For a newborn baby and a birthday

Hi, Janja here.
In the Mother's Day release we find beautiful dies which are also useful for other occasions.
I prepared a baby shaker card and a birthday card.

I used:
- CottageCutz dies: Mama Kangaroo & Joey, Mama Raccoon & Baby, Stitched Numbers, Balloons Variety, Sweet Love Borders, Spring Grass, Stitched Sewing Notions (button), Circle Set
- white card base: 4.25 x 3.35" (10,7 x 13,9 cm), folded
- patterned paper: 4 x 5.2" (10 x 13,2 cm)
- fun foam: 3.74 x 5" (9,5 x 12,6 cm)
- transparent foil
- white and colored cardstock
- a white pen
- Distress ink pads: Worn Lipstick, Vintage Photo, Hickory Smoke
- double-sided adhesive tape, self-adhesive pads, glue

Create A2 card base from a white cardstock. Cut a smaller layer from a patterned paper, and another one from a fun foam. Prepare a piece of transparent foil. 
Round the corners at the bottom. With the die cut the circle opening in a patterned paper, and in a fun foam. Stamp an inscription on a white card base.

Now die cut and assemble the Mama Kangaroo & Joey. This die is a perfect thing to help us welcome all those adorable little newborns. 
Also, prepare two white borders and a button. White and pink hearts will be used to fill the shaker area.

Attach Mama Kangaroo with self-adhesive pads.

For a birthday card, prepare a white card base. Cut patterned paper smaller than a card base. Stamp "Happy Birthday from all of us" in black on a patterned paper. Cut the grass from a green cardstock.

Now cut and assemble the central motif, number four and balloons. Cut off the second baby twice. 
Add dashes on balloons with a white pen. 
All my cutouts are made from colored cardstock that have the edges shadowed with Distress inks.

And we're at the end.

Have a nice day.

Both of these cards are beautifully done Janja- love your idea for using the dies other than for Mothers Day- the raccoon card is such a creative idea- and the baby shaker would be one of those keepsake cards- awesome work
