Happy Birthday Matey!!


Hi Friends!  :-)

In an effort to procrastinate in packing for my booth this coming weekend, I decided to make a card.  ha ha!!


I created this using my Cricut Imagine and Buccaneer cartridge.  See all that area around the map?  That used to be white cardstock.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Black Soot and Walnut Stain to ink the paper and the map.   I used the Walnut Stain ink around the edges of the pirate.  I did that mostly to mask the edges of the white cardstock I printed my image on. 

I added a little twine to the top of the card and added a few things to the inside.  I popped the pirate up with pop dots and adhered the rest of it with Glossy Accents, which is my favorite adhesive these days! 


Just a super simple something for pirate fan’s birthday! 

Thanks for stopping by!  :-)
