Ahoy Matey!

Good Morning everyone!

I am feeling so much better and am back at it! I wanted to make another card using a Sweet N Sassy stamp set, which you can find here.

I thought making a card that resembled a treasure map would be perfect for the Pirate's Life set.

First, I cut my CS to measure 8 1/4 x 12 and then scored it at 3 13/16 and 8 1/8. I then wrapped a piece of map pp around it and cut the front flap a little short in able to distress the edge.

All of the images were colored in with my Copics, then I stippled the white CS with Chalk Ink and distressed the edges to antique it.

I hope that everyone has great Sunday!


Stamps: Pirate's Life by Sweet N Sassy Stamps
