Baby Card with fun Gift Card Pocket

Hi everybody!! I am so happy you came by today. I have a cute little baby card to share with you.

I love all the little details I added to the little stroller including buttons, gel pen stitching and a cute "Congrats!" stamp.

Here is the inside of the card.  It features what I think is a perfect sentiment for a baby card.

This is the card standing up.  You can see the gift card pocket on the inside.

I added some white gel pen details to the baby's face as well as stamped on the features.

Here is my fancy fold:  I took a 5 3/4" x 10 1/2 sheet of textured card stock.  I scored it at 4 1/4" and at a half inch in each direction to make a total of three score lines and then accordion folded the card base.  This created an "M" fold.  I sealed the two sides closed on the underside and that left just the 'valley' fold on the inside of the card base. 

 I added a clear plastic badge holder for the gift card pocket (cut to 3" and then punched with a scallop punch.

Here is a view of the empty gift card pocket. You can also see all the texture of the card stock base in this photo.
