Oh, snap!

Hi there again! How is everyone's Sunday going? It's going great here. I've had a pretty laid back weekend so far, and was able to get a lot of projects done the past few days. :) That always makes me happy.

For today's project, I got to use this SUPER CUTE new cut file from Lisa Norris, over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons! Isn't this crab just adorable?! As soon as I saw it, I just had to have it. And as a bonus, there are two more crabs available with this cut file! 
I created the shadow for my crab using the Silhouette Studio offset feature. The card base was created with a background shape from the Silhouette Library. I just welded two shapes together for the base. Then used the internal offset feature to create the top and inside layers. For my "sand" I ripped some Core'dinations cardstock and then inked the edges with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 
Supplies:
PaperTrey Ink Black and White cardstock
Core'dinations
The Paper Studio A Day at the Beach paper pack
Silhouette Studio (card base)
Scrappy Moms Amusing Animals

That's all for this weekend! Back to work tomorrow, but don't forget to stop in and see what I've been up to!
