Made this card for my DH after I had been having a bad day. I had just gotten my order in so wanted to use my new toys. I printed the sentiment on the computer, then cut it out with the large oval punch, then punched out a piece of caramel with the key tag punch. I used my new color sprizer and then a sponge to lay down some creamy caramel. I embossed the red piece with clear emboss over red craft ink using the mesh background. I had to get this one when I heard it was going to be retiring, for this set and for using at Halloween. It feels so neat the way it is raised on the paper. I cut out an oval from some of the spring papers from DCWV. For the inner punch I used the giga scallop oval and cut it out of shimmer white. I started off using watercolor crayons, but then changed to markers to give the crab a brighter look on his body and claws. The rest is using the crayons. I sponged all around the edges of the caramel. Also put googley ones on the crab. I tied on the red gingham ribbon, I really wanted to use the caramel but alas, I didn't have any..need to get some of that!
As a joke on the inside I put a post it note that said, "P.S. The front does NOT apply to me!" DH about busted a gut laughing at that!
