I saw this card on a blog and sketched it out and knew I wanted to recreate it for my dear friend Ken for his birthday. The sentiment inside (non- Stampin Up) says Ahoy Matey… Your ARRRH treasured. This expression truly fits the friendship that I have with Ken and his lovely wife Sue so I created this card just for him. The pirates head and mustache is cut from the top note die #113463. The eye patch, his eye and the earring are cut from various circle punches, the nose is from the Owl builder punch #118074. I used the 3 1/2 inch circle to get the general shape of the head scarf and then fussy cut it from a piece of scrap retired Under the Big Top DSP. I added a piece of bakers twine to attach the patch and finished it with a piece of bling for the earring.
This card could also be used as a cute Halloween card or an invite to a come as you aren’t party! I hope Ken likes this card as much as I enjoyed making it. If he does not, he’ll just have to walk the plank!
