Nappy Cake

This is the little project, I made two weeks ago. It's been patiently waiting in the craft room for the arrival of little Alice. As I didn't know the sex of the baby, I went for the bold colours, Taken with Teal, Only Orange and Summer Sun. These colours also matched the colours of the little animals printed on the Nappies.

Stamp sets used are Wild about You and Nursery Necessities

Inside the cake is a large tub of baby Talc, then a pot of cotton buds on top of that, with the nappies layered around each item.

I also made some baby announcements, stupidly I thought I had taken a photo of them, but I hadn't, so I am unable to share. I do however have a set made in blue (I made up both colours, you see) so I will take a photo of them tomorrow and share.

Then there was this card...........

Not Stampin' Up! I know, but I couldn't resist using this cute bear.

OMG Carol this is gorgeous.

We have a new baby due in my hubby's family in August and this would be perfect to add to the baskets we are preparing as our gift to the young couple.
I do hope you don't mind if I do something similar.
