Pirate’s Life: A belated birthday card

I love the whole 28 Lilac Lane line, but my favorite are definitely the embellishment kits that come in boxes. With trim, sequins, buttons, charms, and more – well they’re just such fun! I’ve got a new easy card to share with you today featuring one of the newest ones.

Yes indeed, I know what I’m in the mood for this week: pull out my Pirate Life embellishment kit and get creating! This kit is available in stores – and it is such fun to play with! Love the red and greys. Looking for this kit? You can find it online at shops including (affiliate link used) Scrapbook.com

To make a card like mine it couldn’t be easier! You’ll want a stamped sentiment, clip art, or other central image. Place some foam adhesive under (in the center), and place on your card. Then line it with double sided tape right at the edge. Once that’s done you add buttons and embellishments tucked under all along the sentiment. That easy! This works with patterned paper or cardstock – and any theme you like!

My card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 closed – and I’m loving the belated sentiment. I also used a cameo from the kit for this card. This is a really old stamp set so I’m not sure where it came from- but like I said before any would work!

I love how this turned out – and I can’t stop using this pirate inspired kit! Looking for another one? They’re all at scrapbook.com! I know some of you have been looking for the embellishment kits so I’m happy to say they can be found there. What have you been crafting with the 28 Lilac Lane kits? Do you have a favorite? Leave a comment here and you might find some “pirate treasure” mailed your way! I’ll be selecting at least one comment here for a random prize just as a thank you for commenting and reading my blog. I so appreciate the support, and I’m glad to share my ideas with you here.

  1. Hi May, That Pirate Life kit is so ADORABLE, I saw it over at Scrabook.com when I did my order last week. I made My mother a shaker card and used your Winter White sequin/bead mix and the Pretty Pink sequin/bead mix, I had a few flowers on front and also a few Pink buttons from my bottle of Fiesta emb. she loved it. Also it was my first shaker card I have made, I have been making cards for years but I have never made a shaker one till now, she got such a kick out of it, she has never seen one before and thought it was the coolest thing. Thanks May for making my 1st shaker card come out awesome.

  2. This is a new line for me. I had not heard of it before. I am going to check it out right now. Love the card you created.
