Ruffly Baby Onesie

It's hot. hot. hot. here...and to escape the heat I have been holed up in my craft room for two days.  I have the air on, two little fans blowing from each side of the room and still sweat is pouring down my forehead.  I painted a pretty picture, didn't I?  Well, I also have a very cute little card to share today that should wipe that image completely from your mind.  My daughter Carly needed a baby card for a co-worker who is having a baby girl in a few weeks.  Baby cards are my favorite kind of card to make and especially pink ones!
I hand cut the onesie from a master pattern I keep for just these occasions.  I dressed it up with some PTI Sweet Blush Patterned paper and added the three rows of ruffles with a Lil Inker Stitched Scallop  Border die.   I also added a cute bow for this fancy little baby using two of the Lil Inker Gift Bow Topper die cuts.   That die sure can do a lot more than just make the top of a package look good.  I added a little lace trim, some pearls and a small Lil Inker Sunshine die which looks a lot like a cute flower when it is cut from patterned paper.   I always worry when I make cards for Carly to give and make a second card just to cover my bases, but she loving this one.  I'll share the second card with you tomorrow.

This is just beyond adorable. Love the mix of pink patterns and die cuts. So many adorable details, but those ruffles take the cake. They remind me of those ruffly diaper covers you see for little girls. and, those pearls all over, and the lace--just too sweet.

You always make the most charming baby cards! This couldn't be more adorable! Those ruffles, the lace & pearls look so sweet. And I love how you used the Lil' Inker sun and the bow topper. Carly's friend will be thrilled to receive this!

Look at all those ruffles - you make the best baby cards. I'm picking apart the elements - I see the scalloped border, and the gift bow, and the sunshine..really clever way to multipurpose your dies!

Oh, this is so darling! I love it!
