Baby Onsie Tutorial

This Baby Onsie card is all the rage right now!!!! Isn't it adorable??? I was given one by Lisa K and fell in LOVE!

Stamps: So Many Scallops; Full of Life; Background Basics (stars)
Ink: Mellow Moss
Cardstock: Mellow Moss; Whisper White
Accessories: Scallop Punch; Moss Taffeta; Dimensionals; 1 3/8" Circle Punch

Cut cardstock 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" - Score at 5 1/2" and fold in half.

Make yourself a little template out of a cereal box that looks like this. The fold is at the top:

Stamp up your card front:

Using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch - punch out a hald circle in the top folded edge of your card for the neck hole. Put a mark on your circle punch to show a half circle:

Punch out holes for each leg by centering the punch on each bottom corner like this:

Now your card will look like this:

Punch out a 3/4 scallop for neck and legs (3 of them):

Put adhesive around the very edge of your 3/4 scallop and attach to your leg and neck holes:

Turn your card to the back - use the 1 3/8" circle punch to punch out the white cardstock:

With scissors - trim off the little white pieces that are sticking out:

This is what your card looks like now - repeat this process for all three scallops.

Tie Taffeta Ribbon around card front and layer image over top in the center of the chest area with Dimensionals. See 1st photo for finished card.
