I used SVG Cuts's card base from the Everyday Cards kit and changed the Party card to say Ahoy Birthday Boy.
I used elements from my Lettering Delights kit called Aye Matey and I just love all of the elements that helped make the card look rustic (especially love the compass on the back layer!)
The papers I used are from DCWV Rustic Stack.
I used Trendy Twine's Chocolate Truffle, if you haven't explored twine yet, I think it's such a great trend that has taken over in the paper crafting world!
I folded up the message and sealed it with red twine added the words Beware in red and a sword.
Here is another original, and above you will notice that I made it look neat by adding what is called Out of Bounds, which I think looks so cool!
