 Directions for birthday cake card:

Circle punch, scallop punch
Spellbinder flower die, Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die
Designer paper (3 patterns), white card stock 
2 brads
Pearls, buttons

Cut white Card Stock for 3 tiers:
Bottom tier 11 x 3 1/2
Middle tier 8 1/8 x 3 1/8
Top tier 5 3/4 x 3

Score all 3 tiers a 1/2 in from left edge, fold in half at score mark.

Then cut Design Paper to cover front of all tiers:
Bottom 5 1/4 x 3 1/2
Middle 3 1/8 x 3 3/4
Top 2 3/4 x 3

Punch out half circles in center of front pockets. Prior to closing pockets, cut 1/16 wide slit in center of right side, 3/4 from top to 1/2 from bottom. Continue with other 2 pockets. 

Unfold pockets, add brad to bottom and center tiers, then add brad to middle and top tiers. At this point you can pull out the cake layers. 

Punch 1 inch strip of white Card Stock and punch with scallop punch, add to top of tiers. Cut half circles from white strips. Add die cut flower to top tier, add buttons with twine to bottom layer. Put pearls on decorative scallop strips.

Thank you Laurie!
