This Cricut pirate card was made for my nephew's birthday.

He loves skulls and pirates! How perfect that the Life is a Beach cartridge as this cool looking pirate on it. I was able to put it together in a flash!

  • 8.5" x 11" black card stock for card base
  • Scrap of tan paper for background (size is 8" x 5")
  • Scrap of white paper for the skull (about 8" x 5")
  • Scrap of black paper for the eye patch
  • Scrap of red patterned paper for the bandana
  • Sparkle gem embellishment for the eye patch
  • Paper trimmer and or scissors
  • Glue stick or pen (for intricate designs I use a fine-tipped Zig pen)

  • Card is 8.5" x 5.5" (half fold card)
  • First mat is 8" x 5".

Life is a Beach:

  • Pirate and its layers are 4"

Detailed Instructions for the Cricut Pirate Card:

1. Fold a 8.5" x 11" piece of black card stock in half to create a 5.5" x 8.5" card. This will be the card base.

2. Cut a tan mats for the cover, at 8" x 5", then carefully tear the edges to give it a rustic look. Glue this mat to the front of the card.

3. Using the Life is a Beach cartridge, load the white paper on a mat. To cut the pirate, press the shift button. Then select the treasure box button (button 44). Cut at size 4".


4. Load the black paper and the red paper on to a mat. To cut the pirate layers, press "repeat last", then press the "layers" special feature button. Cut at size 4" on the black paper. Then, move the blade manually to where the red paper is on your mat and press "repeat last" and press cut to make the layers also in red. Assemble the card by gluing all the components on the front of the card.

5. For the center of the eye patch, I glued on a sparkle gem for some extra flair.
