Welcome Otis!

My First Onesie Card!


My husband's brother Gary and his Wife Megan just had their 3rd child. They live in Australia though - so we don't get to see them. They met while Megan was here teaching sailing, so I wanted to use the sailboat from the new SU set Nursery Necessities. This is my first onesie card made using Lauren Meader's tutorial found here.

The sailboat is stamped in brocade blue on white, then stamped again in certainly celery on a 2nd piece of white. without reinking I stamped it again onto the patterned piece so I could have a template to cut the large sail out. The celery sail and the patterned sail are then glued onto the brocade image and the whole thing is cut out. In hindsight, I should have just stamped the blue boat directly onto the card.... duh! Anyone want to make one of these at a stamp camp?
