Baby Cards

Well I decided to make a couple of baby cards today to round out my stash of cards. You never know when you are going to need a card so it’s always better to have one on hand for all scenarios.

I made these cute cards for little girls so I guess I’ll have to make some boy cards now as well. Anyways, these cards were made with card stock cut at 4 1/4 x 11. I scored the card at 5 1/5 on the long side for a clean fold. For both types of cards, the process is similar.

For the dress – Before doing anything, I cut a piece of the DSP for the pattern of the dress and adhered it to the front of the card. I then used my 2″ punch to cut the neckline. I cut the arms at 1 1/2″ down and 3/4″ inward then cut from there to the bottom corner of the card. The neckline is made from a pearlized doily which makes for a cute neckline then added the ribbon to the front of the dress…. just to make it pretty. I haven’t decided yet but I may change the hem of the dress to a scalloped edge.

For the Onsie – This was also going to be a dress as well but then decided to try something different. I embossed the front of the card to add some interest before cutting the neckline and arms as per the dress above. To make it look more like a onsie, the angle of cut from the arm to the corner was shortened by about 1 1/2″ just to make it wider. I then used my 2″ punch to make the leg openings. 1 1/2 ” from the bottom and 1″ in from the side. ribbon was added to this card as well and I am pretty sure I will add something to the neckline for this card as well.

I hope you like them.
