As per usual, we have a fantastic HOW TO video to share with you – so you can really see how quick and easy it is to make this fun and easy Pop Up Birthday Cake Card. As mentioned above and in the video, you don’t have to use “pretty pattern paper” like I have here.. but you can also decorate the “white cake” with pens or things like washi tape. Have a look at what you have already and work with what you have got! A word of warning though… this pop up birthday card DIY is so easy, that you will want to make more and more and more… so why not make a batch and have them handy for up coming birthdays throughout the year? Make a white one, with a little bride and groom and you have the perfect Wedding Cake Card too! Enjoy!!
There’s just something about a paper greeting card that never loses its charm for some of us. We like to hold the greeting in our hands, feel the crisp paper, run our fingers over the words and pictures as if we were trying to absorb the essence of the message. Most of all we like to see the handwritten notes and the signatures of our loved ones. While ecards may be viewed instantly and forgotten over time, printed cards can be saved, cherished and shared for years. Although ecards have replaced printed cards in many instances as the more convenient, inexpensive and quick mode of wishing one another, printed cards still retain that special quality that electronic messages cannot convey effectively.
Your life will not be complete without a good friend who is always by your side. This is my wish for you: comfort on difficult days, rainbows to follow the clouds, smiles when sadness intrudes, faith so that you can believe, sunsets to warm your heart, laughter to kiss your lips, courage to know yourself, hugs when spirits sag, patience to accept the truth, beauty for your eyes to see, confidence for when you doubt, friendships to brighten your being, and love to complete your life.
All I want is for you to be happy on your birthday. We get so much by giving to those we love, even if that giving is simply encompassed in our expression of our very best hopes and wishes on behalf of our best friends. In celebrating those we love, we celebrate our shared lives and the time we have spent in the joyful company of our trusted loved ones.  When we put the best future of others ahead of our own good fortune, we demonstrate love. When our best friends do the same, our love is justified.
Friends who truly love you won’t forget your birthday and always wishes you well. They also wish for you to have a bright birthday, many good and loyal friends, and days of good health and good fortune now and in the future. Who wouldn’t love such an endearment as this? It is a selfless proclamation of love and loyalty from one true friend to another.

For me, your birthday is one of the most special days for the whole year. Every ending is also a new beginning, and the year is no exception. Age may just be a number, but it brings wisdom and the joy of nostalgic memory. Every circuit we make around the sun is another year of opportunity and the joy of sharing our lives with those we love, especially our very best of friends. So a birthday is also a doorway into our own future, through which we can step together, in love.
