Cutie Patootie!

Hey Everyone! Happy Monday :)

This week I had fun playing with the Overall Shaped Card set. These overalls are so adorable, I just couldn't resist.

Rather than making a shaped card, I decided to add the overalls to a standard A2 card!

I used Kraftcore cardstock and my Silhouette to cut out the overalls.  I love the Kraftcore because when you sand it, it exposes the kraft interior of the cardstock.  I sanded the edges and then I sanded the knee of the overalls (the knees of my boys pants were always worn out).

I added some stitching to the edges of the overalls (just like the detail stitching that you find on jeans).  I embellished with some tiny buttons and this sweet tag using the Baby Mini Words set!

I found this sweet little frog cutting file on the Silhouette online store and I fell in love.  It was the perfect embellishment for my card.

I had a blast working with the Overall Shaped Card set and I hope you feel inspired to try it yourself.
