Sweet Baby

I had a baby shower to go to and I made this super cute diaper cake for the Mom-to-Be.  The baby's name is going to be Olivia so I covered a wooden "O" with a fun chevron paper using spray adhesive to adhere is and my craft knife to cut around the edges.  I also adhered green glitter paper and a pink patterned paper to some wooden butterflies and then hot glued little tiny baby clothespins to the back so they could be clipped on to the cake in different areas.  I didn't get a picture of them by themselves, but the little bear has on the cutest little butterfly slippers that are really for the baby.  So cute!!  To finish it off, I did wrap the entire thing in a clear Easter basket "bag" and tied it up with the rest of that pink polka dotted ribbon.
 Of course, I had to make a matching card to go along with it.  I used this adorable bear stamp and colored her up to match the stuffed animal.  I used the same color combo on the card as on the cake and even used the same chevron paper to tie it all together.  I didn't have the right color pink card stock, so I sponged the edges of my white stock with a pink ink.  It's tough to see in the photo, but I also stamped the bear and a sentiment ("sweet baby") on the envelope along with little trio of hearts.
Oh!  I just love these two little bears. : )
