Anyway, all elements, with exception to the twine and card candy were recent freebies from Papercraft Inspirations. Unfortunately, not downloads but physical freebies, which is a shame as I'd have liked more!! I inked the edges of the card and then doodled a line around the edge. I cut out the two swords, pirate and parrot but left a thin white border around them so they would stand out a little from the busy and bright backing paper. They were all added with 3d foam pads.
I wrapped the twine around the card and then tied it off with a bow. A bit girlie, but I decided that pirates needed to know about knots and such like. Added the card candy, and that's it!
I've still got a few more of the pirates left. They were supposed to be decoupage images, but me being a miser, decided that I'd get more if I just used one layer. Not sure what I'm going to do with the armless pirates, but I'll think of something!
