Birthday Card for Hubby

Made this card for my hubby.  It’s his birthday today.  Happy Birthday, Sweetie!  J

He really liked the pirate card I made for a friend’s BD, so it only seemed apropos to make him a “Buccaneer” BD card, too.

Had a ball making this card, adding all the cute li’l designs found on the Imagine Buccaneer cartridge.  I LOVE that cartridge.  Such vibrant pix.  Everything is pop-dotted but it doesn't really show up in the pix.  I tried to get side shots of it, but they turned out blurry.  

Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine Cartridge: – "Buccaneer"
Cricut Cartridge – "Simply Charmed"
Glue – ATG; Zig Two Way
Cardstock – red for the card base; white (for the Imagine)
Patterned paper
Corner rounder – Ticket Stub
Rhinstone - for the pirate chest
Pop dots

The entire card was created using the Imagine "Buccaneer" cartridge.  However, the sun w/ sunglasses was from the "Simply Charmed" cartridge.  Love the li’l octopus, wearing a pirate hat. J

I learned a li’l trick whilst  pop-dotting the sunglasses on the sun.  The white popdots were  too visible, so I colored them w/ a black BIC marker.

The sentiment was computer-generated.

Also made the 3-D pirate chest which is found on the Buccaneer cartridge.  It looks so realistic.   Filled it w/ gold doubloons.  Actually, they're chocolates.  LOL

Hope hubby likes it!  J


  1. Thank you for stopping by my blog .I love your Lady Bugs!!!!!!!I had a friend design my blog and now she has "disappeared" but I am afraid I will need a change in the spring.I am a new follower and enjoying looking at your projects.The sentiment on the blue Christmas card that says from our home to yours is a digi stamp from the cutting cafe (Regina Easter)----there are four or six sentiments in a square and they are very inexpensive.She does beautiful work .Have a great day.
    Hugs, Anita

  2. Hi Linda!
    I'm popping in to see what you have been up to. I love the card and treasure chest. Your hubby will love it. It's funny I was going to make a card for my son's birthday using this cartridge. I changed my mind at the last minute and decided on something else. It really looks great!

  3. I am sure he loved this! It know it had to be fun to put this together!! Love the 3D chest too!
