Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #132

Today we are celebrating Columbus Day at FCCB. We want you to incorporate a ship in your project this week. Since I am down on my birthday card stash, I decided to make a fun card for boy. I used the Imagine cartridge, Buccaneer.

I used my 5 1/4" square card template that I've saved in CCR. It is simply two rounded squares from the Boys Will Be Boys cart welded together. I then printed one of the papers from the Buccaneer cart at 5" and adhered it to the green card base. The ship image I printed/cut once along with the birthday sentiment. On a separate layer in CCR, I separated the images and printed/cut the flags, masts, and the word Birthday only. This allowed me to "pop" them up on the ship for added dimension. I had an idea to use some of my misc. buttons to embellish the card but couldn't find any that resembled coins. I ended up finding some trim at Hobby Lobby with "coins" on them. I took two and distressed them with  Pinata alcohol inks after I "roughed" them up a little. And even though it is for a boy, I had to add a little Stickles, Gold for the dot on the "I" and Black Diamond for the port holes.
