Joy's Life Design Team Thursday - Pirate Greetings

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday featuring Joy's Life You're So Punny Clear Stamp Set.

Today's card was inspired by this new cartoon on the Disney channel called Jake and the Neverland Pirates. an adult's TV watching habits change after having kids!! Anyway...there is this cute little skull & crossbones icon on the boat flag and gold coins that I just had to make and pair with Joy's "Ahoy Matey" stamp.  I actually found a skull that looked like the one from the show in the new Lettering Delights Rockstar SVG Set.  I modified it slightly in MTC by removing the nose and making one eye socket larger than the other.  I also created a drop shadow layer for the cut in MTC and used by Cougar to cut out each layer.  I created the red and white background paper by using VersaMark to stamp the Hero Arts Stripes Pattern background image on red paper and embossed with white embossing powder.  I layered everything together on the card base using pop dots.  This card was created in under 10 minutes and I was able to use up some more of my scrap paper!

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Be sure to check out the other design team creations by visiting Joy's Life.
