The Ten-Minute Pirate Ship

Here's a super fast and easy card - it actually took 10 minutes to make!! Of course, that's because (notice the similarities to the post below) I had colored and matted this ship for the previous card, only to find it was WAY too big to look good on that card. SO, I continued with that one but saved this image to make another card. Ha! So the 10 minutes doesn't include the main image (which is, of course, the only way I got it done in 10 minutes!).

The colors are the same as the previous card too. Kraft cardstock for the Verve September Project Parade - Natural Fiber Challenge. Still loving getting reacquainted with Kraft! Also this week's Color Throwdown using Olive, Kraft and Red (CTD12). The card is 4-1/4" square.

Supplies, etc.: Stamps - Pirate Ship and Adventure Words from JessicaLynnOriginal.com, plus an A*Muse oval. Paper - Red, Kraft, Olive, GP 110# white. Ink - Palette Noir. Other - Copics, dimensionals, black and olive grosgrain ribbon from SU, Cuttlebug and ribbon tag nestabilities.

Cute! I love how you did not make a traditional Christmas card, but made a "boy" card! Thanks so much for playing, come back again!

I think it would make a great men's or boy's card! Love the colors and the simplicity too!
