Happy Birthday Matey

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly McKown-Santi our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Tuesday was "Talk like a Pirate" day, so for our challenge this week we are to create a card using anything pirate related - brownie points for using maps!

For my card today I decided to pull our my Ahoy Matey stamp set from Lawn Fawn to create a pop-up card. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Pop-Up die set as well as the Ocean Hillside Pop-Up Add-On die set to create the pop up portion of the card. I have been wanting to play with the ocean add on for a while but hadn't gotten around to it until now.

For the front of the card I duplicate many of the images that I used on the inside of the card.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Nice idea to use the same images on the inside (popped-up this time) as on the outside. Super cute scene!
