It was Cooper's Pirate Birthday Party this past weekend. My daughter and I put together the invitations above using Paperdolls Cricut Cartridge.
I then used a grunge board cutout and used it as a mask on his birthday card. I sprayed over it with Glimmer Mist giving it an old look for the skeleton. I, once again, used a paperdoll cut out for the pirate and ship. I distressed the sails by wetting them down and rubbing them until the paper was ruffed up and applied some distress ink. Two buttons for the skeleton eyes and a few stickers finished it out.
On the day of the party I made Pirate cupcakes for the kids and a Pirate cake for everyone else.
It's too bad that the Birthday Pirate broke his leg the day before he turned two and was not able to play most of the games. He had a good time anyway and is now the proud owner of a black cast!
