Today marks the final day of Celebration Week! It has been and thanks being a part of it. We had a card about me, a couple graduation cards, wedding card….What better way to end the week by celebrating a baby shower!
I cut a 10” circle out of chip board for the base and covered it with patterned paper.
Then I added a little lace around the base with a glue gun. Warning, use a tool if you can because the glue is HOT!
Here I took a tube from wrapping paper and cut it down to approximately 13” and cut the bottom to support the diapers. I added hot glue to adhere it to the base. Inside the support tube, there are wipes and diapers inside.
I rolled each diaper and added them to build the cake. Once I had the form of the cake, I used Electric Blue glimmer mist to make the white ribbon blue since I did not have any on hand. I cut shapes from the Nursery Tails Cricut Imagine cartridge at three inches and Designer’s Calendar Cricut cartridge. The “It’s A Boy” cuts on the center tier are 4”.
For the top of the cake, I used the Sizzix Create-A-Bow die. Disclaimer: use a large brad, not mini brads to hold the pieces together. The paper says It’s A Boy.
Here is the final product before adding cellophane:
Standard A2 card. For the background paper or walls in this case, I used yellow Bazzill cardstock and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I also used DCWV Nana’s Kids for the pattern paper. The scallop is Bazzill Edge or the crown molding. I added a little brown cardstock as the floor.
The crib and chair I cut on my Gazelle since I did not have a rocking chair or crib on a cartridge. That is what I love about the Gazelle and Make-the-Cut software. If I don’t have what I need, I can find an image, trace it and cut it out! I also made a window pane in the program. I cut the moon and stars from the Pooh and Friends cartridge because I like how those looked on that particular cartridge.
I took a punch to make the clock pieces and hand cut the hands. I used the same It’s A Boy pattern paper used in the diaper cake so the card will have a similar element. I put a brad in the center of the clock.
To finish off the card, I added two teddy bear brads; one at the foot of the crib and one in the rocking chair. I hand cut the blanket, valence, mattress inside the crib and seat cushions.
I might make a few changes to the card, but overall, it works.
