Happy Canada Day!!

Sharing a card I made for Canada Day today using KLM Digital Designs – Canadian Gnome. I paired this up with stickers from Photoplay – O Canada 2. So proud to be a Canadian and being able to celebrate it every July 1.

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and fussy cut around it. Using a black marker, I went around all of the edges.

For the base card, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper was used at the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I created the background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a mixture of cloud stencils I created using Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie and Whimsy Stamps – Grass and Cloud Edger Die Sets. The grass was made using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn and stencils I created using Lawn Fawn – Lawn Cut dies and Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders.

To complete the card, I drew a flag pole with rope and attached the flag sticker. I added the small Maple Leaf sticker onto the hat andĀ attached the image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I applied some Copic Y17 and Y13 below the gnome. Lastly, I added the “Happy Canada Day” sticker.
