Today's set will help you with some of those masculine cards, with which we all sometimes struggle. For the background I used a piece of patterned paper showing the Caribbean Ocean, where there were many pirates in days gone by.



My second card is a stand-up card made with a Sizzix die and some nautical looking patterned paper.


Please visit the rest of the team members' blogs and comment for a chance to win a free stamp set. Here's the Design Team:
