Onsie Card

I made this super cute onsie card for my friends baby shower! She knows she's having a boy so I made it with Ballet Blue Card stock (one of the colors that's retiring at the end of the month). I cut it the long way to start with a card that's 4 1/4 by 11, then fold it in half. I embossed the front half of the card using the dots embossing folder in my Big Shot. Then I punched out the neck and legs with a 1 3/8" circle punch. I then punched out some scallop circle edges in white to make the leg and neck edges. Note: the easiest way to do this is to punch out the circle first, then you can center it inside the scallop circle punch and punch that out next. I cut in on the sides about 2 inches from the top and then cut it to the leg holes. I made myself a template so it will be easy to trace and make more later!

I used some striped grosgrain ribbon around the middle (also retiring) and then stamped a cute little whale from the Fox & Friends stamp set. This set was in the Occassions Mini. I punched the whale out with the 1 3/8 circle and then framed him with a scallop circle cut from Barely Banana cardstock (also retiring). The "new baby" words are from a really old stamp set I found in my retired stash!
