Carta Bella Paper: Pirate Ship

Ahoy there, Mateys! What little (or big!) boy wouldn’t love this 3D pirate ship sitting on their shelf?! This was a really fun project to create using the Carta Bella Paper Transatlantic Travel collection.

I die cut the ship using my Silhouette Electronic Die Cutting Machine and a cut file by Cre8ive Cutz. It looks daunting, but it was so easy to assemble. The papers of the Transatlantic Travel collection are what really make this project look special

The bottom of the boat was cut from the Take the Ride Paper. I added panels in Travel Gazette Paper (stripe) and the polka dot paper from the 6×6 paper pad. The stripe really gives this project a pirate feel! I added strips of the stripe paper to the sails, as well, to balance the pattern and keep the pirate-feel going throughout.

I added a cluster of die cuts from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack and Ephemera Pack to both the side of the boat and the ship’s sail … beckoning you to go on your own high sea adventure!
Black enamel dots from the Echo Park Wedding Bliss collection give the cannons some dimension and shine.

I added eyelets and jute twine to the sail to make it more realistic. I always love adding textural elements like this to a project!

At the top of the ship is a spooky pirate’s flag flying proudly. The skull image is by Echo Park and can be found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #80358).
I tied on a couple of tags from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack for a bit more detail here, as well.

Inside the ship I added a liner of the Travel Map Paper with the compass pattern.
And how cool is the sail with the script pattern on the front and the map pattern on the back. Eek! I love it so much!

Thanks for letting me share this fun project with you! My little swashbucklers are already clamoring at who gets to keep this one in their room! Ha!
