Today is my best friend, Michele's birthday, so I sent her this cute card. It's the same old Crab & Co., but this time he's prepared for a birthday. No Santa hat here. I did stamp him and the presents with Jet Black StazOn using a mask like I did with my Christmas cards, but this time I colored the presents in using my Real Red and Tempting Turquoise ink pads and blender pens. I also stamped the cake in a shell and colored it in with my Creamy Caramel and Tempting Turquoise ink pads and blender pens. I layered the crab on a piece of Basic Black. I then took a larger piece of Tempting Turquoise and used my Spiral Punch down both sides. I threaded a piece of Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon through two slots and tied it in a knot. I then adhered my crab layers on top of the Tempting Turquoise. I stamped my Real Red card base with my Polka Dot background in Real Red and adhered the Tempting Turquoise layer on top. In the inside I stamped the sentiment "snappy birthday" in Jet Black StazOn. I hope this card makes it to her on time!!!
