My Favorite Things stamp company put out an awesome set last month called Just Beclaws that I had to have...and not even knowing how quickly one of the sentiments was going to be so perfect to use for Kara!! Take a look:
I apologize in advance for my poor photography skills...I do alright with flat lay photography, but when it comes to 3D, I just can't seem to get rid of those shadows! But anyway, I used Lawn Fawn's Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up Die to create my pop up card, and just covered it with crabs, crabs, and more crabs!!
The DSP paper I used over the Night Of Navy cs is from My Favorite Things Watercolor Wash 6x6 pad, and reminded me of water, so it was perfect to use for my seaside crabs!
I used kraft cardstock for the strips you use inside the box and stamped the little speckles from SU!'s Glorious Grunge in Vintage Photo Distress ink to look like sand for my crabs to sit on. I also added a few liitle bits of die cut sea grass from an AliExpress die.
The stamp set also comes with an umbrella, so I die cut that from some Pure Poppy Bitty Big DSP (PTI) and then added a few pop dots behind it to give a little more depth and dimension to the umbrella. And did you notice the googlie eyes on the larger crab in the center?? This was actually a pretty easy card to put together after I finished coloring all the crabs (Copics) and I really like how it turned out! Hopefully it brought a smile to Kara's face and she knows I didn't intentionally forget her birthday! It's just one of the downfalls of having OLD friends Kara!! Hope it was a FABULOUS birthday my friend!! :0)
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
