes it into the envelope remains to be seen. Thanks for looking today, I hope you will stop to visit me at Goody Bag Diva, and I will see you next month!
