Crabby Pals for Make the Cut Challenge

I am a featured designer this week for the Make The Cut challenge! (yeah)
I designed these cute little Crabby Pals cut files in honor of the occasion.

You can download the cut files and assembly guide here.
You can use the red crab or the hermit crab or both of these cute little crustaceans.

They go together really easily.

Here is a card I made for a little inspiration. 

The patterned papers are from Echo Park's Hello Summer line designed by Lori Whitlock.
I think they add a perfect cheerful Summer time feeling.

For the sand and sea layers, I tore strips of kraft and Core-dinations papers. The strips only have adhesive on three sides so they make little pockets. That way the crab and flip flops can be moved around. 

The umbrella and sun are printed stickers that I raised with pop dots. (I put a little powder on the back of the stickers so it would neutralize the adhesive and not stick to the actual card.) The umbrella has pop dots in the center and is attached to the card on the top and both sides. It looks like it is opening up right off the page.

The flip flops have tiny ribbon going through them. SO cute!

Hop on over to The Make The Cut Forum to join in on the challenge.
