new-baby card tutorial

*post edit-the link should work now, sorry about that.

So, lots of new babies coming this year. I was in card making mode when I strolled over to A Little Hut and was inspired by her easter egg card to make this fun and simple card. I thought I would spread the love with a simple tutorial-so you can make one too! Click here to download the card. Print it on cardstock and cut it in half (5.5" or hamburger style)-because two will print per page. Then cut out the onesie carefully with an exacto knife.

Next cut strips of scrapbooking paper at angles measuring at least 4 1/2 inches long. I like to stick with a color family or contrasting colors in this case (pink and green). It makes it a little more cohesive. Line all your little strips of paper up and tape them down to a piece of paper measuring 4 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches.

Then take this paper with your series of strips and double stick tape it to the back of the card so they show through the onsie. Glue would work too. Just make sure to only go along the edges. Now fold your card in half and wala-you are done.

If you click on the link and then click on the LONG link that comes up on the new page-that should take you right to it. But I'll see what I can do.
