It's that time again...Clear Dollar Stamps is having their end of the month guest designer challenge. For the August challenge they are doing a sketch. You could make whatever you wanted as long as you used the sketch.
For the challenge I decided to make a box. Now this is no ordinary box, this is a special box to hold a special gift for a soon to be here special little boy. We are anxiously awaiting his arrival! I used Clear Dollars "Charlie Baby" stamp set. I have to say Charlie is a favorite of mine! I stamped Baby Charlie on white cardstock using Brilliance graphite black ink. I also stamped Baby Charlie on some brown fabric using the same ink. After coloring Baby Charlie with my copic sketch markers I adhered the blanket that I cut from the fabric. Then it was off to get the cuttlebug to cut and emboss my circle. I sponged around the edges to give it a little rustic feel. I then added the blue button with a glue dot. I took strips of Adornit paper ("Old West Collection-just seemed fitting) and Sand from CTMH and did the faux ribbon technique and sewed it on the sewing machine. I then layered my cardstock (CTMH's Crystal Blue, White, and Sand). I added some brads to the corners, put my oval up on demnsionals, and added my faux ribbon. I stamped the word 'Baby' on the corner of the flap of the box. **Which by the way measures 7 x 3 1/4 x 3/4 inches.
I also stamped on a plain white onsie, colored and added the same fabric & button from the box.
Here is a close up of the box...
