- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Sahara Sand cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 2-1/2 x 5 piece of By the Bay Designer Paper was added to a 2-3/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock, then adhered to the front.
- The fishing “net” was cut with the die in Share a Milkshake from Sahara Sand cardstock…I thought it was pretty authentic! It was adhered with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
- Two crabs were stamped with Calypso Coral Ink on Basic White, colored with Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends, and cut with the Seaside Bay Dies, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A large and a small scallop shell were cut from Petal Pink cardstock, the grass from Sahara Sand cardstock with the Seaside Bay Dies. All were added to the front.
- Be My Valentine from Share a Milkshake stamp set was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Calypso Coral cardstock and punched with the Scallop Oval Duo Punch, then added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The Country Bouquet hearts were punched from Calypso Coral and Petal Pink and added to the front.
- A couple gold Pastel Adhesive Backed Sequins were added to the shell and heart.
SO happy that this turned out like I pictured in my head with the two crabs! OK, next up on our blog hop is our Create with Connie and Mary website, then on to creative Mary Brown, or head backwards to see Melissa Davies’ fabulous project and see what everyone did with this challenge!
