Getting Cricky - Simply Sunday Challenge - Argh Matey

Happy Sunday My Crafty Friends!  Today is another Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky with K Andrew!  This week we were challenged to make a project with a pirate/fish theme.  I decided to go with a pirate theme.  I often have difficulty making cards for boys/men so that's what I was trying to accomplish today.

For my card, I used the Buccaneer Imagine Cartridge.  My card base is 5 1/2 X4 and I used Recollections black card stock.  My striped layer was printed and cut from the Buccaneer cartridge and is 5 1/4 X 4.  I cut and printed my skeleton along with the layers at 1 inches and used Stampin' Up Dimensionals to pop each layer up and give it some dimension.  Then I used 2 thicknesses of foam tape to apply him to my card for added dimension.  It looks really cool in person.  My black cord is from Walmart.  My awesome sentiment is from none other than the fabulous K Andrew.  I used the Pirate Tales & Fish Scales stamp set to stamp my rope with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and my sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  To check out this awesome stamp set or see all the other sets available click here!
