Sweet Baby Onesie

I love the inspiration I get from reading Lauren Meader's blog. A while back she posted some baby onesie cards that were so cute! She has a tutorial for them here. I didn't use the tutorial to make mine so mine is a little different, but I think both versions are such a cute idea. Mine just looks a little more like a onesie dress with the way it flares out more. Anyway, the onesie is made to be the same size as a regular A2 card. I used Papertrey's Green Thumb and Mixed Messages stamp sets for the strawberry and the sentiment. I masked the sleeves, collar, and where the snaps are and sponged Palette ink directly onto my card. My punches has a hard time punching through the Papertrey cardstock so next time I would use a lighter weight cardstock for the base. I ended up cutting the collar by hand after my punch marked the area for me. I scored the sleeves and bottom with my scorepal. I love how the little eyelets at the bottom look like snaps and really complete the card. These would make the most adorable baby annoucements.

Recipe
Stamps: Green Thumb, Mixed Messages: Papertrey Ink
