Joyce shares an awesome Ahoy Matey treasure map card to inspire you today!
Joyce scattered the Ahoy Matey images across a Slide on Over Maze background to look like a treasure map! This would make such a fun invitation to a pirate themed party or just as a way to tell your favorite kid that they arrrrgh awesome!
Joyce kept the colors bright and bold for this totally kid-friendly design!
Thanks so much for inspiring us today, Joyce! I love to see the cute pirates of Ahoy Matey come out to play!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our Interactive challenge! When I first saw the Slide on Over Maze die it immediately reminded me of Pac-Man and I knew eventually I’d need to make this card…and the current challenge was the perfect opportunity! 😉
To start I found my little Pac-Man ghosts from an unlikely die set…the tulips from Little Flowers! I die-cut them from several colors of cardstock and added googly eyes. Then I stamped the cherries from Sweetest Flavor, colored them with Copic markers, and die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I also die-cut a circle from yellow cardstock and cut out a wedge for Pac-Man’s mouth!
Next I die-cut the Slide on Over Maze from A2 panels of black cardstock and Blue Jay cardstock. I trimmed the Blue Jay cardstock panel down by about a quarter inch on all sides and then adhered it to the black cardstock slightly offset so the blue peeked through. I die-cut four more tulip ghosts from black cardstock and adhered them to the colored cardstock with a round foam glue dot. Then I carefully tucked the ghost around the lip of the maze so that the black cardstock was behind the blue and black panels and the colored cardstock was on top.
I used a double layer of foam tape to adhere the maze panel to a panel of black cardstock so that the ghosts and Pac-Man would slide easily along the channels. I adhered the cherries and drew in the dots with a gold gel pen. Finally I added the sentiment from Screen Time heat-embossed onto Blue Jay cardstock to finish the card! I just love how the little googly eyes on the ghosts move as they slide around the maze! 😉
And that’s it! You have two more weeks to join the Interactive Cards challenge and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!
Have a wonderful, crafty weekend!
