"Live Your Life" Pirate Card

I created this fun little card for K. Andrew's Simply Sunday Challenge - Argh Matey! All of the cuts and papers are from the Cricut Imagine Buccaneer cartridge. The envelope was cut from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge at 4.9" and the card was created by welding together two images from the Elegant Edges cartridge at 4.5"


Both card layers were cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge at 4.25"...


...the banner was cut at 2" and stamped with a sentiment from K. Andrew's Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.


The pirate was cut at 2.25" and the helm was cut at 2". Both the banner and the pirate are popped up on foam for added dimension. 


The parchment liner was cut at 3.5" and stamped with a second sentiment. The compass was cut at .75".





Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Buccaneer, Elegant Edges and Wild Card
K. Andrew's Positive Thoughts Stamp Set
Paper: Recollections cardstock and Colorbok white textured cardstock

Another awesome card! I want to say the ships wheel is called the stern but am not 110% sure. Thanks for the video. Hope your starting to feel much better.

This is really cute. The stripes make me think "pirate" and I really like how you finished off the envelope. Thanks so much for sharing it with us on the Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge.
