It's Yarr Birthday!!

Hey everybody! Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made. It's for my nephew and I thought the pirate theme would be good. I used the Imagine to make this card. My machine is still not working properly though. It will sometimes cut the images out and other times it won't. It also is still randomly rebooting. Provocraft is replacing it for me (yay!). I am very happy about that because I love, love, LOVE the Imagine. I got the Buccaneer cartridge over the holidays and was anxious to use it and that's what inspired this card. I also printed the paper for the envelope using that cartridge. I really like how it turned out.


Birthday Sundaes Challenge #38 - Create a new birthday card.

Other: Glossy Accents

Thanks for visiting my blog!!


  1. This is such a cool card! I love the inside as much as the outside! The matching envelope is awesome too! :)


  2. Great card-- the matching envelope is perfect and the sentiment on the back made me giggle :) Thanks for creating with us at FCCB this week :)

  3. Linda,
    Love your pirate card! I need to use this cartridge!
    My Imagine is doing the same thing, guess I need to call PC.
    Thanks for sharing:)

  4. OMG! What a cute card both inside and out! I got this cartridge for Christmas but have not had a chance to use it. Thanks for joining in the fun at Cooking with Cricut!

  5. Saw your wonderful Pirate card entered at Fantabulous Cricut. I'm a big fan of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. You can see sketches of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow on my blog sidebar. Wish that someone would create a Disney Pirates of the Caribbean Cricut cartridge. Do not have an Imagine so cannot use the Buccaneer cartridge.
