Easy Baby "Onesie" Cards

These cards are so fun and easy to make!  Besides, I am in great need of baby cards...there are babies popping up everywhere right now!  I quickly grabbed some patterned paper, stickers and my circle and scallop punch and made 12 of these today.  Special thanks to Lauren Meeder for this design idea.  I have to apologize for my photo color and lighting are both off today...grrr.  

Go run and grab some white card stock for the base of your will need to cut your card stock in half to make two 4 1/4" x 11" strips.  Fold those in half so that their finished size is now 4 1/4" x 5.5".  Below I took some photos to show you how to cut the scallops and also how to measure and cut the card into a onesie.  Enjoy!
Select your patterened paper (I use K&Co, Basic Grey and SEI)
These are the stickers I used along w/ the patterned paper I selected.
Use your 1 3/8" circle punch and punch the top along the fold and the 2 bottom corners.
From the top fold, measure down 1 1/2" and cut inward 1/2" from the side.  Connect the bottom right corner to the inside of the sleeve.  Repeat for both sides.
Using a 1 3/8" circle punch.  Punch a half circle through patterned paper
Place your scallop punch over the circle you just punched.
This is the scallop that will fit on the neck and also the corner of the cute!
