It's A Baby Shower!

Ubber-cute invitations, anyone?  LOL  My co-worker is having a baby and we're giving her a shower in a couple of weeks, so we needed an invitation for the occasion!  I starting thinking about what I could do, when it occurred to me that I hadn't done a 'spin-off of the flower pot' card in *forever*!  So here's what I came up with!

Invitation when closed...
Invitation when open!
 For this card, I used the New Arrival cart.  I cut the bottle from green cardstock at 7", then cut it again using the shadow feature from Kraft paper.  In shift mode I cut the nipple from a sand colored cardstock, and the bottle ring from brown cardstock.  

The cute little giraffe was cut at 3 1/4" in normal mode from brown cardstock, in shift mode using the goldenrod cardstock, and on the shadow feature from Kraft paper.  After layering  the top 2 layers together, I ran it through the Cuttlebug in the Swiss Dots folder (but just from the neck down).  Ran a little ink across the dots to bring out his little 'spots'.  Finally I placed it on the Kraft paper shadow and used pop dots to pop it up from the surface of the bottle.

One down....39 more to go!  I might have to get the Crafty Saturday Crew together for an assembly party!  TFL!
