O Canada

Happy Canada Day everyone!

Happy long weekend to a majority of you! Whether you're Canadian or American, we'll both be celebrating the pride for each of our nations! I know that it's been a while since I've posted - it's been a super busy week with midterms, assignments, and group projects. I really tried to break the pattern of posting four posts one month, six the next, and back through the cycle again, but with my laptop breaking down and school work, it just didn't happen. :(  I've got a little of a breather after my celebrations I had to make some time to create a card to celebrate Canada's 144th birthday! 

This is a standard A2 sized card (4.25 x 5.5).  Representing Canada are our beavers!  It must have been the beaver fur trading way back then!  And of course, 'O Canada' is our national anthem :)

It definitely is extremely hard to find a Canada stamp set, but of course Pink By Design has one!  It's got some cute sentiments on it that really represent Canada :) You can purchase it here.

Materials Used:
  • Beaver cut at 3" from the Create-a-Critter Cartridge
  • Sentiment from Pink By Design Canada set 
  • Patterned paper from Recollections basics 
  • Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink
  • Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Ink
  • Creative  Memories Corner Rounder
  • Brown flocking powder
  • Fiskars maple leaf punch
  • White gelly roll pen
  • Mini brads
  • Irock studs
  • Toothpicks
The sunshine came out just in time for the long weekend.  Be safe and enjoy everyone!  I've got loads of group projects to work on, but I've also got an entire scrapbook to complete by the middle of this month for my anniversary - stay tuned for that! Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines...

Until next time's treasures,
