Happy Birthday, Lil Bucaneer!!

So glad you decided to stop by today!! :) I have a super cute card and bag set I made for my nephew that I am really excited to share!! 

I am in looooooove with the print and cut feature on my Cameo!!! I just don't have time these days to cut out a million little pieces and put them all together. When I think about it, I actually just avoid crafting... That's why when I finally sat down and figured out print/cut I was on cloud 9!! Sooooo much quicker!! 

The background of this card was torn by hand, then inked using Distress Ink to give it a "treasure map" type of feel. Using the same ink I made the print outs a little "dirty" looking by inking the edges as well.  I also used Matte Accents to make the bottom of the ship look like wood. Love how it turned out!! 

Here is what I used...
- All Around sentiment stamps and circle die from My Creative Time
- pirate graphics from Lettering Delights
- Script background stamp by Pink By Design
- Recollections brads

I hope you love my project today!! :) I was super happy with how it turned out!! Make sure you come  back tomorrow for a peek at my project for the Pink By Design blog!!!
