Baby Boy Onesie
Good morning! I am running a bit behind with my Ruby's Rainbow post today. (Is anybody else running behind? This is always such a busy time of year!) Anyway...back to the challenge.... Debbie has chosen our challenge for this fortnight and it is...shaped cards! What a fun idea...the possibilities are endless!
I decided to make a baby card; I used the onesie die from the PTI Shape Ups series. It turned out to be a quick and easy way to create a shaped card:
1. Simply diecut the card base (there is a dotted line on the die to show where the fold should be placed).
2. Diecut the full onesie to adhere to the base.
3. Embellish as desired.
I let the cute DP do the work for me and embellished simply with a snippet of ribbon, and a button. At the bottom I used small punched circles to resemble snaps. I layered 2 punches together to create dimension.
***I thought the die was fun and easy, but I did run into a small snag.... I wanted to flip the card base so that the "ugly" side would be towards the DP and not be seen. I don't know about you, but my Cuttlebug plates get really scarred and all those marks are transferred to the back of my diecuts. I found that the die is not symmetrical on each side, so I couldn't line up the cardbase and the top layer if the base was flipped. I hope I am making sense...LOL. It must be my OCD coming into play...I like my cards neat and tidy...front and back!
Paper: G.P. 110, Doodlebug DP
