For the card front, I decided to go with a shaker rattle in pink. I die cut a circle frame using 2 circle dies and made the shaker part. I die cut a tiny circle for the handle part. I added a tiny bow. I die cut a piece of white card stock with one of the dies from the Winnie & Walter Georgette die set. I adhered it on to an A2 piece of pink card stock. I adhered the rattle on to it and stamped the sentiment Congratulations from the Brutus Monroe - Sharon's Script stamp set. Now when you open the card:
It's a pop-up crib on the inside :) Here's how I made the pop-up crib part - I cut thin strips of Brutus Monroe - Brown Butter card stock in few different lengths. Here's the first one, which is for the horizontal piece.
Here's a bunch of small ones, which are for the vertical rods.
Here's 4 of a little longer ones, which are for the corner pieces. These are double the thickness and scored in the middle, lengthwise.
I started by adhering the corner pieces on to one of the horizontal piece, like this.
Then I adhered the vertical bars to the horizontal frame.
I adhered the other horizontal piece to all the vertical bars.
Here's a closer look at it.
I die cut pieces of patterned paper with the same border die from the Winnie & Walter - Georgette die set and adhered it on to the inside of the crib, to imitate the crib bedding. I adhered pieces of patterned paper on to the inside of the card, to imitate wall paper. I then adhered 2 sides of the crib on to the 2 sides of the inside of the card. To make the mobile, I die cut the flowers and butterflies using the dies from Karen Burniston - Accordion Die set on the Brutus Monroe - Watermelon glitter stock. I used a thread to hang them from the pop-up part at the top. I die cut a 'H' using the Whimsy Stamps - Alphabet dies, for the first letter of the baby's name.
Here's another look at the card front:
