My 3D Birthday Cake Topper

My first project using my Cricut Maker was my birthday cake topper last year. Since then, I try to explore different materials and projects. So far, I’ve done few cake toppers already using acrylic, cardstocks, glitter cardstock, and vinyl stickers. I’ve been meaning to try 3D Birthday Cake Topper so last week, I finally made my first layered cake topper. 

For this project, I only use the sweet decorative font “Nimaly” and the classic font “Braveold”. I attach and weld the two fonts and create different offset layers. Since it was my first time doing it, it was a challenge to choose colors so I wasted few materials before I finished this gold birthday cake topper. I used a glossy gold vinyl sticker, black cardstock, and gold glitter cardstock.   

The following day, I decided to change my birthday cake topper because I felt sad with my color combination and my husband was teasing me, golden birthday ko daw ba? So I just followed the purple colors of the Love Cynthia Happy Numbers which I printed and cut using a glossy sticker. 

At first, I used a glossy purple vinyl sticker and white cardstock but I changed my mind and decided to print the first layer so I can do a 3D Birthday Cake Topper. For a change, I used a foam sticker in between the cardstocks. I am happy with my improved version of my cake topper.
