Enjoy! Crab-u-lous Flat Card!

I love to make heavy, fully loaded with ribbons, buttons and bling cards, but to send my skittles out first class mail my cards have to be FLAT!! This has not been an easy transition for me, but I feel like I am finding new ways to create flat yet fun cards!





Crab is from Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge
Papers are all from Target $1.00 paper from last Year
Sequence from my Stash

  7. I agree.... Mailing thick cards can be tricky and even expensive. I do love your flat card. That little crab is adorable. And by adding the sequins does give it dimension. Thanks for join us in the challenge at the Parade Your Crafts blog.

  8. That is one sassy crab! I think it's got so much color and pop that you don't miss the dimension at all :)
