Pretty Pink Posh Interactive Cake Card

Good morning!  Earlier this month Pretty Pink Posh released it's first interactive die - the Interactive Cake Dies. My teammates made some AMAZING birthday cards using it, and there is a great intro video tutorial in the product description here that you can watch to see one way to put it together.  I made mine before the video was recorded, so I put mine together a little differently (more on that later). 
I started by die cutting the major Interactive Cake Die pieces (the large cake base, the smaller inside layer, and the pull tab).  I blended a light ballet slipper pink on the larger layer and adorned both layers with the beautiful Spring Corner Frame to mimic lace. 
I added a few gold embossed sentiments from the Sentiment Strips: Birthday stamp set to the inside layer as well as the Large Celebrate Shadow Script at the top of my card.  Then I die cut and added some candles to the top by the pull tab.  
The diagram below shows how I put the layers together, so that the hidden layer pulls out but not completely. First, I cut a small strip of cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the inside cake layer (represented by the pink line).  You want it to extend just beyond the width of that smaller layer.
On the back side of the large cake layer, I built a track with narrow foam strips (the blue lines in the photo).  I wanted the smaller layer to always show a bit, so I did not put the foam tape at the very bottom, but rather a 1/2" or so up.  The most important pieces of foam will be the two that jut in at the top (where the red arrows are pointing).  These will stop the insert from sliding all the way upward because the strip of cardstock you added to the bottom of the smaller layer will catch on them as you pull upward 
After I had it all assembled, I removed the backing to the foam tape and adhered it to an evergreen card base.  It's a little difficult to explain, but if you watch the video link above, Mindy shows a really easy way to put it together.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
