CCMC 310

Good morning, Friends! It's time for another fabulous Thursday challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we have these fabulous colors to work with! Take a look!

Real Red, Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy! Love these!! And my first thought was something nautical. Here's my card.

I did throw in Crumb Cake for my neutral. I do have to admit that I really like how this one turned out! It was really fun to put these colors together!

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • On the card base stamp the coral image from By the Tide using Crumb Cake ink
  • Flag the ends of a strip of Night of Navy and Coastal Cabana card stock then adhere to card
  • Stamp the lobster image using Real Red ink onto Crumb Cake and cut out then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the circle image onto Crumb Cake using Coastal Cabana ink and cut out with snips (you can use the circle punch to punch it out but I like the look of it hand cut)
  • Insert a mini brad at the top of the anchor in the punched circle and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes onto the card base using Night of Navy ink
Pretty simple card! More inspiration using these great colors are at Create with Connie and Mary! Week 2 of the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection is well underway!

  1. I love what you did with these colors - especially using Crumb Cake as the background! Great job on cutting out that lobster!

  2. What a wonderful card! Super idea to use the Crumb Cake... like the sandy ocean bottom! Like Lisa said, GREAT job cutting out that lobster!!

  3. I love the simple design of this card Deb - all elements perfectly balanced and great neutral card base too. However long did it take to fussy cut the lobster?! Worth it though - looks fab.

  4. Love it! Perfect masculine card! My folks visited Nantucket and this would make the perfect Thank You card for opening their lake home over the 4th...might just have to copy it and put my own twist on it!

  5. I think this would make a great Lobster Party invite, too! Perfect card for any sea-lovin' friend!

  6. So gorgeous! I love that you used Crumb Cake as your neutral color, looks amazing with the lobster!
