Baby Girl Card

If you are a follower of my blog, then you may remember my little dress card made with a template from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  When I purchase that one, I got a few others including this onesie template.    Link to onesie template site:  
I think you know my blogging buddy Diane keeps me in the loop with these great templates which I see on her blog HERE.  

I reduced the size to fit on the card base. I don't have SVG files; instead I fussy cut the template.  I didn't make a folding card with the pattern so I pieced together the back of the onesie to show along the bottom edge, using coordinating paper. 

You may also remember that both of my daughters tried their hand at mom's hobby and decided to give it up.  In the process, I was the recipient of all their stash. So I broke out dd2's DCWV Nursery paper pad to make the onesie.  The pink card is from one of my fave stores, Prairie Art Stamps.  I used the Cuttlebug folder on the card front for the embossed word background. Making Memories flower brads also from dd2.  Ric rac is from an auction (got a whole box full).  And I can't believe I dug out my eyelets for the bottom of the onesie.  I saw eyelets on the template sample and just couldn't resist copying--too cute!

Entering these challenges:
All Sorts Challenge #159 Paper Piecing/Piercing 
I pieced the onsie.  I pierced for the brad flower buttons and the eyelet snaps. 

Vicki's Cheerful StampPad Challenge #45 In the Garden
because one of the highlights of the day is carrying around my granddaughter and looking at all the flowers and critters in the backyard--birds, squirrels, rabbits.  On a recent stroller ride, we even saw deer run through the McDonald's drive-thru--yes deer in town!!!!!

My frustrations continue.  Still having trouble with my Droid phone camera.  And I dropped an open jar of Claudine's matte medium on the carpet this morning.

What a cute card! I love the ric rac and the fact that you put it on the card instead of making it the card, genius! Thanks for the shout outs for Lindsay and for me, you are always so sweet!
I don't know about gel matte medium but I do know that Carburetor Cleaner will remove red nail polish from a pale beige carpet. (Ask me how I know) If all else fails this may work. (It smells like gasoline and stinks up the house but it will air out in a day or two.

Love it. I have such a hard time using those embossing folders, never seems to look as good to me while I'm trying to create a card. Your baby onesie card is adorable.
