Arg Matey! It’s a Pirate party! Part 1 Pirate Invitation

The day after N’s Super Hero training camp party last year he wanted to start planning his next party. And what did he want? A PIRATE PARTY!!!! OH yeah!

I am not sure who had more fun planning his party him or me! The great thing about my son is when he makes a decision you can consider it set in stone. Lil’ Miss M on the other hand will change her mind by the hour. So I wasn’t worried about starting gathering supplies and ideas for a pirate party. If N said he wanted a pirate party then that is what we would be having.

There were sooooo many great ideas for different pirate invitations out there. I had a really hard time deciding what pattern to use.

Finally I decided on a trifold card. It looks super complicated but it really wasn’t that hard to make. The base card is 3 cuts and 4 scores. Cutting all the accent papers were either rectangles or cut on the cuttlebug with Spellbinder dies. The skull and cross bones were stamped. The ships on the bottom and the jolly roger flag were cut out using a Cricut with the Paper Doll Dress up cartridge.
