This Is What CUTE Looks Like

Good Morning,

Today's layout is the one I made to share over at Cricut FANatics. This is my Grandson at about 2 months old. I just loved the little tongue sticking out and almost mischief in the eyes.

I started with pattern paper from DCWV - All About Boys. Matted the photo in two shades of blue.
The giraffe cut at 5" from Imagine cartridge - Blast Off. Arrows - Art Philosophy-straight arrow 1.9" and curved arrow 2.5"
The scalloped shape cut twice from the Artiste cartridge. Once at 6.2" and again at 6.4"
The diamond pattern also from Artiste cut at 2".There was two layers to the image. I used CCR and welded four of them together to create the grid. I liked the rhinestones for added dimension.
The font is from Animal Antic. .5" for blue letters and 1" for CUTE. I used a red micro pen to stitch around the green letters as well as around the scalloped mat.
The diamond border is from Artiste cut at 1.75". The small diamond in the centre was the negative from the panel above.
All orange pieces distressed with Tim Holtz Ink-Spiced Marmalade and green pieces - Crushed Olive. .01 Micron red pigment pen used for stitching.

Machines Used: Imagine, Expression 2, CCR
Cartridges Used: Artiste, Art Philosophy, Blast Off, Animal Antics
Supplies Used: Red Micron Pigment Pen, Distress Ink Tim Holtz - Crushed Olive & Spiced Marmalade, Recollections - Rhinestones, DCWV pattern paper, cardstock

Enjoy your Wednesday!
