Crabby Card ~ Color Dare 285

With Black and White
Open through April 5th

What a fun time I had making this card for our Color My Heart color dare! It's whimsical and makes me smile. Each Friday we challenge you to create a paper craft using the color palette we give you. You must use ALL the colors (black and white are free). If you don't have the exact CTMH colors you may substitute something close but do not add any brand new colors to the palette. Check out the full details on our home page

I started with our Make It from Your Heart How-to book. All the details for cutting and placement are right there for you making it easy! The circles were cut using Thin Cuts...another very easy step! After stamping the crab I did a light wash with our Shimmer Brush for some sparkle.

All products are Close To My Heart:
  • Stamp Set: Make Waves - Cardmaking
  • Make It from Your Heart: Volume 4, Pattern 3
  • Exclusive Inks: Raspberry
  • Cardstock: Basic Fundamentals, Raspberry, Black, White
  • Specialty Paper: Bashful Glitter Paper
  • Tools: Thin Cut Circles, thin 3D Foam Tape, Bashful Shimmer Brush
  • Embellishments: Bashful Pearls, Adventure Ribbon
If you need a consultant I'd be happy to help.
If you'd like to BE a consultant I can help with that, too.

Now it's your turn to give this color dare a try. Create any paper craft you like and link to our home page. We can't wait to see what you share!

Have a creative day!

  1. Michelle, I really love this card! I love how you use the Raspberry with pops of it in the ribbon and stamping.

  2. That crab is such a cute image - and it really pops with the Raspberry colour. What a toad-ally koala-ty card! Made with love (and pinchers), for sure :)

  3. great sentiment and love the glittery crab and darling bow. Cool and fun card for sure.
