Our Project of the month for April is a cute baby all in one shaped card

We've been playing around with ideas for cards to welcome a new baby for a while as I was due to become an Auntie again in April.  However baby had very different ideas and decided she would put in an appearance mid January - 12 weeks early!!! She weighed just 3lb 1oz and was tiny.  After spending 6 weeks in NICU she's now home and well, astounding the nursing staff by piling on the pounds every week - she's over 10lbs now !!!

Anyway, this was one of the cards we came up with.  A really easy and quick card to make to welcome the new arrival.

You will need:

  • Start off by decorating your card blank. We chose to chalk the white textured blank with pink chalk.
  • Highlight the stitching on the vest with a fine tipped marker.
  • Add three eyelet peel offs to the bottom of the vest.  These are the poppers.
  • Chalk the edges of a blank tag and hand write your greeting, or if you wish, use a peel off sticker.
  • Thread some craft cord through the hole in the tag, and then thread the cord onto a large needle.
  • Push the needle carefully through the sleeve of the vest an tie off the cord with a knot.  Trim the cord.
  • Decorate the baby vest with embellishments of your choice.
  • Sit back and await the new arrival!
