It’s a Canada Day Celebration! How can I honor my American Inkie Friends & Followers without honoring my Canadian Inkie Friends & Followers?! I AM Canadian ya know! So when asked “Where’s the Canada Day Card” I got right on it.
Canada Day Card
Today’s card will not have a video tutorial so I will do my best to describe how I made it. It’s unusual for me not to upload a video with a card, but I didn’t have an available slot on my YouTube schedule to squeeze this in. Let’s see how good I can explain how I made this card in honor of Canada’s 153rd Birthday!
**ALL SUPPLIES LISTED BELOW WITH PHOTOS & LINKS**
For this Canada Day Card, I followed the same style of card I made for the 4th of July – Independence Day Card. I cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock for the card base to 7 X 8 1/2 – Scored at the 3 1/2 inch mark on the 7-inch side. That way the card ends up being 3 1/2 X 8 1/2 and will fit in a letter-size envelope. You can always view the VIDEO for the 4th of July Card if you need a visual.
The white mat for the card base is 1/8-inch smaller on both sides I used Whisper White Cardstock and cut 2 (one for the mat and one for the inside of the card).
Making the card look like a flag
The Real Red pieces on the left and right were cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies (the 3 1/4-inch X 2″ one ). Then for the center, I used some retired shimmer cardstock using the 3rd largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.
For the “Oh” I used the retired Hand-Lettered Prose Dies. I cut out 2 of the word in Whisper White and then cut it out a final time with the same retired shimmer cardstock as the center of the card. I glued these all together for added dimension. Then I cut the word “CANADA” out 3 times with Real Red Cardstock using the Playful Alphabet Dies and also glued them all together for the same effect.
I stamped the mountains and trees on Basic Grey Cardstock with Memento. After I die cut them out with the Majestic Mountain Dies I squeezed a little Versamark Refill into the lid of my Versamark Stamp Pad and used a Sponge Dauber to apply Versamark Ink to the tops of the mountains and the edges of the trees. I didn’t use an embossing tool to remove static because I wanted the extra little granules of powder to remain on the images so when I heat embossed the White Stampin’ Emboss Powder it looked like extra bits of snow on the images. I really like how it turned out and looked really natural.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the mountains again in Memento Ink. Then I stamped the sentiment out of the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set.
That’s pretty much it. It was quite an easy card to make. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me in the comments below.
