The Paper Shelter #593 ~ Sweet Birthday Wishes

  Hello crafting friends and welcome to this week's challenge

Team A - our challenge this week is 
~ Yummy Delights ~ 

Using A Curious Cake digi & the A Curious Cake Paper Pack I created this card. 
Doesn't this cake look yummy? I thought it just perfect for our challenge this week.

I love that the papers go so well together and with the cake colours. It makes it so easy to put together 😀  The card design is from Silhouette. 

This pic shows how the card actually stands.  I added a few white hearts to go with the white greeting.  The Happy Birthday is from an unbranded die (gift from crafty friend 😀, thank you).  I cut it out 5 times and adhered all the layers together to give it dimension. 

Here is a close up of this yummy cake.  I printed the cake onto photo paper for an extra crisp image.  I also cut it out five times to give it dimension. 

I'm having a problem with my Silhouette.  My cuts on photo paper are slighter smaller than on regular cardstock.  I don't change any of the settings are sizing - just print it on photopaper and print it on cardstock.  I cut them both and the one is smaller than the other which makes it really hard to cut layers and adhere them together.  I'm having to print and cut the image 5 times (a waste in my opinion) in order to get it right.   I'm sure it's user error, but I can't seem to find any information on this problem.  If any of you lovely crafters knows what I'm doing wrong, I'd love it if you would leave your advice/instructions as a comment below.
Thanks bunches in advance!

This card is 5" x 7" which when folded flat, fits perfectly into an A7 envelope.
