Hello!  For today’s tutorial, I have a sweet mini baby onesie card to share with you.  The card features the adorable Eline’s Onesie and Eline’s Baby Essentials die sets from Marianne Design. 

I have a few onesie dies, but this Eline’s Onesie is by far my favorite because this die set is so versatile.  In addition to creating it as a stand-alone card, it can also be use as a gift tag or even use each individual die pieces as embellishment on cards as well.  The possibilities are endless!

Tutorial:  Mini Baby Onesie Card

SUPPLIES: (stamps) C.C. Designs Rubber Stamp (retired) Baby Sentiment AR-1031  (die cut) Marianne Design Eline’s Onesie and Eline’s Baby Essentials (Bazzill cardstock) Marshmallow Chick, Robin’s Egg and Marshmallow (pattern paper) MFT’s Petite Plaid paper pack (tools) Sizzix Big Shot; cutting pads; paper trimmer; scoreboard (adhesive) foam square; glue; Velcro Brand sticky back hook & loop fastener

DIRECTION: 

  1. On a 4-1/4″x5-1/2″ white cardstock, die cut out the outer large onesie card.  Next, fold down the sleeve and score (as show in the diagram of the packaging insert).
  2. Die cut out the rest of the pieces:
    • TWO onesie single layers on white cardstock
    • ONE hanger in yellow
    • ONE set of decorative borders on plaid paper
    • FOUR blocks (2 yellow; 2 blue) and the BABY letters (white)
  3. Stamp sentiment onto one of the onesie layer and adhere that to the onesie card (from step 1).
  4. Adhere the hanger over the sentiment onesie layer.
  5. Prepare the TOP onesie single layer with plaid decorate borders and baby blocks.  Now, adhere the layer to the back of the folded sleeves.
  6. Score and close the bottom of the onesie with the Velcro sticky back hook & loop fastener.

TIPS & TRICKS

  1.  For a crisp, flat professional finished, use double sided adhesive tape or sheet to adhere your paper pieces together.
  2.  To remove unwanted adhesive off your cardstock, use the Thermoweb adhesive pick-up square.
  3.  Adhere your embellishments with foam tape for added dimension.
