Onesie Template and Tutorial

I made a onesie card quite a while back, and one of my readers recently requested a template.  I finally got around to finding the card (Yes, I still have it! Some are hard to part with!) and thought I would show you how I constructed my template.  I'm sure you've seen these here and there, but maybe mine is not exactly the same...I made it so that the openings on the template are 1/8 inch larger than the finished card size because I like being able to see my trace marks and use them to align the dies to cut the openings.  They come out so much prettier die-cut than just trimmed with scissors!

You may prefer to just download the template and use it as it is, but some of you like to see the process, so I've included the template construction in my video.  I hope you like it!  It's today's Paper Craft Planet Monday Tutorial.
