Diaper Card Pouch

I'll preface this by saying that my light bulb on my light box has burnt out, and I haven't begun to search for another one, so the lighting is bad. :( The paper is actually a light blue, not this weird white!

This is a little diaper card that I made while playing around in my room the other day. I had saved an invitation that I had gotten a while back from a friend. I used it as my inspiration for this card. It was flat, though, and I wanted this to be dimensional and stand up on it's own, so I tweaked it. Now it forms a pocket that can hold things, like this onesie!

I used a sheet of Crate Paper, and stamped it with PTI's Bitty Baby Blessings in various colors. I used cloud scissors to make the scallops and my Scor-Pal for the folds.

In the open picture, below, you can see the sentiment and the cutie elephant from the set. I paper pieced him from the same paper pack, and used my Nesties for the circle cutting and embossing.
And for a close-up...
Well, that's all for today. I'm sure that you've already seen/heard, but I wanted to also spread the word about Cammie's blog candy. If you've not been to her blog for this ENORMOUS give-away, then get to clickin'! It is for a wonderful cause and a GIGANTIC prize, so don't hesitate to take part!

And now, I'm off! I just discovered beading, and now I've got to get back to a bead store this morning! My cousin is in town, and that's her "gig", so she's "dragging" me off to look at more gorgeous beads in my local bead store. You know, I've been needing a hobby...for all of my spare time. :) I just can't say no to a good craft! LOL

Just THINK of all of the altered and stamped Altoid tins in my future, holding handmade jewelry for my friends and family! I'm giddy just thinking about it! ;) You should see the cutie Christmas book mark that I made for my sister for her birthday! Maybe I'll take a picture later...

Till then...
