Ahoy Matey

This is a card for April, one of my Stampin' Ladies. She called me last night and asked me to make her a card for a 2 year old boy. So Ahoy Matey it is.


This is a tent topper card. I think these type of cards are great for the little ones. The best part of this card is that it stands up by itself. So the little boy can stand it up in his room if he would like.


I wheeled the map on whisper white. Then I watercolored parts and used markers on other parts. The mountain tops are highlighted with the white gel pen. When I was happy with the map, I tore the edges and sponged the entire image with So Saffron, to give it an aged look. I colored the little pirate with markers, and sponged around him with So Saffron too. I punched the corners with the ticket corner punch, (yes I am addicted), and placed the gold brads in the corners.


Here is a picture of the inside. I did not want to cover up the map with the sentiment so I put it on the inside of the card -- popped up on dimensionals.
