It seems like every time I turn around, another of my friends is expecting. So I may as well get to work on some baby cards. For this one, I also made a matching little treat bag, so they could be used for a baby shower.
I can't remember right now, but I think the card is about 6-1/2 inches long. Just a bit too long to fold over a 12 inch long piece of card stock. So here's how I did it. The base layer (aqua) is 6-1/2 x 3-1/4 approximately. Whatever size fits into your envelope. The second layer (moss) is about 7 by 3 inches, so that you can fold it over to the back and glue on.

The medium dots are stamped on vellum. I like the thicker vellum card stock. Be sure to allow plenty of drying time. One row of large dots is stamped on the base aqua layer. For the bow, I find it easiest to tie the bow first, then attach with a glue dot. And, oh, this ribbon (Papertrey Ink luxe satin) ties like a dream. That tiny little strip of striped paper is from Papertrey's Everyday Blessings 6x6 pad. Before assembling, rub all the edges except base layer along a black ink pad.
The little vellum treat bag is done like a 2-4-6-8 box, but I made it a 1-3-4-6 box, about four inches tall. So start with a piece of vellum 6-1/2 x 5-1/2, this allows room for trimming the scalloped top.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
