Sweet Baby Boy

Hi Stampers -

This week at The Cutting Cafe it was a masculine themed week! This tends to be one of the harder styles for me so it was a little challenging - which is always fun :)

This week we could choose to use - the Overalls Shaped Card, The Funny Car Treat Box and Shared Card Set or the All About Boys Printable Stamp Set.

I decided to use the Overalls Shaped Card Set, but instead of doing a shaped card, I used the card front and used it on a 6" x 6" square card. I also paired the overalls with the T-Shirt Shaped Card to create a little undershirt for the overalls. The T-Shirt fits perfectly :)

I wanted to give my overalls some texture so after cutting the pattern out I ran it through my paper crimper about 7 or 8 times to break the fibers in my cardstock. I then smoothed it out and peeled it into two parts. This creates the fuzzy looking side which is what I wanted! I then used the other half to make my pockets. I sponged all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and the word Sweet! was stamped using the Wild For Watermelon stamp set from Flourishes.

Here is a closer look at the overalls so you can see the texture a little better...

Later this afternoon be sure to visit The Cutting Café Blog to see all the Design Team Projects! Each week Regina draws one lucky winner who has left a comment to win 3 free files of their choice!
