Its a boy

This week I am playing around with baby cards as a very old friend has just had a much wanted baby boy after many years of heart ache. I have made lots of cards and I am still undecided which to send as I want it to be very special for them. Here is one of my cards, made for CBN, with some simple instructions. Materials • A4 cardstock • Patterned paper (G45:Little Darlings) • Ink (SU) • Ribbon (SU) • Bakers twine (SU) • Buttons • Embellishments: G45 stickers Instructions Template I began by making myself a template. I hand drew a onesie shape out roughly, then refined the lines. Once I was happy with the shape, I scanned it, enlarged it and printed it out twice onto a piece of A4 card. I have attached one of then. Save, enlarge, print. I cut out the shapes. I covered the back piece in spotty paper. I added a spotty paper to the bottom half of the front piece and a vintage text/ image piece to the top half. I inked all the edges. To decorate I added bakers twill, ribbon, buttons and stickers to the front. I added a decorative strip to the back and another sticker. Once happy with the front and back onesies, add glue above the line area on the template. Stick them together to finish. And there you go, a very quick and easy baby card that looks adorable.
