Pirate Card

Yes, I did another card today.  Well, at least I finished another one.  There are a few that were started, but things aren’t working quite right.  Those will just have to wait.

This one was kind of fun.  I decided I wanted to use the skull and crossbones (my son says it’s called the Jolly Roger and that is the symbol, not the flag), so figured it would be fun on black.  After I got it finished, I looked at it and thought it would have been great in glow-in-the-dark embossing powder, except that doesn’t show up very well on black and I definitely wanted the white on black.  Used a die to take out a corner of the black panel and stamp a pirate scene that would peek through.  Yep, I did the whole front, even though only a corner shows.

This is for the Simon Says Stamp: For The Boys challenge.  It is definitely a boy card.  I’m thinking of one that turns 18 soon.

Yes, I did accidentally overlap two of my Jolly Rogers.  It is a bit difficult to see clear ink on a black panel.  Didn’t figure it was enough to worry about.

This one was lots of fun to make.  Hopefully it brings a smile to your face.  Can I say, the best part about making this one was that the mail ran after I got started and I received a card from a friend using this same stamp set.  That made me smile and what she wrote brought tears to my eyes.  Snail mail is definitely the best!

Thanks for spending a bit more of your precious time with me today!
