Pirate Adventure

Hello again.  What fantastic weather we have been having this week. With that thought in mind I thought i'd share a card I made for a little boy who loves playing pirates.  Initially when I was asked to make a card with a pirate on it, I thought 'oh'. Then I was walking around a local shop and they were selling off party bags and blowers, the boys were pirates and then this idea came to me

A4 Card, I used Centura Pearl as its a favourite in Green
A4 Blue Holographic Heavyweight Paper of light Cardstock
Hunkydory Insert Paper, for the boys, Waves
6 Pirate image disks
Pirate foam shapes
Star Flourish (signature die) x 2
Bunting (signature die) x3
Birthday Sentiment and Alphabet
Hougie Board, Score tool, Red tape, Foam pads and Wet glue

Decoupaged the main image using 5 layers
A4 centura pearl, score (long side) at 7, 14,21 and 28 cm (do the hougie trick)
Score (short side) down from 11 cm right the way through to 21cm and the tiny section from 28cm
On the long side, cut down from 7 cm, 14cm and 21cm from the top to the center score line, repeat the same down the 28cm score line. Remove the left over piece (top half) completely
Fold and burnish the score line and with left over lip attached Red tape to make a box shape(green on outside
Cut 3 panels 7 cm x 10.5 using blue holographic, mat and layer with the blue holographifc
Cute the the wave to mat and layer on blue holographic
Adhere the topper to the centre of the card and embellish as desired.
Attach the bunting to each edge 
attach foam stickers around front three panels. palm treets around the bottom panels and a two ships on the front panels of the upper flaps,

Thanks so much for stopping by, would be lovely to see you again.  Please feel free to follow m blog, there will be another item/listing very soon.
Take care and lots of Crafty Love
