Maryland is for Crabs!

Blue Crabs that is! The best thing in the world steamed!!!! But this little guy isn't steamed, he's happy! My mother asked me to make some crab cards for a gift basket their group is putting together. This is what I came up with. I made three of each design. The cards measure 5"x5" and fit great in our square envelopes. I used my new Nestablitlies die cuts for the layers, added some googlie eyes or dew drops to the cards along with some designer series paper and ribbon. (The basic card and ribbon are both Wild Wasabi which is retired.....but I have tons of it so I want to use it up!!!)
