Pirate Edwin brings Birthday Greetings at Just Magnolia
A very happy Saturday to everyone!! I hope that your week was a delightful one and that you are heading to a fun-filled weekend!! Jacque is on the mend and the beautiful day here makes it even more exciting!!! Gosh, I just love seeing all of the flowers and greenery sprouting out!!! And the roses are even starting to bloom!! Yipppeeee!!!
Over at Just Magnolia this week we were asked to use at least 2 Magnolia images on our DT Sample Cards and what fun this was!!! I don't use Edwin very often but this time I decided to use that darling little Pirate Edwin for a special birthday card! The base of the card is Bazzill, all matting is PTI, and all DP is digital. For the front and inside I stamped Edwin 3 times on Cryogen White, colored him with Copics and cut each of them out. Both panels on the front were machine stitched and I airbrushed the sky and clouds for the boat scene. I also stamped the Row Boat twice and colored with Copics, cutting them out also and using dimensional tape on the boat and Edwin. The sails were designed digitally and each was rounded before using silicone for dimension. To complete the front I used a couple of charms to make the boat's wheel and the doubloon for the string treatment, and several buttons for the sword and beach scene made with Sand Ultra-Fine Flowersoft. Gosh...every beach has to have a starfish and seashell!!! The AHOY is a QuicKutz die and the sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie's Pirate Sentiments.
For the inside of the card I used one of the Edwins and perched him on the Barrel and Skull and added a skull and crossbones charm and an anchor charm tied with MS red/white baking twine. Edwin was also propped up with dimensional tape. For the jotting panel I added YoHoHo from the QuicKutz die set and a pirate hat button.
I hope you like my little creation and will let me know what you think of him! Thank you so much for dropping by today and I hope you will gather at least a couple of your darling Maggies and join us at Just Magnolia where you can win a very nice prize this week!!! I hope your weekend is a special one indeed!!! With Big Maggie Hugs until the next time!!!!
