Party Like A Pirate

Ahoy Mate!

It's been quite some time since I made a box card and now that I'm putting up a blog post on my latest creation, I realized I've never enter a blog post on the box cards that I've made.

So I decided to share with you today a box card that I've just completed yesterday.  I managed to find the right props and took quite a number of pictures.  It's always a joy to take pictures of the box card because different angles of it will give me different views of and to get the right angle to feature the card in one picture can be a tricky task!

The box card was created using a box card cut file that I have in my Silhouette library.  Cutting the box is really a very easy and quick task with the Silhouette Cameo as all I need to do is get the right file, choose the right papers and a click of the mouse the Cameo does the job for me!

For the stamp set, I'm sure if you are a paper crafter you will be able to recognise immediately that this set of images are from My Favorite Things Party Like A Pirate stamp set!  I've always loved MFT stamp sets especially the ones by Birdie Brown!  They are just so cute and loads of fun to colour!
I stamped the images with Memento black tuxedo ink pad and I used my Brother ScanNcut cutting machine to have the images cut out.  Yes you heard me right, I've got the Brother ScanNcut too, as a birthday and mothers' day gift! 
Like I said, it's hard to find a right angle to show the whole of the box card and so I took a couple of more pictures to show the different angles.

From this photo you can see there's a little wave that is right in front of the pirate ship.  That's a cut file I found in my Silhouette library and I thought it would be nice to just add it on to show that the boat is riding on the wave.. (well, kind of!)

And this picture shows you how the box card will look when it's being flatten to go into an envelope for easy mailing :)
Hope you  like the Party Like A Pirate box card that I've shared on my blog today.  There's been a few enquiries in the past from people and friends who are on my Instagram, asking if I would want to sell my box cards.  And recently I just realized I could have get the license for the box if I want to do so.  Well.. let's just see how things go, yeah? :)
Just one more day and the weekend is coming!  Stay calm and craft on!
