Hi everyone, I wanted to share a little gift I made up for my niece to give as a baby shower gift for her best friend. The baby’s nursery is in a jungle theme with a yellow and blue color scheme. I made a necktie onesie using a cut file located in the Silhouette Online Store, out of a cute fabric I found at Hancock Fabrics. The Silhouette Cameo cut the fabric beautifully. The Onesie was cut using the Cricut Imagine Stock Cut preloaded on the Imagine.
I really can’t remember the sizing I used for the neck ties… hum, should have written that down. I did use Heat N Bond to attach the necktie to the onesie.
The card is a standard A2 size card.
- Base is kraft Cardstock – all papers and images inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
- Yellow pattern paper printed from the Cricut Imagine Hopscotch Cartridge cut at 4×5.25
- Blue pattern paper printed from the same Cricut Imagine Hopscotch Cartridge cut at 3.75×5
- The onesie cut using basic white card stock, Image cut from the stock cuts pre loaded on the Cricut Imagine, maybe 3 inches… again, should have written it down
- I ran the onesie through the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder using my Cuttlebug
- With the blender tool used to ink the edges of the images and papers I lightly ran it over the raised dots to give a better look than stark white.
- I attached the fabric necktie to the onesie using Scotch Quick Dry adhesive
- The onesie is attached to the card base using foam squares
- The sentiment stamped using Color Box Brown Ink
We placed the card and onesie in a foldable cube found at Target. We filled the box with newspaper in the bottom to fill the space and added a few goodies to go with the onesie and card. Here’s what everything looked like.
Sippy cups, sleepers, take & toss forks and spoons, bibs, travel kit, take and toss snack bowls, baby lotion and baby powders.

Hi everyone! I had a baby shower to attend a little while back so I needed to make a card. The baby’s room theme happened to be jungle related. I used papers from the DWCV Safari Kids 8×8 pack to make this card. Believe it or not this card didn’t require any die cutting machine. Only my paper trimmer and atg gun!
Here it is!
I made this a 8 1/2 x 4 inch card.
- Cut a piece of DCWV textured green card stock 8 1/2 inches wide by 8 inches tall, scored in half and folded to make 8 1/2 x 4 inch card base. Distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz tool and inked edges with tea dye ink.
- Cut out the animal squares I wanted to use about just a bit smaller than a 2×2. Distressed and inked edges
- cut a piece of the animal print paper to mat each picture, these came out to be 2×2. distressed and inked edges.
- Attached the animal cut out to the animal print mat using pop dots.
- cut a piece of the striped background paper to about 3 1/2 by 8 1/4. Distressed and inked edges. Attached straight to the card base.
- Attached the matted animal squares to the striped paper with pop dots.
- wrapped brown embroidery floss around the bottom of the card crossing in the middle and taping to the inside of the card.
- used the “the adventure begins here” embellishment found in the Safari Kids 8×8 album kit to adhere to card on pop dots.
- I used two of the animal brads found in the kit as well, I cut the prongs off and used pop dots to attach to each side of the sentiment.
- to finish the card I punched holes in the corners of the striped paper using my crop a dile and placed 2 light green brads opposite two dark green brads, found in the kit too.
I made a quick envelope with a ribbon tie closure to place the card in as well.
