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
Embellies: PTI Button/DMC Floss, White Grosgrain Ribbon
Extras: PTI Shape Ups Onesie Die, EK Success Round Punch

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's creations.  What will you make?

I am also entering my card in the Craft Room Challenge: Punches and Diecuts.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is SO cute! I love that adorable paper - I have the matching stickers ;)
My plates get really scarred too - especially now that our Walmart stopped carrying them! If I have to drive an hour to replace them, and I was already slow at buying new ones....yep, you can imagine :)
