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