Summer is nearing it's end, but I am not ready to stop making summer-themed cards yet. So today's card has a happy sun and crab. For the background, I used blue and brown cardstock from my stash. On the blue paper, I used my Connect the Dots embossing folder. The brown paper was embossed with Spots & Dots and then I used a stipple brush to add some Walnut Distress Ink for depth. I also used my Scor-Pal on the blue cardstock to create a couple of dividing lines between the blue and brown paper. The sun is a file from Carrie's Creations that I modified a bit to fit my needs. The face is a Peachy Keen stamp (Wide Eyed Kids set). The adorable little crab is a file from FileKutz by LisaJane. I adhered the pincers with foam squares for dimension and added some googly eyes. I think he has to be the cutest crab I've ever seen! The sentiments on the card are from K Andrew Designs (from the Splashtastic Summer and Food for Thought sets). I am impressed at how well they stamped over the embossed paper. I love these stamps! For the final touch, I added a few rhinestones in between the two sentiments.
