I started this card yesterday for my niece who is having a baby soon. I will have to get cracking and make a "boy" version too. It just occurred to me that it fits Jeanne's Free for All Friday this week.
I cannot take credit for the actual shape. I purchased a wooden coverall template years ago, I used it to trace around card-stock covered with DP.
The front and back are two separate pieces with holes punched at the shoulder, then held together with narrow ribbon tied in bows.
I sanded all the edges to give a vintage faded effect and trimmed the neckline with lace punched paper. Little buttons are secured with 3D tape, as are the pockets. Thank you for looking.

Susie, your work here is full of excellence and cuteness! I think my fav part is the border punch for the lacy lil shirt! Outstanding! Hugs....
