A Baby Bottle shaker Card with Animal Outing

This week I have been making baby cards.
I have been on the look out for a different style of card, and when I came upon the template of the baby bottle on Pinterest ( here) I knew I had found it.


The template was printed directly onto thick whisper White card stock and cut out. The oval center was also cut out,  and that was used to trace a template for the DSP which would be added to the front.  On the inside some tulle was used to make a shaker for the card.  After the shaker was made the DSP was added to front and the edges trimmed and sponged with Basic Gray ink.

The kangaroo with the little Joey were coloured with watercolour pencils and a blender pen, fussy cut, and mounted on a 1 1/4" punched circle with dimensionals, and adhered to the lower card front .  Two giraffes were also coloured and fussy cut and mounted along the upper side keeping guard.

Braided Linen thread was wrapped around the neck of the bottle and tied into a bow and 3 tiny roses added to the outside edges.

The sentiment inside is from "Sweet Baby"

The card fits into a regular A2 envelope
