Pirate Birthday Card

Hope you all had a good weekend! We spent Saturday with family celebrating two nephews' birthdays. March is one of the months for lots of birthdays in our families, with a total of 5, and 3 of those happen three days in a row!

Today's card was for our nephew who turned 3 earlier this month. I've had a birthday card in mind using the pirate from Hey, Valentine ever since I got the set, and I think this one might be duplicated for at least one other nephew.

The stamps in this Valentine set are really great for more than just valentines. If you put a piece of masking tape over the greeting before you ink up the stamp, you can replace it with something different, like I did here.

After inking, just carefully remove the masking tape and then stamp. Some people like to cut the greeting part of the stamp off, creating two separate stamps. That's another option if you want to make your stamps more versatile.

So, even though Valentine's Day is long gone, you might still want to consider this stamp set. You can use it next year for your valentines AND make lots of other cute cards throughout the year.
