I have to show the pirate set one more time before it’s retired. I received this card at Regional’s I think two years ago and I still love it. I love how it opens up to revile the whole message. It was created by Christy Christiansen from St. George Utah. I will have to say that this is still one of my favorite swaps.
She used a 3×6 sheet for the back ground so it fits in our open ended envelops and then she used a sheet of 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 for the card. She scored it at 2 3/4 for the bottom and middle section then tore the top edge so that when it fold over it is just slightly smaller.
She punched a whole in the top layer for the Ahoy Matey and then placed the layered words on the middle layer.
When you open it all the way you can see the message inside. I believe it was the retired birthday set from the old catalog, but you could use almost any set.
