I took a few of pics of my ship shaped card! The first one is free standing but my ship likes rock so I took another to make sure it wasn't blurry.
I simply cut a 5" circle and folded in half to create the card base. I inserted a skewer that I chopped down to the size I wanted between the "wood" panel and the card base. I used my CM circle cutter to cut a tan circle 1/4" smaller and cut that in half.
I ran the panel through a wood grain embossing folder. inked it up with chalking ink then free handed the "planks".
The "sail" is a piece of wall paper sample with a skull and cross bones stamped and embossed on a piece of paper. I inked up all edges to distress. Then I added the wheel.
