Life is an Adventure

Happy Friday, everybody!  Do you have any fun and exciting plans for this weekend?  Thoughts of adventure, perhaps?  Well, then you’ll appreciate this card!

Adventure 1

If that doesn’t get you in the adventuring mood, I don’t know what will!  I had pirates on the brain when making this card, can you tell?  I started with a torn, crumpled piece of paper with a map on it, distressed the edges and hand wrote the sentiment.  I then layered it over some text paper and parchment paper (which already looks old because it’s parchment paper) and edged it all with Vintage Photo distress ink.  I ran hemp cord through eyelets I put in the dry embossed paper I found in my stash, grabbed a scrap piece of linen, and went to town with more Vintage Photo.  I tied the linen, applied everything to the card, added some Glossy Accents to the little compass, and voila!  It’s a swashbuckler 😛  Then I decided I couldn’t wait until daylight to take pictures, so this is what I ended up with :/  The inside of the card is decorated with a little more of the text paper and some torn map paper in the corners.

This card would be great for a masculine birthday or graduation card, don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
