Sleeping Baby Stamp Set Onesie Card

Today I am up on the Picket Fence Studios blog with this cute little onesie baby card.  It is really easy to make this shape, I have all the instructions below.

 To get the onesie shape I made a few cuts.  Start with a 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of cardstock.  Fold in half like you would for a regular card.

1.  Sleeves:  Measure on the sides of the card where the sleeves will go, from the top corners down to 1-1/2".  Make a tiny pencil mark.  From that pencil mark measure 3/4" in towards the chest.  Cut on that 3/4" line.
2.  Sides: From that cut 3/4" line, use a ruler to draw a line diagonally to the bottom corners of the card and then cut on that line.
3.  You now have a onesie with sleeves.  Use a corner rounder on the sleeves to round and soften the sharp corners.
4.  Legs: I used a 1-1/2" circle punch to add the leg holes.  After you make the punch, use your scissors to slightly straighten the crotch area so it look more like how the leg holes should look.
5.  Neck:  I used the same hole punch to create the neck opening.  
6.  Now it is time to decorate.

 I stenciled the roses and leaves onto the light pink cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks (Aged Mahogany and Bundled Sage) and the Life Changing Blender Brushes. If you have not tried those brushes, please do.  They are so awesome for stenciling and ink blending!

I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock measuring approximately 2-1/8" x 1".  I hand cut the tag shape and punched a hole to attached to the ribbon sash. 

Add jewels, pearls or little buttons to the top.

  1. This is so adorable, Becky. Two new babies on the way for this family this year. Do you have a diaper bag version of one of your purse patterns? I would love to see one. Thanks.
