adorable baby cards February 3, 2008

Let’s just say that I’ve been featuring some of my idols this weekend.  Remember, I have so many and I do apologize…I can’t get to everyone 🙂  I find something unique in everything I view.  I just had some extra time this weekend due to not having to work, so I thought I would play a lot.

Another idol is Lauren Meader.  I have been a long time follower of her work from way back.  I love her style and how she comes up with the most awesome stuff.  I also admire her from a mothering point of view….she is amazing!

On Lauren’s blog this week, she showcased the cutest onesie cards that you can view here.  She didn’t stop there.  She made a onesie bouquet for her friend who just delivered a baby girl.  My mouth dropped.  I had to try the onesie cards… I won’t even attempt the bouquet this weekend.  I am forever running to the store to buy a baby card (usually on the way to the shower or to see the new arrival…I’m so bad).

Here are the cards I made:

My friends baby shower is in mid February with a green Sweet Pea theme.  So I cut and mounted the retired hostess SU! set Event Full because it had a cute sweet pea image.

Baby Boy Onesie Cards:

I think I’m good for a while with these four cards.  And Lauren was so right.  Once you figure it all out, it doesn’t take long to make these.  You can find the directions in her blog post featuring her onesie cards.  And, congrats on PTI design team:)

  17. Jill Kirk Says:

    I am lovin’ these!!!!! I’ve seen several idea’s come close but not nearly as cute as these. I’m totally copying!!!!!! Thanks!!

    I loooove the onesie cards! I seem to be at a time in my life where EVERYONE is having a baby (I just had one too – he’s nearly 6 months old!). I gave it a go, trying to make my own onesie card, but I COULD NOT get the circle punch through 2 layers of card stock at the top fold! Did you have trouble with this? Any hints? I wonder if it was because I tried SU! Naturals White instead of Whisper White, and I know the Naturals is a little heavier weight. I’d love to have more explicit directions for these (like how to get the leg holes similarly placed!). Thanks so much for sharing! Love your blog!

  19. Lisa Banks Says:

    What Beautiful work… Always!!! Love this.

  20. jeanne nielsen Says:

    Very cute cards! I especially love the Sweet Pea card — it looks like you used different sized brads to embellish the pea pod? Very very cute!! Jeanne

  21. MJ these all came out so cute.
    Love each and every one!

  22. Krista Says:

  23. Taylor Says:

    WOW!! These are sooo adorable, Mary Jo!! I love how you used the scallop punch to accent the arm and leg openings! And the cute little rhinestones as the bottom buttons… so clever! YOU ROCK!

  24. Tracy B Says:

    These are just adorable. I love the colors you used! Thanks for sharing the link for the tutorial!

  25. […] So many questions February 12, 2008 Filed under: my collection — mjalbright @ 8:00 am I got several emails regarding these cute baby onesie cards that you can view here. […]

  26. Elizabeth Says:

    Those are cute little cards! I have been making onesie cards for about two years with my local scrapbook Accucut die. Used teddy bears and flowers in the center…hadn’t thought of the sweet pea or boat. Cool idea!
