Cutie Pie Onesie

I've seen lots of onesie, tee shirt and dress cards. I thought the Rubber Romance Cutie Pie line would make great onesie cards. So I gave it a try, it was so quick and easy, I wanted to share the project with you.I know there are many templates out there, but I decided to just wing it. I have plenty of onesies in my house so I took a look at one and free handed a template. I then traced it on my desired cardstock. The fold is at the top and that is where the shoulders go (you don't cut this part) so the card will stay together. Here I've used PTI Spring Rain cardstock.
Next I embossed my card with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
To add some decorative trim I cut some scalloped circles, then cut out the center with a regular straight edged circle.
I layered the scalloped trim around the leg holes and neck opening. After adhering them, I turned the card over and trimmed off the excess from the back.
Now, for the fun part! I added some eyelet (snaps) along the bottom edge. Then I stamped my Rubber Romance Cutie Pie Owl on white cardstock, colored him with some copics, then added stickles. He is mounted on a scalloped square. Isn't this a fun and easy project? These would make great thank you notes for a new mom, and it wouldn't take too long to make up a set.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you give a onesie card a try.
