Cricut Pirates and Princesses Cartridge Pirate Birthday card

I got the Pirate and Princesses cart when I was in Auckland at the Sanzi workshop. I knew there would come a time when I needed to do something on this cart. My DD wanted a birthday card with a pirate so I used the first icon and chose to weld the 2 pirates together with CCR. Wifi to my E2 and cut them out.

 Now putting him together was really something all those little bits and I have never been good at jigsaws, but I did add stickles to him to make him a bit of a flashy pirate. The Pink under him is a mat that I am working on.
 Then as the little chap is turning 5 I added a five to the inside of the card so that when the card opens up he has a big 5 he can have scrapbooked for his birthday.

 Now the round top box has been made this time into a treasure chest. The back has treasure chest inked through a stencil of vinyl. the vinyl letters I used on the front.
 These letters are 7mm high which is just over 1/4 of an inch. Very small and I was impressed the cricut could cut them. I did kiss cut them in vinyl which I think made a difference.
On the front of the treasure chest I added a tag and added 4 sparklie brads to set off the vinyl wording.
I love the sparklie Pirate
