Onesie Baby Card

I have seen many "onesie" cards in the past, but I have never made one before. But, I thought it would be perfect for my niece. She is expecting her first baby in September and we are going to a shower for her tonight. She has done the baby's room (to be called Madison) in pink and brown, hence the color scheme for the card.

My sister was at my house for a few days, so we made a card together. Very fun! (She has some stamping things, but hasn't used them yet. I'm trying to "push" a little bit! LOL!) I didn't have a pattern, but it wasn't hard to make. I used circle Nestabilities to draw the curved edges to cut out, then used the matching scalloped Nestabilities for the trim. The patterned paper is from a Die Cuts With a View stack and the stickers are, too. We used an EK Success punch for the flowers and a Studio G punch for the letters, which were stamped with a Studio G stamp set. The flowers with letter centers are mounted on foam squares. We added eyelets for the snaps.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

You did a great job making your own pattern. Shaped cards are always a little more special. :)
