Yo Ho Ho......

It was a grand-nephew's birthday yesterday and this is the easel card I made for him.  The Cuddly Buddly download Pirate Bear 3D was used to make the topper and the embellishments were elements from the download Pirate Bear which were resized using My Craft Studio Professional.

The treasure island embellishments on the base of the flap were made using Spellbinders long ovals dies and a selection of Quickutz dies with a few self adhesive gems added for jewels.  the stoppers were half inch circles layered and mounted on foam pads.

On the back is one of the images from the the Pirate Bear 3D download.

This is my first card of the year. I always lack enthusiasm to get going again after Christmas but hopefully with that one done the motivation will pick up again.

Thanks for reading
