First Steps

Look at those adorable feet! Oh my goodness, I just light up when I see anything “infant”. I’ve been accused of being a “greedy greedy Grandma” because I love holding precious infants and hate sharing them;)

I’ve seen this folding technique used on several different cards on Pinterest and since I needed a card for a new baby boy I thought I’d give it a try. Stampin’ Up’s beautiful double sided Designer Series paper made it super simple to create this adorable card with a Whisper White card base and two pieces of Designer Series paper.

Start with a card base of Whisper White, choose 2 of your favorite patterns from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper and cut them to 5¼ x 4. Fold the right corner of the paper you want on top down 2¼ inches, then do the same with the lower right corner and use your bone folder to crease them flat. Tie ribbon around the middle and adhere the top to the bottom paper with snail adhesive.

Using your Stamparatus stamp the sentiment with the feet onto Whisper White card stock. Choose a circle from  your  Stitched Shapes Framelit set to create the sentiment, adhere with Stampin’ Dimensional’s.

Before adhering to the card base, stamp the inside.
