Swashbucklin Day



Hello everyone and happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is off to a great start. My card today is a card I made for my nephew's birthday. We are getting together this afternoon to celebrate and I wanted a cute card to give to him. I had so much fun with this card. The map was my favorite part :)

I first stamped the map, from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I then colored it in with copics. After I colored it in, I tore around the edges, then crinkled it up so it would look like a very old and weathered treasure map. I then inked around the inside of the map with SU's Close to Cocoa ink and then I inked around the torn edges with SU's Chocolate Chip ink. I then wound twine (also from SU) around the map. Next, I stamped the little pirate guy, from The Cat's Pajama's, onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored him in with copics. I then used my nestabilities to cut him out. I layered him onto SU's Real Red followed by Basic Black.

My card base, which measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4, is SU's Chocolate Chip. I layered Basic Black on top of that followed by Real Red. I stamped the skull and cross bones (also from The Cat's Pajama's) on the Real Red cardstock for my background. The sentiment (also from The Cat's Pajamas) was stamped onto a tag made from my new tag nesties. The ribbon is SU's Real Red.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine :)
