CCC Fancy Folds

So I finally made it back to the craft table.  Ahhh it feels like forever!  I had to get a card made for a birthday that Jake gets to attend on Friday for a classmate.  I know my "fancy fold" really isn't all that fancy, but it works I guess.  Robyn's Fetish is sponsoring this week on Crafty Creations, so you will have to swing by to see what the others did with her fab images again.  

 This one was very simple.  The ship is actually on the paper from DCWV and is pre-glass effected so that made this one a quick make.  Just had to make the card open right to get the boat where I wanted it on the card, thus the fancy fold.  I covered with other flap with the matching paper, sanded all edges, stamped Ahoy Matey and made a gold pirate coin button closure.  Some paper rafia ties it closed.   In the inside I stamped and colored the treasure chest as well as the "Happy Birthday Matey".  I added pearl effects to the jewels on the chest as well as spica gold pens to the coins.
