Baby Card ~ Romper

Sharing is caring!

This tutorial will show you how to make a baby romper card from scratch in Canvas Workspace just using shapes!

While you may not need to make a romper card, the tutorial will demonstrate how to make much more…..

My daughter inspired me to make this romper baby card. Yep, you guessed it, a NEW baby which is very exciting indeed. Following a new baby, you then need a baby card. I had some indecision over what baby card I wanted to make as, of course, I wanted it special. I have chosen a baby card in the form of a romper cause they are so cute and provide plenty of opportunities to embellish how you would like.

Grab the free design to make

The good news about this baby card is that it is sooo easy to make. I have included a FREE romper baby card template which you can grab from the Resource Library. Simply download it, cut it out the colors to suit and embellish as required. Boy or girl, this card will suit. I am doing mine for a baby boy 😉

Decision time.

If you have a Brother Scan N Cut cutting machine you may like to try to put this card together from scratch. This is a great learning exercise for you. I have put together a tutorial using the online version of Canvas Workspace however the instructions will be very similar if you use the downloaded version of Canvas.

What is the difference between the online version and downloaded version of Canvas Workspace

If you are a little uncertain about Canvas Workspace and which version is which I have a post that provides information on both. (By the way, I like and use BOTH versions and find I choose which version I use depending on what I am trying to do. )

Send the file to your machine

The next step is to send the baby card to your machine to cut out. If you have downloaded it from the Resource Library you will need to unzip the file. Once you have it unzipped select the FCM file if you have a Scan N Cut OR the SVG for other cutting machines.

Scan N Cut users… if you need help with this step check out this tutorial which provides a guide to adding a file to Canvas Workspace. Alternatively, you can pop the file on a USB and take it directly to your machine.

Make sure you remember to add a test cut!

TIP: check designs when adding them to either Canvas Workspace OR Design Space to ensure dotted fold lines have NOT inadvertently changed to solid cut lines. If you have too much trouble with dotted score lines, remove them from the design and create a manual scoreline.

Let’s put it together

A really easy card to put together. I love easy!

Fold the cut-out romper card on the dotted score lines at the shoulder points.

Fold lines for the Baby Card Romper post.

That’s the base of the baby card done! How easy was that!

Now the fun bit to embellish the card. I had a bright idea to add real buttons to the card. That will look great!

So, I upended my button collection (years old)

Buttons for the baby romper card

Yep! A bit of a mess when all tipped out everywhere. I scrummaged through them, however, the only blue ones I could locate that were nearly ok were these.

Embellishments for the baby romper card

Wrong blue and toooo big! Good idea that didn’t pan out. You may have much better luck. If I was at my mum’s, her button collection is much, much older and larger. I would have found the right ones in there for sure.

Back to embellishments!

You could add buttons, bows, colored contrast card, additional borders etc. If you watched the tutorial I showed another option in there as well.

Pieces of the baby romper card ready to be assembled

These pieces are included in the FREE template and I have shown you how to duplicate them in the tutorial.

Simply glue them where you would like. This project used tacky glue.

Completed baby romper card

Finished up putting card buttons cut with the Scan N Cut on my card. For the moment I have placed the word “baby” on there for the moment however, I plan to cut out the baby’s name and personalize the baby card further. I always think the more personalized the better.
