Can you believe this is my first Onesie card? About time already, hey? ;o) This shaped Onesie card is made from Hero Arts digital image set & can be used on the front of a card, as it is above, or it can stand nicely on its own, if you prefer:
1... Digital stuff: KIT from Hero Arts (+a free digi for the tag)
2...create a dimensional onesie shaped card from a digital image
3...Cheap tricks: paper scoring waffle texture & distressing
4...make the sparkly embossed "Priceless!" tag
5...more tutorials (a link to the mini tut. for the scallop)
This was for a digi challenge atsponsored by

...create the dimensional onesie
(a shaped card from a digital image)
A little fiddling in Photoshop turned the onesie image
from Hero Arts Special Delivery digital set into a dimensional card:
I used Photoshop to create these pieces:
For this backside, I wanted some of the image details, but not all, so I just quickly erased a little of them in Photoshop. Ya gotta love the flexibility of digital!
(no need to alter that digitally at all; just cut it off with scissors.)
3) A second front layer traced & extended, beneath the front to create a space for the snap area to fit. (It's stitched in white on this version to add a little je ne sais quoi. ;o)
...but to add it to a large card instead I did this schtuff:
& B) Added a stitched mat (on foam tape)
but I wanted it to have a bit of texture...
(...this sort of distressed waffle texture, like fabric.)
it's been distressed along all the edges...
(with the edge of a pair of scissors) more free, yay! ;o)
...make the tag:
ink jet printer & the PT Incandescent paper has a special sparkle to it...
It gives you really cool embossing (quickly):
(me likey embossing custom computer-printed sentiments.)
Step 3) Sew the tag on: Double thread a needle & knot the end. Pierce a hole where you want the tag & put the needle through. (I used silver thread, for a little bling.)
Step 4) Add the first half of the double-sided tag: Trim the threads & glue on the back side of the tag.
Step 5) Sandwich the other side on to finish it.
