A Pinch to grow an inch
As I'm restocking my birthday cards I want to try to make a few that are geared towards kids. I have loved this crab since the moment I saw him. He's from the SU set Crab & Co. and I've used him for many types of cards since I purchased him. This time I have him holding a present and cake from the set and I used the shrimp and the pinch to grow an inch! phrase on the front bottom. Inside it says "snappy birthday". I used 3 different beach themed papers from an old Summer Stack that I have and there are little water drop stickers trailing behind the shrimp. I colored everything with my copics. Unfortunately, the color on top of the crab did bleed a little bit but I didn't think it was enough to scrap him. In order to make it look like he was really holding his gift and cake I took my craft knife & cut along his claw so that the items could be slid in where they needed to be. Have a snappy day!!
