I've never made a baby romper card, but when I saw this one that Cindy Malone made . . . I just had to try it! Thank you, Cindy! I started out trying to explain how I did everything and then I gave up . . . got the camera out and made this mini tutorial. A picture is worth a 1,000 words, right?
First I punched out three 1 1/4" holes from three scraps of Bella Rose DSP. The punched out holes I discarded.
Then, I flipped my Scallop Circle Punch upside down and going back over the punched out hole in my Bella Rose scrap I centered the Scallop Circle evenly over the punched hole opening.
When punched out, I was left with a perfectly even scallop circles with holes in them that I will use for the collar and the leg openings.
I used dots of Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to adhere the circles onto my card as shown. I started the shape by measuring down 1 1/2" down for each sleeve and made a pencil line towards the center on each side for 3/4 of an inch. I did not make the long pencil line to define the shape until after I punched out the collar and the leg openings.
To punch out the opening, I just went back in with my 1 1/4" Circle Punch flipped upside down and punched out the three openings.
Here's another picture showing how I went back in over the scallop circle ring to punch out the collar opening.
The next step is to trim off the overhang off the scalloped rings.
Then I took my ruler and drew in the lines that defined the shape of my card. Once this long triangle is cut out, you have your romper! To make the sleeves, I just used the Scallop Edge Punch on the Bella Rose DSP and cut it down to size.
