Happy Tutorial Tuesday morning. Lisa here. I am feeling better this week. Let's start with a shout out to our girl Katie. Hi Katie-Kate! Today I will show you my version of a Onesie card that will go perfectly with the new LITTLE RED WAGON TEMPLATE.
I paired it with the LITTLE RED WAGON SVG/PDF.
STAMPS: Baby Bundle
ACCESSORIES: Cuttlebug Metal Cutting Plate Adaptor, Clear Embossing Powder, Clear Crystal Stickers, Dimensional foam tape, Bone Folder, Ruler, Pencil, Heat Tool, Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities, Sharp Scissors, Small round corner punch, Cuttlebug, Paper Trimmer,
Now using the Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities Dies cut your neckline from the top using the fourth circle die from the smallest. (or whatever size you prefer). After cutting (will be centered along the top fold and about 3/4" down) then emboss your cut following the directions on your machine...I used my Cuttlebug and the Cuttlebug Metal Cutting Plate Adaptor in place of three sheets of cardstock (I just got this from Clear Dollar Stamps and I love it). You see embossing gives you a nice edge to your circle.
Now for the leg holes. Starting on the left side of the bottom of the card front...make two marks. One at 1 1/2" from the bottom and one at 1 3/8" from the left side. This is your guide for lining up your circle dies to cut the same on both sides.
Now place your card on the bottom plates of your cutting sandwich. Align your circle die and hold in place using a piece of scotch tape and a tip from our very own Katie Renz (take a piece of the Scotch tape and put it on your jeans and lift it up and put back down 4 or so times to loosen its stickyness). Then place on your plaper and die. So after you cut it will lift off without tearing your paper.
Time to get your pencil and ruler again. Now mark at 1 3/4" from the top fold on both sides. Then 1/2" in from that mark, draw a line. Now from that 1/2" mark draw a line from there to the top of your leg hole on each side and use your paper cutter or scissors to cut out along the lines you just made.
Here is what our onesie looks like. Isn't it cute. Now it is ready to decorate. I'm going to decorate it to match my wagon I made using the LITTLE RED WAGON SVG/PDF.
Before we stamp our sentiment background...we are going to make a light pencil guide. So I first found the center between the bottom of the neckline circle and the top of the leg holes and from side to side. My sentiment measures 1 3/4" in length. So I measured 7/8" from the center on both sides and made lines. Those are our side guide lines for stamping the sentiment. Remember to make LIGHT pencil lines you can easily erase when you are done.
Stamp the sentiment in the center (that you marked). Next stamp your sentiment above this one lining up the shape of the polymer along your side marks and with the bottom aligned with the top of the first sentiment.
Stamp the cute little onesie from the set BABY BUNDLE using the VersaMark watermark stamp pad. Quickly sprinkle clear embossing powder over the entire image and gently tap off the excess onto a scrap piece of paper then pour back into your container. Heat emboss using your heat tool (not a hair dryer).
Here is what it looks like when paired with the LITTLE RED WAGON SVG/PDF. Our very own Stacy Morgan designed this adorable template. I had fun making this gift card holder for a baby shower. The onesie card works perfectly with it.
Thank you for tuning in this Tuesday. See you next time- Lisa
