You're Invited!

Welcome to another Sunday, which means it's time for another theme! In keeping with the fact that the next week is full of birthdays in our family, we are sticking to the birthday theme. However, this week is geared more towards "everyday" birthdays. (Meaning no more Wonderland- can't wait to have some cake tonight, though!!)
Anyway, getting on with this week's projects. Today's post is an invitation. It's mighty spiffy, in my opinion ;). It's one we haven't done yet. Here it is:

From the outside, it doesn't look like much. But, when you slide it out...
The cake pops up! How cool is that?! On this card, the invitation is written on the background paper. The slider ends at the top, so you can read all of the information. And the birthday cake itself is 3D, which you can see in the third picture. (FYI- "Riley Johnson" is the name I've decided to use for my invitations. It is not a "real name" and I do not know anyone with that name.)

This type of card doesn't have to be just for invitations. I plan on doing more of these in the future. They're relatively easy to do, once you figure all of the measurements and placements out.
Thanks for looking and join us the rest of the week for some more birthday ideas. This week's projects are more like birthday gifts, rather than decorations, like last week's.

Today’s Party Trivia:
- New York City's Chrysler Building opened to the public in 1930. It was the largest man-made structure at the time, standing 1,046 feet tall.
- The Three Little Pigs was released in 1933.
- The Golden Gate Bridge opened to pedestrians in 1937.
