A Pirate Birthday Flip Card

Pirates seem to be the theme among preschoolers these days! Made this fun card for one of my four year old's classmates.

I cased the card from  Carolyn Bennie. I used Crumb Cake card stock for the base and cut it using the circle thinlits die. Use a 2.5 circle punch for the black eye, and assorted circle punches and circle framelits for the eyes, nose and mouth (I don't remember all the sizes!). I made the mustache with a deco label framelit, running it through the big shot twice to get that sliver, than cutting it in half and angling it next to the nose. The "knot" on the scarf was made using the Blossom Petal Punch (such a versatile punch, and it's on clearanaThe eyebrows, teeth, and scarf were hand cut. 

I used a white gel pen to make the eyes more realistic, a chocolate stampin' write marker to add scruff, and sponged the nose with chocolate chip ink. The sentiment and banner are from the itty bitty banners stamp set and coordinating framelits. The silver anchor was cut from the Happy Whale Clearits Die (on the clearance rack!)

I cut the panel larger than the die so there's extra room for writing. I stamped happy birthday from the retired, Delightful Dozen, and grunged it up with Gorgeous Grunge.

As always, a coordinating envelope using my handy envelope punch board. I made the envelope slightly bigger so that the pieces sticking out would fit inside without folding them.

Love this card. I tried to duplicate it. Thanks for providing some of the products used. Wish you would have provided the paper used and the stamps ie "Delightful Dozen". Thanks for the great idea. The friend I made it for will LOVE it.
