Paper Piecing Technique on Baby Card Using “Cutest Onesie” from Stampin’ Up!

baby boy card front made with the cutest onesie

I made this cute baby boy Congratulations card on a recent Facebook Live Video.  I used the Stampin’ Up! bundle called Cutest Onesie, which has a stamp set and a die set that cut out the stamped images. Plus it has a few extra pieces too like the sweet little hanger on this card, a rattle, some numbers, and also the pocket for the onesie.

Plus you can see a list of all the supplies I used at the end of this post.

I also made a baby girl version of the card using Moody Mauve as the “pink” colour (see below for the baby girl card).  I know you don’t have to use blue for a boy or pink for a baby girl, but I loved these colours with Crumb Cake.

baby boy cutest onesie sideMisty Moonlight is a bit a darker blue but still has some light tones and it matched the Designer Series Paper perfectly.  I paired Misty Moonlight on the baby boy card with a small Night of Navy cardstock border.  And I used Basic White for the hanger and the greeting and the card base.  I love having a card base that you can write in. The greeting and the little heart all come from the same Cutest Onsie stamp set.

I used some of the cute Adhesive-Backed Metallic Gems for the snaps in the bottom of the Onesie.

I used the gold colour to match the Crumb Cake colour.  Also on the onsie, I used a Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Write Marker to colour in some of the lines on the baby outfit. I love the technique of stamping on the Designer Series Paper and then cutting out the image.  This stamping technique is called Paper Piecing.  On the baby boy onesie, the Designer Series Paper looks like a knitted fabric.  And on the baby girl onesie, I picked a beautiful pattern with a floral image.

I then used the Brushed Brass Butterflies from Stampin’ Up! to add an image to the front of the baby girl outfit and also a few as accents on the card.

The shapes on the baby cards, the circle and the banner for the greeting, were die cut from the Stylish Shapes dies from Stampin’ Up!

Which version of my baby card, made with the Stampin’ Up’s Cutest Onesie Bundle do you prefer–the baby boy or the baby girl card?
