This is my second card using the Cape Cod stamp set created by Jenn Shurkus. For more information on these wonderful stamps, see the photo and explanation below.
I couldn’t resist the lobsters in this set and had fun making a little pattern with them (sort of like synchronized swimming lobsters!). Now, here in Oregon, we don’t have lobsters. We have the tastiest crabs of all: Dungeness. But someday I will go to Cape Cod so I can have a lobster roll! I designed the card front and then wanted to find a sentiment to match the card (sort of backwards, huh?). I did think the one I picked was pretty perfect even though the sentiment went with an entirely different stamp set.
