Baby Girl Onesie Card - My Way

Hi Blog Friends,
Welcome to my first ever blog! I am so humbled !! (Still learning how to work out this whole posting saga...LOL It's kind of learning on the job any hints and tips will be greatly appreciaed- we crafters love that!)
(What do you think about my homepage photo? leave me a comment and be a follower, I will make a full posting of the project, including more photos and you could win similar Blog Candy! when we reach 100)

This is my very first posting of my creations! I have received many requests to see my creations, I have created few personal projects for friends and family in the past which I will be sharing with you all, so i'm starting with a very simple one, I made a coordinating gift voucher holder with this card, unfortunately, i didn't take a photo (Not to worry, you will be seeing different gift card holders in future!) your comments will be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

Here goes!
                   New Baby Girl Card-Onesie!
Based on my profession, I thought it’s only fair to start with this sweet lil onesie! As a Midwife, I have seen so many new born baby cards in my life. I sometimes see 2 or 3 of same card! A Midwife colleague of mine had a baby girl and I thought I would share the card that I made for her with you!
The card had to be big enough for lots of well-wishers! (Here I used 2 A4 Cards or one A3 if you preferred) I have designed this particular onesie, based on the ones my daughter had as a baby/toddler many moons ago! A little wonky, due to my bad shoulder, ( This would look better and easily achieved with a grand calibur dies don’t you think?)

You can see the envelope at the base of the card--- HUGE, huh! 

I printed two shades of pink polka dot papers, cut out the decorated part with my Spellbinders scalloped circle for the neck and the thigh areas, punched out two strips of same paper with Martha Stewart lacey edge punch.  Cut out my flowers using very old Spellbinders flowers, layered them and inked around the edges for extra dimension. I used two different sizes of ribbon, layered the smaller one on top of the wider one, tied my bow and attached my flower in the middle with a bling in the middle of the flower!

Here's the close-up :)
I used Lauren Meader's MTME- New arrival stamp fo my focal point
Here is the back of the card:
I personalised this part with My Craft Studio graphics programme, so easy to achieve! I printed it out on an A4 Crafters companion white luxury centura pearl cards and then went on to cut out my onesie.
See the Button Embellishment! below

I cut out the pink polka dot paper using Spellbinders circle scalloped die, cut in half, attached it with glue, giving it a small frilly look!
i f you have made a New baby card, leave me a link with your comment, would love to see it!

Thanks for stopping by! always like to hear from you!!

     Bye for now

Well Bim this is gorgeous for a first posting. I did look yesterday but didn't have enough time to comment sorry. What an innovative idea and so much nicer than the usual cards they use for new baby. I can't wait to see what else you produce now. Good luck.
I have been card making all evening and am so thrilled with the outcome. I will have to take some photos and email to you then you can let me know what you think, they are my first attempt for nearly 3months.
Well keep up the good work. I have you on google reader now and it will tell me when you post so I can keep up to date with you.
All the best Linda
