Hello everyone! Today we are going to leave the Mad Men behind and move on to Wild Men - short little wild men! This is a birthday card I crafted for a special little boy and I thought you might enjoy it.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to create this card. I started with a center step card and added various pirate elements. I used white cardstock for the card and black/white striped paper for the background on the front. I used vintage looking "map" paper on the center step and "water on the back step.
I cut this cute Silhouette pirate ship for the back step of the card. The color is a bit off in the photo below as the ship is actually a light tan color with white and black sail layers. I finished the ship with blue flags, doodles and three layers of "water" at the bottom.
I cut skulls and a navigation wheel to embellish the front left side of the card. I added a treasure chest to the second step, along with some doodling and the word Aargh!
I cut a paper doll with a pirate outfit for the front right side of the card. I added facial features, an eye patch, and all of his layers of clothes.
I finished the card with a bold Happy Birthday sentiment across the bottom step!
Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you enjoyed my Aargh birthday card. I will be back on Monday with another Bitten by the Bug 2 project to share.
