Baby Shower Diaper Cake/Card

I made this daiper cake for a friend of mine who is having her first baby in July (wow 4 weeks away). They don't know what they are having but they have the nursey set up as a jungle theme. I made the diaper cake with that same theme in mind.

I used Create A Critter for all the cut outs.
Monkey 3"
Alligator 1.5"
Giraff 4"
Lion 2.3"
Elephant 2"
Zebra 2.5"
I put googly eyes on all the animals and I cuttlebuged the Alligator. Yellow ribbon from the dollar store. I used 66 diapers ( I think I can't remember). For about a month I bought stuff to put on the cake. There was two bibs ( "I love mommy", "I love daddy"), 2 spoons, 4 wash clothes, a bottle,  8 rings,  frog teether, 4 stuffies and a "Baby on Board" sign.

This is the card that I made to go with the present.
Here is what I used:
New Arrival Cart.: welded two diaper shirts together cut at 5" and one extra diaper shirt cut at 4.87" width and 5" height ( I used my gypsy and clicked off the little chain so that I could change the width and height seperate from each other) I cuttlebuged the single diaper shirt and added green ribbon
                             hanger cut at 5"
Just Because Cards Cart.: background for the envelope cut at 6.5"
Plantin Schoolbook Cart.: "New Arrival" cut at 1", "Tammara" cut at 1.3"
I also used my I-Rock for the little gems on the bottom of the card, for the envelope I used Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabber in Sunshine Yellow and just dabbed and swirled it onto a plain white envelope.

She really liked it as the shower was at the end of May. I plan on making a mini album when she has the baby (that way I can make it boyish or girly and not neutral). She doesn't know it yet though!!

Have a great day!!
