Baby Card

I saw a baby card on Pinterest and wanted to make it but the link didn't lead me to a pattern so I tried a hand at making my own.  I'm pretty pleased with the results.  I'm giving it to a dear friend who is expecting her first grandchild.  

I started with a 5.5 x 4.25 piece of white card stock and drew out the basic shape, then I picked the side I liked best.  I folded it in half, so both sides would be even, and cut it out.  Remember making paper hearts in school?  It's sort of the same principal.  I did the same with the little pocket for the front.  For the leg bands and the straps, I drew one that worked and then flipped it over and traced it to make a mirror image for the other side. Here's a pic of the inside.  

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Stamps by Judith & Heather - Sm. Giraffe Pull Toy 
Card Stock:  October Afternoon 8x8 Paper Pad - Sidewalks
Inks: Stampin' Up: Real Red, Not Quite Navy
Miscellaneous: Marvy small star punch, white brads, Stampin' Up buttons
