Canada Day (July 1st) is just around the corner and to celebrate the holiday I made a Canada Day card. I may not be a Canadian yet but perhaps next year at this time I will be making my first Canada Day card as a Canadian citizen...wouldn't that be fabulous?! :)
If you like inky fingers, you will like making this card. The white tent fold card (4.25" x 5.5") had Distress Ink in Vintage Photo applied along the edges. Next, white paper had a gratuitous amount of Barn Door Distress ink applied and more Vintage Photo along the edges. Here comes some more fun: Imagine Crafts Gold Metallic Creative Medium was applied onto Tim Holtz' Flourish stencil. (I am so loving the Imagine Crafts mediums!) White paper was die cut using Spellbinders' leaf from Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents and then was distressed using the two inks. Leftover Barn Door ink on my craft mat was applied to white seam binding. Quietfire's happy stamp "Celebrate" was stamped in black Adirondack ink and die cut using Spellbinders' French Frills.
For more depth I applied the leaf and Celebrate die cut using foam tape.
I do hope you enjoyed the Canada Day card! To all of my Canadian friends, I wish you all the best holiday!
