Needless to say, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to create a festive 20th Sizzix Birthday Card in celebration of our big day. Check out my step by step instructions below to see how I created this colorful greeting card.

7. Arrange the cake layers and cake stand on the card front and adhere them in place. Glue the various flowers together with liquid adhesive and then adhere the stacked flowers and leaves in desired groupings on the cake with liquid adhesive. Adhere the gold glitter numbers directly above the top layer of the cake with liquid adhesive.
